2015 BC championships

The BC tournament is perhaps the strongest crokinole championship outside of Ontario. (The Lewiston NY tournament is a special case since it is dominated by Ontario players) It is held annually in Oliver BC (in the Okanagan Valley) and now organized by ED and Darlene Ripley. This year it is on Saturday March 7. There is still time to enter. One can fly to either Vancouver (check the weather in the mountains) or Kelona (less risky weather wise.) and drive to Oliver. At least 2 players from…See More

WOW, my first tournament.

WOW.  It was a really fun time.  My first crokinole tournament.  Crokinole is definitely a fun game for the family, but gather these families for a competition and you have a party.  I was a little apprehensive about the day.  It turned out to be a fun learning experience.I learned a lot about the game of crokinole.  If I thought that my new board was fast, I was amazed by the speed of the tournament boards.  So many boards in one place.  The wax that I thought was unimportant, plays a vital…See More

"We play it that any strike is a good strike, so as long your opponent is stuck, it doesn't matter how. (Yes, you can hit your disc first) We play that only those discs involved in a missed shot are removed, not necessarily all your discs, so…"

Bruce Baldwin replied to Bruce Baldwin's discussion Valid shot rule.
"Thanks for the reply. I must be stupid but I am having a problem with the directly or indirectly part. Can I hit my disc first, as long as it hits my opponets disc, everything is ok. If I do not hit my opponets disc then all of my man that moved on…"

Jacob Westerhof replied to Bruce Baldwin's discussion Valid shot rule.
"Hi Bruce, When I read Rule 3, a "valid shot" indicates that you MUST strike an opposing man (either directly or indirectly) if there are any opponent discs on the board.  If you miss, then your disc is removed and any of your discs…"
