Earl Cordes attends 33rd annual horseshoe tournament in Barton City. (July 6, 2018)


Barton City – Earl Cordes hosted the 33rd annual Horseshoe tournament in Barton City,Michigan. The contest was named in Cordes’ honor in 1990. Cordes said the tournament would not be possible without his “right-hand-man” Roxann who takes care of all of the points, brackets and awards.

91-year-old Cordes is happy to be back at the tournament, but hopes to be able to compete next year. The competitors love having Alpena Sports Hall of Famer Earl around because he always brings his youthful spirit and love for sports.
