Aust Croquet Company contact

Dear Roger,

I suggest you write - snail mail.

Cheers,

Australian Croquet Company

 

Hi Everyone,

I have been trying to contact the Australian Croquet Company for the
past couple of weeks but they are not answering e-mails and their 'phone
seems to be continually engaged.

Are they still in business (I understand that they were trying to sell
the business - but their web site is still up) or is there some other
problem?

We are looking to purchase another set of international balls and a
couple of sets of hoops.

Regards
Roger

Re: VCA - GC Bronze Medal

 

The matches column, and summary page, are now correct for blocks with
withdrawn players. Sorry for the inconvenience.

In other words http://www.croquetscores.com/2013/gc/vca-bronze-medal/blockis
now correct.

Eagle eye Peter Freer has picked up that croquetscores.com is
incorrectly reporting the number of matches for VCA - GC Bronze Medal.
Greg Freeman has withdrawn from the event and wins against him are
still included in the matches column.

I will advise when I've corrected the error. Probably Sunday morning
AEST, maybe this afternoon.

Re: GC RULING

Jan Sage
 

Hi Pam,

This is a non-striking fault - Rule 12 (a).

I would be surprised if the ball did not move with the first contact between the mallet and the hoop.

The usual actions following a non-striking fault apply - Rule 12 (c).

GC RULING

Pamela Owen <sweetpkev@...>
 

Please help as I cannot find anything in the GC Rules covering this
situation.

The strikers ball is resting against the hoop; the striker attempts to
strike the ball by passing the mallet through the hoop, misses the ball
completely and hits the hoop. The striker repeats the play and again
misses the ball and hits the hoop. This time the vibration of the wire
moves the ball -- improves the ball's position. At no time in either
attempt has the mallet made contact with the ball.

Should the ball be replaced? Has a fault been committed? How many times
can the striker attempt the shot?

Pam Owen

Thanks Arthur and Max for your valuable suggestions.
I've decided at this stage to go with the standard graphite shaft until such time as I find someone with the fibre shaft and try it out.

Thanks

G'day All,

An earlier email advised that a croquet segment was to be televised tomorrow morning on Foxtel V. Can anyone please advise what Austar channel number is the equivalent to Foxtel V.

Many thanks,

Re: Fenwick Elliott Mallet

Max Murray
 

Hello All

To describe the shaft as "flexible " is a big step from what I am envisaging. My John Woods mallet does have a degree of give in the shaft and is certainly not stiff and solid. It is the lack of stiffness that I find useful and helpful.

Max Murray

Hello Wal

My views are opposite to those given by Arthur.

I am short and need all the help i can get when playing a shot to go any distance (like across court) . I have a John Woods mallet and chose the design which gives me some whip in the shot i.e not rigid. I find that most useful and helps me a lot.

It's really up to you to decide and to do this I suggest you get two different mallets and try and sort out what suits your game best. If you are in Adelaide, Fenwick Elliot should be able to allow to try out both versions which i think you should do before you buy.
I agree - you should try both.

But, having said that, I've not seen many low handicap players using a flexible shaft.

Also, I'm not sure about the whip being better than a stiff shaft for length across the court.

Some of the force generated by the mallet head must get dissipated in a whippy shaft - whereas in a stiff shaft more of the force generated by the mallet moving forward is be transmitted to the ball.


Sorry if this confuses the issue. As regards length I am not sure that Fenwick Elliot mallet handles can be just cut down in length.
They can, I've done it - a simple fine hack saw does the job.

Hi Wal,

Stick with the standard graphite shaft - the soft fibreglass shaft will be too sloppy and you would notice the difference immediately - your accuracy will suffer and your hands will curse you.

Another thing to consider is that if you are tall(ish), consider getting a longer handle - depends on your grip.

At my club the six foot men using the Solomon Grip seem to prefer a 40 inch handle.

If you find it too long, you can always move your grip down a bit or easily cut off some of the length.

I would be interested in anyone's experiences or suggestions.
