The Quinte Crokinole Challenge

Thanks to Dave Brown and company for a great day of crokinole. The tournament was well organized and the complimentary lunch was delicious. The semi-finals were Justin Slater (of Kingston) over Nathan Walsh and Ray Beierling over Matt Brown. The Quinte convention was in effect for tie breaking in the head-to-head matches. Although slightly more complicated than the Wimbledon Rule, the Quinte Convention is extremely fair and eliminates the advantage of starting second.The finals were a repeat of…See More

Unusual arrangement of the molecules

At the last St. Jacobs Crokinole Club session on Mar 23, 2015 something very unusual happened. In the warmup at my table a disk ended up leaning on another disk. i.e. part of the disk was on another disc and the lower edge of the disk was on the board. No posts were involved. In my years of playing I had never seen this happen before. I have seen one disc on top of another many times but never a leaner like this.
