Golden Horseshoe Crokinole V, This Saturday January 25th, Hamilton.

Final call for the Golden Horseshoe Tournament in Hamilton this weekend.  Looks like there will be a decent turnout for this year's tourney. Will last year's winner, Ray Beierling, return to defend his title and further his chances after wins in Lewiston and Brucefield or will the various other winners, a different one in all the other events, make it a pair to catch up with…

WCC predictions

Yes, predictions are fun. I agree completely with the top 5 players mentioned by Nathan. The final four will probably come from these 5. It is possible for others to play well and beat one of them but it is very difficult to beat enough of them to win. I predict Justin and Brian will be the finalists.

Dark horses have been mentioned and I will add to the list. I don't know if these players are coming to Tavistock but the BC players Quin Erzinger and Julian Chalmers should qualify in…

Crokinole on Global Willard's workshop.

For those of you who have seen 'Crokinole: The Movie' which recounted personalities and events leading up to the 2004 World Crokinole Championships. You have a pretty vivid idea of what goes on in Willard Martin's workshop. Has fame changed 'the name that launched a thousand boards', since then? Nope.

Check out this March 18 Global New feature:…

Every adult player will get…

Crokinole on CBC

On Friday, March 1, 2013 Crokinole was talked about on the program "Living out loud" as an example of things starting with the letter "C". The story of Jamie McDonald's participation in the recreational division of the WCC was told. One can listen to the program on the CBC website.  http://www.cbc.ca/livingoutloud/

PEI Tournament

Disappointing news from PEI as it was announced that the provincial tournament will not be accepting registrations from outside PEI this year.

I had an amazing time at the tournament one year ago, and PEI has a crokinole atmosphere that I think everyone should experience. Hopefully they'll allow outside registrations in the years to come.

Tie-breaking rules

Brian cook once expressed the opinion that he thought all ties should be broken by arm wrestling. That was before he met Val Arnup, winner of the recreational doubles in the 2012 BC championships.
