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 shot, win that match, hoist that trophy, snatch those winnings and humbly accept the…
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…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.
Check out this March 18 Global New feature:…Continue

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 forecast for Saturday looks cold but clear, so welcome all to this opportunity to ice…Continue

Golden Horseshoe Tournament ready to roll tomorrow. We still have room for a few more if you just realized there's no hockey tomorrow or NFL football, or you just got informed the wedding is off ;^) See details in the Golden Horseshoe post below.
May the Flick be with you.

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,…Continue

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.

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?
