Although this event is NOT uniquely American (a game like this was played by Roman
soldiers in 100 BC) the game is now universally enjoyed and epitomizes Americana. The
amount of skill required to achieve a competitive level in this sport is unbelievable. The
Greater New Orleans Senior Olympics event is held in West Jefferson - in Waggaman, at
the public horseshoe pitch affiliated with Thomas Jefferson Park. GNOSO Event
Coordinator Landry Camardelle has been pitching horseshoes since the Andrew Jackson
defeated the British at English Turn. Co-coordinator Jenny Camardelle has considerably
less experience and roughly equivalent skill. See below the Results for a scene uniquely
Americana - as Lionel Guise watches.
