I am running a contest again this year. E-mail me your complete order of finish. One entry per person. The winner will receive a couple of jars of jam, maybe Santa Rosa Plum and Marionberry, from our farm, and a croquet print from our croquet art collection.

1999 David Openshaw was the winner and John Taves the runner-up.
1998 Chris Clark was the winner and Robert Fulford the runner-up.
1997 Jerry Stark was the winner with Toby Garrison the runner-up.

Good luck!
