Headlines from Pearl S. Duck Croquet Tournament

Congratulations to Jim Boswell, Mark Rooper and Allen Johnson, our first, second and third place winners of the Second Annual Pearl S. Buck Croquet Tournament.  
Jim Boswell hugs Pearl S. Buck Board President Gail Ratcliff after receiving his prize.
The winning team was from Boxley, also our official tournament sponsors, by a narrow margin. 

Team Boxley
Rivers Woodward took the prize for Most Improved Player.  Jim and Mary Johnson for Best Dressed Players.  They also had a stroke of luck when they won the 50/50 raffle, entitling them to 50 to the earnings from the tickets sold.  They generously donated their share back to the birthplace, however.

It's just one example of the generosity and good sportsmanship that made the day possible and that prevailed throughout.  More on that, tomorrow.

  1. Practically, METAS operates several commercial cesium clocks and has rolex replica uk collaborated with the Laboratoire Temps et Fréquence of the University of Neuchatel (previously known as Observatory of Neuchatel) for many years. All these, and also much greater, albeit in our case, quite replica watches sale irrelevant, efforts are made, as METAS is responsible for the dissemination of the official time in Switzerland. In watchmaking rolex replica country, that is quite a big deal, and goes to show the institute's involvement in scientific undertakings related to timekeeping. On a basic level to see a luxury watchmaker work with a government scientific organization or certify its rolex replica mechanical watches in this day and age is pretty cool. Another important distinction is that COSC is an independent, privately owned company that has no shareholders, meaning that, technically, no brand should be able to gain any influence within the rolex replica sale company, and it is audited and accredited by the Swiss service for rolex replica sale accreditation.
