Twilight Croquet: With 21 players coming out for the inaugural of the 2014-15 Twilight Golf Croquet season, Sal Lucca took home the Clarence Trophy after edging out the other finalists Stuart Joseph, Jim Grady, Karen Beck and Linda Harris. It was a shoot out at the stake situation with all five coming within inches of each other. Hope to see many of you at Pot Luck Sunday at 2 P.M. Golf croquet starts at 2:30 P.M. that day.
