Bob Dunn, NHPA Historian, has just completed publishing a book about a phase of our sport that very few are aware of - The AAU National Amateur Horseshoe Pitching Championships. It is interesting and well done. After the publishing costs are recovered the proceeds will go to the NHPF, Bob will not earn a penny on this project. Please forward this postcard to all on your contact list and have it reprinted in your charter newsletter. Encourage your members to purchase a copy and for clubs to purchase copies to use in tournaments as fundraisers. Let's support Bob's efforts here to raise funds for the NHPF.
