VETERANS DAY PARADE
We want to thank all of the members who helped behind the scenes and those who walked in the Parade, distributed the information cards and worked at the booth. Great job and greatly appreciated.
Full Moon Games
At 6 P.M. 26 players with lights in hand gathered for our Moonlight Croquet. The full moon was out and clubhouse lights were on. Most players had already partnered up so gathering foursomes was easy.We only played two 45 minute game as players were anxious to get to drinks, pub meal or chess. Lights worked well once you learned how to adjust them. One strategy players picked up on was not to shine your light in the area where your opponent was playing their ball. And for shine the light towards the wicket that your partner was going for!
What Fun everyone had and the comments were "we should do this more often even without a Full Moon.
