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 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:…

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…

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?

Well from the media reports it seems to have been a great success with 64 partcipants and ..... well, you can read it for yourself by following the link below:…

Golden Horseshoe Tournament in Hamilton booked to capacity.





A little Crokinole History about Hamilton. Two things you should know. Nature mimics Crokinole: The biggest centre pocket on earth is situated on the eastern edge of Hamilton, You can find it if you follow Hwy# 20 as it plunges down the Escarpment toward Lake Ontario. (It's true, I didn't photoshop the highway sign) And that trickle of water you can just barely see, those my friend, are known as… Continue
