KC Club Schedule: Week 3–CANCELED

Due to the inclement weather forecast for Saturday morning, this week’s session/free clinic is canceled. We hope to see you next Saturday in Lee’s Summit!

KC Club Schedule: Week 3–Please Join Us For Free Clinic

SATURDAY GAME: The forecast doesn’t look good, but then again this time last week it didn’t look good and Saturday morning turned out to be fine, if a bit chilly. So we will plan to meet Saturday morning at the Cleveland Croquet Club (23567 State Line Rd., Cleveland, MO) at 9 am. This will be a special edition of our usual get-together, as Matt Smith will be joining us to give free lessons/tips/advice. Smith won the national 9-wicket title in 2009 and 2011, so he knows a little bit about the game. Players of all skill levels are welcome. I do ask that you please reply to me (darin914 @ yahoo dot com) if you are planning on joining us on Saturday, just so we can have a headcount. Please watch for an email update or check the KC Croquet Club website for weather updates.

LEE’S SUMMIT T-BONE TOURNAMENT: I hope you have signed up for the Lee’s Summit T-Bone Tournament already, but there’s still time if you haven’t. Entry fees are $20 for MCA members, $30 for non-members, and beginners who want to play in a cutthroat game will have a $10 entry fee. As always, tournament fees may be paid on-site. That would be Howard Park in Lee’s Summit (3498 NE Independence Ave.). And lunch is included in the fee. To sign up, please email kccroquetclub@gmail.com or check the event’s Facebook page.

WEEKLY SCHEDULE: We’ll resume our weekly sessions after the Lee’s Summit event. Plan to practice and learn more about your game with us every Saturday at the Cleveland Croquet Club (weather permitting, naturally).
4/29—Cleveland Croquet Club, 9 am
5/6—Lee’s Summit T-Bone Tournament, Lee’s Summit, MO

KC Club Schedule: Week 2–No Go, As The Rain Falls And The Wind Blows

SATURDAY GAME: We finally got out there to play a little croquet last week, but two weeks in a row is apparently asking too much. The forecast for Saturday morning is unpleasant: cool, rainy, and windy. As that will be on the heels of Wednesday night’s rain and some more on Friday, this week’s Saturday session is canceled, sadly. Let’s hope for better weather next week, especially for our…

FREE CROQUET CLINIC: Please see the attached flyer for more info on the free coaching clinic for players of all skill levels. Matt Smith has earned many honors on the croquet court, including national 9-wicket titles in 2009 and 2011. He will be joining us on April 29 at the Cleveland Croquet Club to give free lessons/tips/advice. This is a very cool opportunity and I hope you will make plans to join us.

LEE’S SUMMIT T-BONE TOURNAMENT: Time to start thinking about the first tournament of the year. Entry fees are $20 for MCA members, $30 for non-members, and beginners who want to play in a cutthroat game will have a $10 entry fee. As always, tournament fees may be paid on-site. That would be Howard Park in Lee’s Summit (3498 NE Independence Ave.). And lunch is included in the fee. For more info, please email kccroquetclub@gmail.com.

WEEKLY SCHEDULE: The Lee’s Summit T-Bone Tournament is less than a month away now. Plan to practice and learn more about your game with us every Saturday at the Cleveland Croquet Club (weather permitting, naturally).

KC Club Schedule: Week 1 At Last!

SATURDAY GAME: At last the weather has cleared off a bit and Bill has declared the court in Cleveland to be playable. The 2017 season starts Saturday at 9 am at the Cleveland Croquet Club (23567 State Line Rd., Cleveland, MO). Of course, it is still April so there is a bit of rain forecast between now and then. I don’t think it will be enough to postpone this week’s session, but please check the website (kccroquet.wordpress.com) or watch for this email for weather updates.

FREE CROQUET CLINIC: Don’t forget the upcoming free coaching clinic for players of all skill levels. Matt Smith has earned many honors on the croquet court, including national 9-wicket titles in 2009 and 2011. He will be joining us on April 29 at the Cleveland Croquet Club to give free lessons/tips/advice. This is a very cool opportunity and I hope you will make plans to join us.

KC Club Schedule–Week 1: Rained Out Again

SATURDAY GAME: The rain got us again, unfortunately. According to Bill, the court at Cleveland is “starting to look like a wheat field,” as it’s too wet to mow. Also, just accessing the facility is a problem with all the mud. So once again we will try for next Saturday (April 15) at 9 am at the Cleveland Croquet Club (23567 State Line Rd., Cleveland, MO). The good news is the long-term forecast looks much drier and sunnier. Stay tuned to the website (kccroquet.wordpress.com) or watch for this email for weather updates for next week, but I think there’s a good chance we will finally get to play.

WEEKLY SCHEDULE: Sure, we can complain about the rain now, but just think how much we’ll miss it in July. Anyway, we will plan to meet on Saturday mornings at the Cleveland Croquet Club, weather permitting, at 9 am each week. And remember, the Lee’s Summit T-Bone Tournament is just a month away!

KC Club Schedule–Week 1 (Sort Of!)

SATURDAY GAME: Hello again everyone, I trust you had a fun winter, especially since it wasn’t too harsh. I also trust that you are ready to play some croquet. The hope was to start the weekly sessions this Saturday, but Bill told me the court was soggy BEFORE we got all this rain the last couple of days. So we will aim for next Saturday (April 8) at 9 am at the Cleveland Croquet Club (23567 State Line Rd., Cleveland, MO). Stay tuned to the website (kccroquet.wordpress.com) or watch for this email for weather updates.
