Alice in Wonderland may have found it tricky playing with flamingos but she would have had to keep her head if she had wanted to play ‘Snake in the Grass’ croquet. We held our 3rd annual ‘Snake in the Grass doubles tournament last Saturday, September 21st.
Rolf and KC organized an outstanding tourney and the sun shone brightly on the 14 players trying to outwit their opponents with strategy, tactics and skill.
Elle, the ‘dark horse novice’ and her partner, ‘never-say-lose’ Rolf played in a ruthlessly efficient manner and won the coveted ‘Snake in the Grass’ trophy. see results
Ralph and Justin scooped up 2nd place and Wendy and Peter thrashed it out for 3rd
Justin (The Snake)
thought that costumes would bring victory, but discovered it wasn’t necessarily the case.
The yummy potluck lunch made the games in the afternoon a little soporific, but the adrenaline kicked in and balls were soon being whacked in all directions.
Everyone agreed that it was a great way to spend a sunny September Saturday.
