The weather forecast for Saturday morning looks nice enough–no threat of rain for once! We will plan on meeting each Saturday morning as deep into the fall as we can go.

09/10/16 KC Club Schedule – Week 23: MCA Championship; Saturday Morning Rainout

MCA CHAMPIONSHIP: Just a reminder, invitations have been sent out for the MCA Championship, to be held September 17 at Markey Park in Belton, MO. If you received a bid but haven’t accepted yet, please do so today. Even if you didn’t qualify for the Championship, you are welcome to participate in the Six Ball Championship which will be held September 16 at Markey Park. As we found out last year, it’s a special experience to play at night under the lights (and hopefully there won’t be any severe storms this time!). The Six Ball Championship is open to all players; it is free for MCA members and just $10 for non-members. It will start at 6 pm. For the MCA Championship, start times are: 8:30 am for Silver, 9:30 am for Bronze, 10:45 am for Gold and noon for Pro.

WEEKLY SCHEDULE: Due to the rain we’ve already received and with more on the way, our weekly practice session at the Cleveland Croquet Club (23567 State Line Rd., Cleveland, MO) is canceled for this week. Even after the MCA Championship, we will be playing on Saturday mornings as long as the weather permits.

08/27/16 KC Club Schedule – Week 21: Golf Croquet Postponed; Stay Tuned For Saturday

GOLF CROQUET 101 SERIES: This week’s Golf Croquet 101 Thursday Night Series is postponed. But please join us on Thursday, Sept. 1 for the final session of the summer, which will continue the focus on tactics during the intro lesson at 6:30. We follow that by jumping into golf croquet games right after. The intro session is free and we also get brand new players up and running during that session. We’d love to have you join us! Although it’s a different game, the basics of golf croquet can be very useful in 9-wicket.
Fee: $10 per session ($5 for seniors/juniors).
Eagles’ Landing Address: 4200 Bong Ave, Belton, MO 64012.
