Croquet


Played croquet at the weekend. It’s a strange game. You get an extra shot if you hit someone elses ball so that just means that you aim to hit other people’s balls all the time for fun.

When you hit thier ball then you are allowed to move your ball next to theres and hit as hard as you can.

The problem with this tactic was that I lost most of the time.

Becky can write more here as I am bored.

And here is my in-depth analysis: First thing to notice is that all of the Flatland riders are different from the others, not suprisingly, and there’s no English ones and lots of German and Japanese ones.

Next thing, Kye Forte beat Corey Bohan in dirt, which is quite an achivement. He also appears in the Street list which is pretty good going. The only other people that appear in two lists are Morgan Wade, Ali Whitton and Dave Osato.

When I looked through the list I was very impressed with Sergio Layos – 3rd in street, 3rd on the mini ramp and 4th on dirt. Pretty good going. But….

Lunke Fink! Has anyone ever heard of Luke Fink? No. Well he is in the top 12 for everything except flatland. Amazing I think.
