2015 NYCC Tiger Cup (Club Championship)
Thirteen New York Croquet Club members braved the beautiful warm weather of late August (August 22 & 23) to compete in the 9th annual Club Championship playing for the coveted gilded Tiger Wicket. Lila “Tiger” Baitschova was a tough but lovable player, who I had the good fortune to know before she passed away around the inception of this Champoionship. I met her in 2004 and she astutely predicted that I would be the club's next championship flight level player. This series of the club championship was conceived by Doug Moore as a modified single elimination knockout with a plate which guarantees that all players get at least 3 games. It's a great event for all players. New and second flight players will gain a real tournament experience, even if they lose all their games. First flight players will be pitted against one another to see how they match up. And of course Championship Flight players will vie for the title of Club Champion.
