Crake “Rock Clock” AC Tournament 17/18th Aug
Riggey travelled up the the Lake District to play in the Crake Valley Croquet Club’s August Advanced Tournament.
The work continues at Crake to bring the Lawns back into full use with the re-serviced drains now starting to have an effect, after Friday’s downpour I expected the event to be cancelled or at least notified of a late start, but not a bit of it. the ‘top’ courts were both dry and playable – great job CCC.
This Tournament was also notable, since it’s the last event the ‘Leaning Pavilion of Greenodd’ will be used. Over winter it’s due to be demolished & replaced with a ‘proper’ brick building fitted with both running water *and* electricity! For a club formed in 1897, will the new ‘hut’ last as long or have as much personality? Enter the event next year and find out!
Paul now is the only player to hold the Lake District Slate Cavendish Clock three times.
