On October 8, the Nebraska Beta Chapter hosted its first Polish horseshoe tournament. The tournament raised $385 for the local hospital’s cancer research center. Hosted behind the chapter house on the University’s practice field, twenty teams of two people stood with water bottles in hand, throwing frisbees at opposing teams PVC poles to knock off the colored can.
For nearly two hours, teams competed in a single-elimination bracket for the chance to win University clothing, restaurant gift cards, hockey tickets, and the grand prize of two tickets to the Nebraska vs. Iowa game.
Brother Dan Chacon hopes the event can continue to grow from here, as this was just the first year.
“In the end, all of the teams and all brothers had a great time,” Dan stated. “Our goal next year is to double team sign-ups, and raise $600 for Breast Cancer Research.”
