Mariner Sands Vs NCC
Double banked on Mariner Sands 4 courts the Mariner Sands contingent overwhelmed the visiting National Croquet Club team 6-2 in spirited play on Tuesday, December 8th. It was decided to interchange players for the second game where friendly play brought the opposing groups closer together. Mariner player Randall McAndrews offered to teach the six wicket game to NCC players visiting Maine this summer. The rainy weather didn't put a damper on fun play. NCC looks forward to the return of Mariner Sands players in a rematch at the National Croquet Center early in the New Year. Curious George thanks all players for turning out. Don Whalen
A record breaking 48 players turned out for Twilight Golf Croquet with Linda Grady hitting the stake to take home the Clarence Trophy. Linda edged out finalists Sally Sellwood (2nd place), Rosemary Faulconer, Donna Ostrosky, Shirley Moslo, Jean Bytner, Sal Lucca, Sandra Lucca and new player Chad Goodwin. What a fun day and no rain.

The FULL moon games will resume in late fall. We play two quick games. 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.
