SATURDAY GAME — Eagles’ Landing 9:00 AM: I’ve returned from my European adventures just in time to kick off a couple of Saturday sessions at the Eagles’ Landing Golf Course in Belton, MO. Start time is 9:00 a.m. and we’ll run through beginner tutorials first, then hopefully follow with two rounds of actual games. If the weather is questionable watch your email for an update by 8:00 a.m. Saturday morning. Address: 4200 Bong Ave, Belton, MO 64012
MISSOURI OPEN: Don’t forget to email email@example.com to reserve your spot for the 2015 Missouri Open at Eagles’ Landing to be played Saturday, June 13. We’ll get started by 8:30 a.m., but we will likely stagger starts. More details are coming, but the key is we may need to cap entries and the first players to sign up have priority.
SUNFLOWER WICKETS — JUNE 5: The MCA is looking for a few more volunteers for the Friday afternoon Sunflower Wickets Benefit in Olathe, Kansas. Email firstname.lastname@example.org if you are interested or have questions.
SOCIAL MEDIA: Justin Marciniak has been working on developing social media for the MCA. We decided that with the USCA Midwest Region Facebook group that it would be a bad idea to have a second “Midwest” Facebook group. So, the Facebook group for the MCA is actually the Kansas City Croquet Club Facebook Group. I encourage everyone on the list to Like the page as it will become more of a resource for our activities. Thanks to Justin, the MCA does now have a Twitter account and an Instagram account.
TOURNAMENTS: The full MCA schedule is still evolving, but keep in mind that we are still working on an event in Kansas with Saturday, July 11 as our primary target. Depending on the flexibility of the venue, that could potentially shift to July 18.
