Victoria Day Crokinole

Looking for some more practice before the World Championships? Looking to compete with the best players from Canada?

Look no further than some crokinole in Hamilton on Victoria Day, as Ontario welcomes one of the best players from British Columbia for the Quin Erzinger Classic Crokinole Tournament. (The event title was my idea.)

Tournament details and information can be found in the attachment.

Looking forward to seeing you there!…

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. In a later round of play I was called over to another board to observe a second…

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…

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…

Crokinole, Croquinole everywhere.....

Don't you have those moments when something becomes relevant to you, they seem to pop up everywhere.  If someone you knows buys a red pickup, every other vehicle on the road is a red pickup.  When, a friend mentions a particular app for their phone, you start to notice that all your acquaintances are using that app.

Well the same seems to have happened to me.   Just before Christmas, I got this inspiration to have a family crokinole board, so I put one on my list and let my…

Golden Horseshoe Tournament, Saturday January 31st.

Holidays are over, time to see how the prowess you showed at family gatherings can stack up against the rest of the Crokinole Community. Did you make any New Year's resolutions? I'm guessing at the top of the list you promise yourself that this year - yes, THIS YEAR, you will make that…

Crokinole alive across Canada

Over the last several months, I got interested in Crokinole again.  Having grown up with a board in the house, it was a fun game between family members and crossed generational gaps with games with grandparents happening at all special occasions.  My brother and I are into any games where we can complete, so we played crokinole, mastermind, monopoly, shuffleboard and many other games endlessly.

The game of crokinole is simple enough to allow anybody to play and spectators…
