Scenes From The 2013 St. John’s College vs. The USNA Croquet Match • Published On April 11th 2014

Annapolis Events

Tomorrow is the 32nd annual St. John’s College vs the United States Naval Academy Croquet Match which as always is being held on the campus of St. John’s College here in Annapolis Maryland. As I was sitting at my desk pondering whether I would be attending it sporting the lighter weight seersucker look or the more traditional Brooks Brothers attire of years ago I stopped in mid thought attempting to remember what photographs that I had posted of last year’s event. Quickly I began to rummage through my files and realized that nothing had been put on the blog from last year’s match. It seems that I had taken a fair number of pictures but for the life of me I have forgotten why I never posted any of them.

So my forgetfulness aside here now are half a dozen images from the group that I took at the 2013 croquet match to kind of set one’s expectations for tomorrow’s event.

I apologize for not having posted these photographs before now but I would like to think that they will put you in the mood to attend tomorrow’s croquet match.

Hope to see on the lawn then at St. John’s,
