Croquet League
« on: April 16, 2008, 12:28:47 PM »
I just read my uni e-mails and it appears one was actually of use for a change, don't know if it's worth entering USMC teams, but if not it at least means the lawn is open from May...

Tuesday and  Friday Lunchtime 1.00-2.00
Location: Croquet lawn
5 per team
2 players  per team
Leagues start on 6th May please attend a workshop (Wednesdays 1-2 pm) before participation

Beat me to it Matt. It deeply upsets me that I can't attend due to my intensive modules  :( but i expect a team of USMC to enter.
Many donkeys have tried to match wits with me, but almost all have failed.

I was reading 'The Simplified Laws of Association Croquet', they are slightly complicated, I'd expect that's why they have a workshop, but my favourite line of them is..

Roquet => Croquet => Continuation

I'll talk to chalky today, hopefully he'll be able to find someone who actually knowns when the lawn opens as none of the staff even appear to know what croquet is let alone when the pitch will be ready.

well the hoops are all in place now, and there's some old dude knocking balls about on the course as we speak, so I'm guessing/hoping that we can use it from now onwards!
I fought the wall and the, wall won.

Bumpety bump, anyone interested in this...I'm assuming Alfie will be but would be good if we had multiple teams to increase the all ready amazingly high chances of a USMC team winning.
