Canceled: 2019 Lee's Summit T-Bone Croquet Tournament

LEE'S SUMMIT, Mo.—Because heavy rains this week have caused poor court conditions, the MCA is canceling the 2019 Lee's Summit T-Bone Croquet Tournament.

Thank you to those who signed up as well as the MCA members who invited newer players to step up their game.
