Hall of Fame

 

For a complete list of all inductees, see bottom of page.


December 2, 2001 - The bi-annual Horseshoe Ontario Hall of Fame Day was held at the Khaki Club with approximately eighty (80) members, past inductees, friends and relatives present. Three very fine gentlemen were inducted, Elsworth Crawford, Vern Hutchings, and Bruce Hohl. Their
contributions, in whatever way, have contributed greatly to the betterment of horseshoe pitching. This event was thoroughly enjoyed by all in attendance with much chit chat and memories. If anyone knows of any pitchers or organizers past and present that deserve to be in the Horseshoe Ontario Hall of Fame, please come forward with a resume.

Thank you all.
