We are happy to announce the 2007 National Croquet Day dates of July 7th and November 10th. These dates have been selected to accommodate the many regions and hopefully weather differences across the U.S. and Canada.

The goal of National Croquet Day is to stage and plan events to encourage new players and members and thus strengthen our sport. See the results and pictures from the 2006 National Croquet Day.

We are contacting major croquet suppliers for donations of exciting prizes, including equipment, training tools and clothing. Prizes will be awarded for "Most Exposure for the Sport" and "Most Unique Event", so start the minds rolling and let's see just how creative we can be in developing ideas. Coverage of your events will appear in CROQUET NEWS.

The USCA offers plenty of promotional items, publicity and great ideas. You must register your club to participate. Contact Diane Weir at USCA@MSN.COM
or phone (561) 478-0769 to register and obtain promotional info. Or....visit the Members Only section of our web site for the entry form and additional info.
