We are looking forward to welcoming BRA members and friends to a fun, family day out, at our annual Queen’s Birthday Party. This year we are back at the same venue as last year where there is an adequate sized lawn to play croquet. There is a covered terrace, where we can sit in comfort to watch the game while waiting to play our turn. We are honored again this year with the presence of The President of the Swiss Croquet Association, Mr. Dave Underhill who organises us into teams and explains how this very British traditional game is played. No need to know how to play in order to participate in a team.

Parking: There are ample parking spaces available at site. Cost: CHF 10.- for BRA Members CHF 15.- for Non-Members Please pay cash on the day.

We are aware that some members have difficulty travelling long distances to attend a national event at a central location. Hence, we decided that it would be good for us to travel out into the heart of our different regions to enable more members to meet others from outside their region. We are aiming to start by holding an autumn lunch on Saturday the 24th October in Lugano in the Ticino. In the meantime, please pencil the date into your diary. More details will follow soon. 🙂
