The wait staff of JJ’s Grill on Dickson will take on the wait staff of Waffle House tomorrow night. That’s 7-9 p.m. and we’ll be on the field in the middle of the UA Walton Business College. That’s Wednesday, July 19, 2017.
The Refreshments Committee will supply a case of ice cold A&W Cream Soda. Anything else will be dutch-treat. UA buildings should be open if anyone needs to step inside to cool off or get a refreshing blast from an icy water fountain.
Why called “summer”? Because presumably they’re easier to hammer in during the wet (hah hah hah) warm weather. Winter wickets are bent steel; mind you, they’re heavier than WalMart-Target bent steel hoops but in theory they can be pounded in semi-frozen turf.
Hey, everyone, come out to Wilson Park, the north side where it’s nearly flat, at 10 a.m. Saturday, July 15, 2017, for a croquet match between Arsaga’s and Onyx.
The normal six-wicket, one-stake greensward will be staked out. Come early if you want to lend a hand, hold a tape measure, pound in wickets into the stony ground without bending the wires.
The espresso shops will be playing doubles, and best two of three games. If it goes past noon, when it’s just too hot, we’ll just total out the game that’s being played. How do you do that? Why check the rules — the stake is the 13th point so below that, tally the wickets made on each side. Noon sharp.
Equipment to drool over today?
The Dawson four-ball set from Australia.
A&W Cream Soda will be the beverage of choice, but we strongly recommend chasing that with lots of icy water.
