Board battle

Stratford Gazette

Hundreds of competitors packed into the Tavistock and District Recreation Centre on Saturday, June 1 for the 15th annual World Crokinole Championship.

The popular tournament drew players of all ages from as far away as Saskatchewan, PEI, Michigan, New York, Ohio, and Connecticut.

The day's big winner was John Conrad of Milverton, who repeated as adult singles champion, defending his 2012 title.

The earliest known crokinole board to date was built by Eckhardt Wettlaufer of Sebastopol, Ont. (near Tavistock) as a fifth birthday gift for his son, Adam.
