2017 MCA AGM Notes

The meeting highlighted another record year for revenue and membership. Total membership reached 79 members in 2016 thanks to the re-working of the MCA agreement with the Mahaffie Farmstead on the annual Sunflower Wickets Benefit that now counts each of the players in the event as one-day license members.

CLEVELAND, MO -- The MCA has announced that Bill Berg has agreed to host the 2016 MCA Six-Ball Croquet Championship on Sunday, October 9, 2016 at the Cleveland Croquet Club.

2016 MCA AGM: USCA Rules for 2016

BELTON, MISSOURI -- The 2016 MCA Annual General Meeting was held at the Belton Wellness Center in Belton, Missouri on January 30, 2016 with a lunch sponsored by MCA partner Goodwin World Media LLC. Several topics were covered but the key story continues to be record-breaking growth in both membership and revenue for the MCA. Since launching the MCA Nine Wicket Series in 2013, the MCA has broken both membership and revenue records each year. For 2016, the MCA brought in $2493 in revenue which is up from $370 in 2012. On the membership side, the MCA had 43 members in 2016 versus nine in 2012.

September Madness

BELTON, MO -- The MCA capped its third season of the Nine Wicket Series with a wild weekend of play at Markey Park in Belton, Missouri. Dylan Goodwin took the Pro Championship with a 17-13 win over Greg Clouse in a hard-fought final, but with four divisions and the Six Ball Open Championship on Friday night there was plenty of hardware to go around.

Deborah Millican probably had the biggest weekend as she took the Six Ball Open Championship in an epic Friday night battle under the lights, then followed that with a 20-11 win in the Gold Championship over Bill Berg claiming both the Gold Shield and overall Gold Points race with 208 points on the season. Bill Berg was second in the Gold Points race with 193 points.
