CROQUET: Sports for the over 50+ Crowd
The 2016 A-Z Blogging Challenge
My challenge for this year… I am planning to complete the A-Z Challenge this year by sharing an activity in which I still enjoy competing.
The Season: Spring/ Summer/ Fall
The Rules: Click Here
The Thrill: Thrill One- I love to play the version of CROQUET that is called Black Snake. Once the competitor completes the course, he can then go kill all the other competitors. (You might be catching a theme in my competitiveness. This is true. But once the sport is over, I am OK with going out for a meal with my former enemy!) Thrill Two- If you are able to hit another competitor’s ball, you can get two additional shots.
Full Disclosure: The ‘breaking’ of lawn ornaments and losing croquet balls inside of holes under patios can be a problem. You might want to make certain areas ‘out-of-bounds’ for play so that your lawn and the game will run more smoothly.
