2008 National Croquet Day Announcement

25 April 2008
United States Croquet Association, West Palm Beach, Florida, USA
by Ron and Genie Hendry (760) 832-7681, National Croquet Day Co-Chairs

We are excited about again Co-Chairing the 2008 National Croquet Day event. Just like last year, we have selected two dates to spread out the opportunities across the U.S. and Canada to conduct your events … Saturday, July 5th OR Saturday, November 8th.

Goal

This year we are looking for events that will encourage NEW players to enter the sport of croquet and join the USCA. You can choose any form of croquet you wish for your event — one ball, golf croquet, singles or doubles, American or Association rules, or nine wicket.

Prizes

We are planning some great prizes, such as equipment, training tools and clothing. Prizes will be awarded for creativity, exposure, uniqueness and demonstrating the true spirit of croquet. All winning entries will receive publicity in Croquet News magazine and our Croquet America web site.

Publicity

There are many ways to spread the word about your event — your local newspaper, radio or tv stations, e-mail, snail mail, and the personal invite. The USCA has some promotional items available. Contact Shereen at (561) 478-0760 or e-mail: usca@msn.com. Check our Croquet America web site for ideas and previous winners & their events. There are two excellent introductory video clips now available via the web.

Registration

To participate, register your club by mailing in the Click to Open entry form to the USCA, fax it to 561-686-5507, or call Shereen at the number above. All entries need to be submitted with documentation by 12/31/08 to be included in the 2008 competition. Be sure to enclose all your pre-event publicity, flyers, and please document your event with photos.

So, let the games begin! Remember we need photos to get a true feel for the activities surrounding your event. Just submit them with our post-event write up. We need to SEE, as well as READ, about all the exciting way you spread the word about our sport of croquet. Let’s make 2008 the BEST National Croquet Day events ever!

Enjoy and Happy Croquet!
