Horseshoe tournament draws thousands

POCATELLO, Idaho — The 2004 World Horseshoe Pitchers Tournament brought almost 3,000 people to Pocatello for the summer event, officials said, and now the city is a leading candidate to host the tournament again in 2006.

Fifteen cities have shown interest in hosting the event so far, but only Pocatello and St. George, Utah, have submitted letters of intent and signed contracts. The winner is expected to be announced in January.

This year’s event brought in more than $400,000 in hotel lodging revenue alone, said Rebecca Satter, executive director of the Greater Pocatello Convention and Visitors Bureau.
