Two Mondo Croquet Events on Father’s Day!

Father’s Day, June 21st, 2015 we have two Mondo Croquet events!

1pm – 6pm

We will be picnicking in delightful Victorian style. Dressing in fetching Victorian attire in the hue of your favorite rose is highly recommend, but never required. If Victorian resplendence isn’t your forte then wearing black to be counted as a thorn is a worthy alternative. 

Please bring a scrumptious offering to share, as well as cameras to capture the blooming roses and thorns of all types. Victorian parlor games will begin at 3:00.

We will be meeting on the Southeast corner of the park (Corner of N. Ainsworth & N. Albina). Please be aware this is not one of the picnic areas. You may want to pack a blanket to recline in the shade, or a chair as no picnic tables are available.

More info: https://www.facebook.com/events/1620865454810764/

3pm – 7pm

Oaks Park, Portland – the grassy area between the amusement park and the river. It’s for a big birthday party that includes the Steampunk crowd and other Krazee costumed kids, so it should be a good time!

Mondo Croquet at Summer Lake Hot Springs

Let’s just say…

 

Sure, Burning Man is fun, but what if you want to go out to the desert and relax?  That’s where Summer Lake Hot Springs comes in.  It’s about half-way from Portland to Gerlach.  It’s inexpensive to stay, read some books, sit in the hot water and goof off.  And many people on their way to or from Burning Man stop here for a rest.  So, held some Mondo Croquet games.

Fun!

And a Fine Time Was Had By All…

16 Years of Mondo Croquet…

 

This was the first year the park officials noticed us.  They strongly suggested that next year we obtain a permit.  Hey, it’s only $1,000 to have them review the permit application!  Sure, we’ll get right on that.

We had plenty of fun anyway.  Two games running concurrently until 6pm.  Jolly Good!

Click here to enjoy the photos.

Click here if you have some you’d like to contribute to our photo archive.

We got a nice write-up on the Portland Sports blog here: http://www.portlandsports.com/rec-sports/16th-annual-mondo-croquet-mad-hatter-picnic/

And another on PDX Pipeline: http://pdxpipeline.com/2013/07/24/portland-mondo-croquet-mad-hatter-picnic-pictures-2/

Stay tuned!  More fun to come!
