Victoria Day Association Tournament
May 19 – 21, 2018
Canadian National Association Croquet championships, the CroqCan AC, will be hosted by the two croquet clubs in Victoria, BC, August 9-12. We have three lawns and may expand if demand is great enough. Details will follow as soon as they’re worked out, but for now we can tell you this:
- We’ll have a second flight if warranted.
- We’ll keep costs as low as we can (the previous CroqCan in Victoria was held at a venue that was very expensive, so entry prices were higher than desirable).
- The three primary courts are in downtown Victoria, in easy walking distance to good accommodations, dining, and entertainment, if you have enough energy . . .
- Average August temperatures in Victoria are in the mid-20s C during the day (mid-70s F), and the chance of significant rain is low.

Congratulations to Donna and Keir, Top Gun Vipers, on their first place win in the Snake in the Grass tournament. Of mention, Keir also had a deuce.
