Shoes & Cue Iowa is Sunday

We have a cool event coming up this Sunday, July 15th at Jasper Winery in downtown Des Moines across from Gray’s Lake.

The weather is supposed to be excellent, and the event will be great. Please join the Templeton team for a great day featuring Madhouse Beer and award-winning BBQ from Iowa’s own Woodfellas BBQ team. The event is free and goes from 3:00 – 8:00 p.m.

There will be a horseshoe tournament beginning at 3:30 p.m. with casual horseshoe rules – i.e. you do not need to be good at horseshoes to play.

If you want to be in the horseshoe tournament it is $50 per team, which includes your entry fee and a free Templeton t-shirt for two players, food and drink tickets. There will be trophies and cash prizes for the top three teams as well.

It should be a great day, and we hope you will join us. To sign up a horseshoe team click here.
