Rocky Mountain International Open 2013


While our own Paul Billings did not win the tournament he was successful in creating a fun and exciting event for all. Players from coast to coast and south to north made for excellent play of the Sport of International Laws 6 wicket croquet. The weatherman even cooperated this year.


The Rocky Mountain International Open (RMIO) was won by David Maloof from Florida with Jim Butts from California taking second in a heart breaker. Jim had the game well in hand from the start until a full roll from five to six ended with the striker ball, spent ball and pivot all in perfect aliment blocking each other. Jim had to hit away leaving David a four inch roquet to take command of the game.


Big shout out to all the players and volunteers that made for a wonderful tournament.


1. David Maloof, FL

2. Jim Butts, CA

3. Leo Nikora,  CA & AK

4. Steve Mossberg,  WY

5. Paul Billings,  CO

The Lawn


A tremendous amount of work has been done on the lawn recently. A hat’s off to Steve Talkington and  all those doing the work and contributing in other ways. All the members I am sure salute you and thank you for making "The Lawn" a better place for Croquet and Lawn Bowling.


In making repairs certain areas of "The Lawn" had to have new sod laid in, expensive, to get repairs done yet this season. Let's all make a special effort to aid in the development of these areas. Don't use them unless absolutely necessary!


"The Lawn" has been relayed for Croquet. It is smaller but as was shown last Monday night plays well. Please use until the full lawn is open. The following will guide you setting up the court(s)


1. Start the string on the east side a little more than half way down Lop the string on the “Green Wheel”

2. Go straight west to the “Green Wheel”

3. Go to about the third marker on the South Boundary “Green Wheel”  

4. Now go straight North 48 feet to the Golf Tee (Be sure when you pick up to leave the tee for the next person)

5. Secure the string and go straight East to the next Golf Tee (Be sure when you pick up to leave the tee for the next person)

6. Secure the string and go straight North to the “Green Wheel”


You now have the boundary’s just pace off to locate wicket holes. It may sound complicated, but it’s not. And it will aid in getting the Lawn back in playing shape sooner.


Thanks to all for assisting in helping these areas quickly become once again part of the lawn.

2nd Annual “BUFFALO FEST”

Sunday, August 11, 2013 at 4:00 PM


9 wicket Croquet tournament will be followed with Buffalo burgers to finish the day for the Denver Croquet Club and invited guests. Sunday 11th August 2013 4:00 PM The “Committee”, recognizing a fun event when it hears of one has boldly stolen the format for this event from the “The Big Lobster ” and would have even gone so far as to serve lobster. However, our member, Sam, who is knowledgeable in these matters, has predicated a small lobster harvest in Denver this year. So we have opted to serve “Buffalo” burgers instead. Registration is a Suggested Donation of $20.00 to the Denver Croquet Club a registered Colorado 501(c) (3) not for profit.
