A quick visit from a member of the New York Croquet Club in Central Park

Phil Cordingley played Jim Collins on Tuesday morning.  Luckily, it did not hail or snow! The sun came out to welcome our guest in perfect English tradition! Just missed a warm cup of tea.

Jim sent a very nice email to the committee and formally extended an invitation to our members to play on their NY green in Central Park. So if you ever are in NY, I will send you Jim’s email. ┬áJim says “I know our members would look very forward to “international” play”.

Swishing!

Dear members,

I had a brief demonstration in “swishing” the lawn which is necessary to do if you start playing at PH at 9am:

Get the yellow stick from the cupboard, extend it, but not too much, and sway the rod over the lawn in a gentle manner back and forth as if watering the lawn. Do cover the whole lawn, the process should not take more than 5 minutes.
