Welcome to Jim Farris from Kentucky. Make sure Jim, that you introduce yourself to us at Tavistock.
Is anyone else coming from a long distance?
I will make the first predictions.
One of Jason Beierling, Brian Cook, or Justin Slater will win the open singles.
Other contenders: Ray Beierling, Jon Conrad, Eric Miltenberg, Paul Brubaker
Long-shot: Joe Arnup
Paul was able to accumulate extra points in the last two matches of the 2011-2012 season to take away the title from Jon (last years champ). It was a close race to the finish, with the out-come determined after the final match.
Players have to participate in a minimum of nine out of…Continue

Brian Cook and Fred Slater won the day in BC today. They took the doubles title and were 1-2 in the singles, with Brian Cook winning the championship.
Check out the "crokinole" reference in the video below "The Family That Dwelt Apart"---hint its at 3:17. This is from 1937.

I was just handed the Feb./Mar. issue and read the crokinole article by Murray and Sue Skaling of N.S. They produce quality boards. Check them out at www.muzzies.ca

May the Flick be with you.

Taken from the legal page of a Nova Scotia newspaper.
There were eight family relations calls. One involved an 87-year-old mother who couldn't be roused one morning. EHS determined she had been assaulted the previous evening by a crokinole board. Apparently her son, who had been drinking, lost three straight games and then hit the mother on the head. He was arrested and police are investigating.

Draft – for Discussion The Wimbledon Rule Version 2
Purpose: to eliminate the advantage of shooting last in the 5th round of the final game of a match. The idea is that a player would have to win by 2 wins or by a tie and a win. So 8-4, 7- 5, 9-7, 10-6 etc. are winning scores. At 6-4, 8-6, 10-8 etc. play goes on. Applying the rule to the last game of a playoff accomplishes my goal, however it could be used in each game of a playoff. It's use…Continue
I prefer just playing to 100 than the tournament style. It's a better game, and could be used for the final instead of 2 points for a round win.
