If a team is not present within 5 minutes after their match was supposed to start they will be disqualified and removed from the tournament.


1. Any shoe must be within one horseshoe-width (measured across the outside of the open end of the shoe) of the stake to be considered for points. (Official rules call for 6 inches max).
2. The closest shoe to the stake gets 1 point.
