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…Continue

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.

The BC open championships will be held Saturday March 16/13 Ontario players taking part are Clare Kuepfer and Joe Arnup. Joe will be playing with his sister Val (last year's recreational doubles winner) They should be one of the favorites in the open doubles. Good luck to the Ontario players!!
Local contenders will be Quin Erzinger (2011 champion), Adrian ?, and Julian Chambers (if he is playing). Young player Jordan Ripley might be a threat.
Every adult player will get…Continue
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/
Try this as a link to the NCA website
(okay, tried it in the preview and it works - for now)

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.
Okay, you've done Christmas, New Year's etc. Had a wonderful time with family and friends it is hoped. But now it's time to get back to 'reality' and your crokinole career.
The NCA website is down temporarily, so for those of you who don't like to print out those map details until the last minute. Or commit yourself to coming until the last minute. Fear Not! Here are the details.
The forecast for Saturday looks cold but clear, so welcome all to this opportunity to ice…Continue

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.…Continue

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…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
