CROKINOLE IN PETERBOROUGH IS BACK!!!

After a very tough year which saw the loss of both the Kawartha Crokinole Club and the Kawartha Bowl Tournament, crokinole in Peterborough is giving it one more shot with a slight twist on the club concept.

 

The Kawartha Knights Crokinole Team (really REALLY tried to download the logo!) is a slight variance in that its members are a team, not a club.  Membership is private (yet in no way exclusive, anyone interested may join) and the purpose is to develop each others skills…

Updates!!

Couple of things.

1.  The Belleville Tournament is fast approaching and I have not seen much chat on here about it in the last few days.  Who's in?  Who are the contenders?  Who might surprise or upset?  Let's show our support and get to Belleville!

George Cook

    I have some sad news to pass on to the crokinole community. On Tuesday of last week George Cook, a founder and member of the executive of the Toronto Crokinole Club, as well as one of the keenest supporters of the game coming from a crokinole clan of note,…

All is quiet on the Western Front,"but the natives are restless in the jungle"

Congratulations to all the winners of the 2011 WCC (the first major event on the 2011/2012 NCA tour).There were posssibly a few surprise upsets, along with the many predictible winners.

What now? are we in for a long drought from crokinole this summer? I would guess there will be the occasional mini match played at the cottage or at your home-before the NCA tour continues in the fall!…

2011 World Crokinole Championships

I think we did this last year too, and it got kind of interesting.

 

So, does anyone want to make any bold predictions for this year's tournament. Doubles? Singles? 20's? Intermediates? Cues? Top 4? Top 16?

New NCA Crokinole rules

On the NCA site new rules have been posted which have been approved unanimously by the NCA. These rules have been compiled by me with input from players such as Brian Cook, Eric Miltenberg, Derek Hale, Ray Beierling, Jason Beierling, Jon Conrad, Howard Martin, Nathan Walsh, Joe Fulop and others. This does not imply that each of these players agrees with each rule in the final result. The intent was to set out the rules as they currently are, together with some recent changes adopted by the…

Dedicated Crokinole Volunteer Passes Away - Dr. Bruce Halliday

I unfortunately have some bad news to report that Dr. Bruce Halliday passed away on January 1, 2011. I knew Dr. Halliday as an avid crokinole volunteer who served on the World Crokinole Championship Committee for several years. One of his most interesting crokinole accomplishments was getting World Championship tournament commemorated as part of the Canada Post pictorial cancels. (An article about that can be found on worldcrokinole.com, under the Media Resource Page.)

Unbeknownst to…

Saskatchewan, World Crokinole Championship 26th year!

Talk about hiding your crokinole board under a bushel basket. What can you do with those modest folks out West, you have to toot their own horn for them.

Why does everything about this game have to be such a mystery?

 

Merry Christmas to all.

Weather outside is frightful, but the Crokinole is just delightful

Is it true that, like snowflakes, no two discs are alike? ;^p Oh yeah, that old can of worms. Well, I just put that in because it evoked a winter theme. Actually I get the feeling that the old croke board sees more activity in the winter, especially the favoured 'family fracus' over Christmas, than it does at the cottage on a rainy day? Not so?

Anyway here is a nice piece on a hotly contested tournament that apparently takes place yearly running up to Christmas time for charity at CTV…

Eric's New Board

Eric Miltenburg made a new board. I played on it last night. It was fun. There was one small problem that will be hard to fix, it is easier to get twentys.

Dragon's Den Pitch

For all those Dragon's Den enthusiasts, Wednesday someone will try for cash to promote his checker-pool game...looks like an old carrom/crokinole board from the pitch commercial. Check it out.

A crokinole story

On Wed Oct 6, 2010 I was passing through Detroit Michigan on my way to Lexington KY. I missed a turn and ended up lost in Detroit. While trying to find my way back onto I 75 south I found myself following a tractor-trailer through some side streets. Suddenly I noticed on the back of the truck the "World Crokinole Logo" in colour about .4 meters square.It also said "Tavistock, 1st Saturday in May. I was quite surprised and have no idea why this truck had the logo on it. If you are the driver or… Continue
