6th Annual Mondo Croquet World Championships

Croquet, American Style with bowling balls and sledgehammers. You'll never play euro-croquet again after you feel the surge of pure pleasure that comes from socking a giant ball around with a five-pound sledge.

British whites or appropriately inappropriate dress recommended.

I think tea and cake should be made available. Will somone please take appropriate steps to make this happen? Most important is that people look silly and have a good time. Has that ever not happened to me?
