First Croquet Coaching Pod at Bury
North West Fed members from Chester, Fylde and Bury met at Coronation Park for the first Croquet Coaching Pod, instigated by Ian Burridge and run by Matt Holmes. The subject for the first pod was “croquet shots you should have in your repertoire!” Tasks involved:
* rolling off hoop one from corner one;
* approaching hoop 2 from corner two with a subsequent rush to hoop 3;
* a corner cannon from corner 3 approaching hoop 3 and sending a pioneer down to hoop4;
* a penult peel sending the peelee down to rover;
* a final task was a jump/ drag shot to run rover whilst dragging through the “stuck” pelee.
Twelve members turned up. This was a well run session and grateful thanks go to Matt.
The next session is on Thursday 21st August and will cover the subject of openings
