KC Club Schedule–End of Season

SATURDAY GAME: Sorry for the late notice, everyone. I was waiting to see if the rain forecast for tonight and tomorrow morning cleared up. It looks like we might stay dry, but it’s still going to be pretty cool in the morning. Next Saturday doesn’t look very good either, so this might be the end of the 2017 season, unless we get some unseasonably warm weather.

It was a good year. I hope you all enjoy your winter and find some way to fit in a little practice time. Stay tuned for details on the MCA’s Annual General Meeting in January, and of course we’ll let you know when the 2018 season starts up. Or if we do get some unusually nice weather between now and next spring, perhaps we’ll have a bonus session.

KC Club Schedule–Week 28: Hoping The Rain Holds Off

Here’s hoping the pattern repeats this week. We hope you’ll be able to join us at 9:00 am at the Cleveland Croquet Club (23567 State Line Rd., Cleveland, MO).

WEEKLY SCHEDULE: We’ll play every week as long as we can into the fall, weather permitting.

KC Club Schedule–Week 26: Rained Out

The court has had too much rain this week and we should have more coming in overnight, so this week’s session is canceled. Hope to see you all next week though!

KC Club Schedule–Week 26: Back To Saturdays

SATURDAY GAME: With tournament play behind us, it’s time to focus on playing for fun the rest of the fall. Unfortunately it gets late early out there (hat tip to Yogi Berra), so we will be switching to Saturday mornings for our weekly sessions. We hope you’ll be able to join us at 9:00 am atthe Cleveland Croquet Club (23567 State Line Rd., Cleveland, MO). Also, the forecast between now and Saturday is a bit soggy, so watch for updates in case the court is waterlogged. Bill and Di won’t be there but the gate will be open and the court set up so all are welcome.

WEEKLY SCHEDULE: We’ll play every week as long as we can into the fall.

KC Club Schedule–Week 22: The Last One (For A While)

WEDNESDAY GAME: This Wednesday night might actually be a little on the cool side, but it should be a very pleasant evening for croquet.

WEEKLY SCHEDULE: We’ll plan on resuming weekly play after the Wicket & Peg tournament. Although the MCA season will be over, it’s still fun to go out and play.
