2006 Resort Invitational (7-Jun -- 11-Jun)
Final Results and Report -- Tremaine Arkley

DAYS 4 & 5

Reg Bamford beat Peter Landrebe in the finals of the 
10th annual Resort Invitational in Welches, Oregon to 
win the first place prize of $3,500.00. Peter took 
home $2,000.00. Mark McInerney beat David Maugham to 
take home $1,000.00 and David $500.00.

The tournament again maintained its high degree of 
quality competition in an atmosphere and setting that 
took care of the players and their guests with many 
comforts and amenities.

The Friday night pizza salad feed was followed with 
some serious Texas Hold Em (chips only) poker games in 
the Tarten's Inn. 

At the Saturday night Player's Dinner each player and 
their guest had an opportunity to talk about 
themselves or anything on their mind. As usual Reg 
read original limericks for each player and the Resort 
owners and staff. This has become a welcomed tradition 
from Reg that keeps us in stitches!

Yours truly, unable to stop collection croquet stuff, 
has all the original limericks for five years and is 
planning a book of limericks with a caricature by a 
well know PNW illustrator about each player roasted. 
This will be a modern Oregon version of a Crowther 
type book of well know international croquet players 
who have been at the Resort.
