5th and 6th grade group C reports on yard games
On July 29th at 11:00 a.m. the 7&8 graders played croquet for yard games. They played south of the Minnesota West gym.
The object of croquet is to hit the ball through the wickets and be the first one back to the stake.
The instructor, Dave Walker, said it is played professionally around the world, and was an Olympic sport in 1900 and 1904, although it is typically a back yard sport.
