Croquet not Coal Fun Tournament – Please join us!
Time: Friday, August 30, from 1 to 4pm
Place: Denman Community School playing fields
To Register: call 250-335-1765 or email

Hi all - please consider this your invitation to join us on beautiful Denman Island for the 2nd Annual Croquet Not Coal Tournament, which this year will be a part of the 2013 Denman Sustainability Festival. It is a natural fit, since coal is among the least sustainable things to be found on our planet. We hope to build on the success of last year’s croquet-fest, which was full of friendly competition, fine local food and great prizes. It was also a fun way to celebrate the continuing volunteer work of many locals who are doing their utmost to prevent the proposed Compliance coal mine above Fanny Bay.

It is an easy walk up to the croquet pitch behind the community school, or we can arrange a pick-up if that is necessary. You might need to register early, since last year the main draw of 36 filled up quickly. There will be side games for late entries, or just come across to watch the action. Click here to check out the other fun and imaginative events during the Sustainablilty Festival week, including feasts, pub night, music, films and the great Blackberry Faire on Sunday.

See you at the tournament.
