Winners, Robbers, and Radio Silence

All in a day on Sat 9th Sept.

Where there’s a Will there’s a double Winner!

Point of Order. GC Singles Final. Will with Referee Brian Jamieson preventing a crushing defeat for Pam.

Many thanks to Brian Jamieson, recovering from recent surgery to his hand, for dedicating a whole day to being on the lawn – first to Referee the Final of our GC Singles Competition, during which Will learned a thing or two about crushes and double hits! – and then to doing an interview on Hospital Radio Reading about our links to the Southern Croquet Association, amongst other topics discussed.

A friend gave me this old Croquet Association Handbook from 1949 so whilst the Broadcast was running a few of us tried to figure out the Rules for Robber Croquet. It is a version of what is better known as Pirates. I think this could be a fun game to include more people on the lawn at some our our event days. More anon!
