Hey All,

I got my GF a croquet set for her birthday.  It got me thinking.  Has anybody ever done Rev Croquet?  I think it could be a cool addition to Rev games.  Any thoughts?  Everyone would start at the same point and would have one jump to get through/to the next hoop.  For hoops I was thinking a banner with a tail hoop.  I remember Dean Jordan made a banner about 20 years ago that had a big hole in it and the idea was to fly a dyal likr through th loop and do 3 movements from expert precision. 
Any thoughts?

patrick- 20 years ago? you were what 5 years old? ;P

i remember seeing a hoop that someone made like a big hula hoop...banner was before my flying time though....

Art St. Pierre has been known to do lots of funky things like the croquet idea....
i would start off with a rubber playground ball...should roll easily and not need a huge input to get it moving.....


Kites kayaks & corgis again!!!

I never thought about an actual ball.  There are there huger 4' rubber balls.  Although I do believe that a full game could take a LOOOOOOONG time. 

ps. I was 10.
