MCA President Interview on USCA 9W Site

The USCA 9-Wicket Croquet website has posted part one of a two-part interview with MCA President Dylan Goodwin. You can read part one here: 


2014 USCA 9W Nationals: September 19-21

PARKVILLE, MO -- USCA Midwest Regional VP Matt Griffith reported this week that the Kansas City metro area will host the 2014 Nine-Wicket National Championships. The dates are set for September 19-21 and the event will likely follow a format utilized in the National Championships held in the area from 2008-2011. Griffith indicated that the venue location has not yet been finalized.


MCA To Follow 2007 Edition 9W Rules

MCA players may have noted that the USCA updated the nine-wicket rulebook in mid-season. For consistency, the MCA will continue with the 2007 edition rules as played in the three previous events through the end of the 2013 season.

The new revisions made by the USCA will be evaluated by the board during the winter and a decision will be made as to whether or not we will follow the USCA's update or create a set of MCA Nine-Wicket Rules.

Troy White: 1963-2013

White at 9W Nationals in 2010Troy White of Rockville, Missouri, passed away April 23, 2013. He was 49 years old. Troy lived in Rockville, Missouri most of his life. During his life, he worked for JLS Coal Company and also Wilson Plumbing. Troy loved the small town life and especially enjoyed being outdoors. Some of his favorite outdoor passions were deer hunting and mushroom hunting, but his favorite passion was playing croquet. Troy started playing nine-wicket cutthroat croquet in the early 1980’s and started playing in tournaments around this same time.

In the mid-1990’s, Troy won several tournaments over a four-year period and became known as the man to beat in Kansas City. Around 2009, Troy joined the USCA and played in the annual Nine-Wicket USCA National Championship tournament held in Kansas City. Most of all, Troy enjoyed playing nine-wicket cutthroat in someone’s backyard where there were small hills and valleys to present an extra challenge.
