Geocache Description:

Known as the “Rose Capital of Iowa,” State Center is a charming community that will host a flash mob or two in the morning, a potluck around noon, and a CITO event. After those events, and everyone runs off to grab the new caches, stop by the historic Rose Garden, for some Fun, fellowship, and food. The IGO will even serve up some pizza. (While supplies last)

Jim and Curt have teamed up again, and come up with another one of their silly events. Let's have a croquet tournament at the Rose Garden in State Center Iowa. The perfect chance for everyone to show off their "athletic"? skills. We will have 2 person teams, and play by the rules announced at the tournament. Heck, we may even have trophies for the top 3 teams. You can sign up for the tournament at the potluck event so we know how many teams to plan for. Don't feel like chasing a ball around the yard? We will also have an area where you can make duct tape roses. Don't want to make roses, just stop by and enjoy an afternoon in the Rose Garden, visiting with friends, and cheering on the tournament players.

We will meet at the posted Coordinates at 4:00pm with the games begining at 4:15 sharp or so.

Please let us know how many will be in your group, and if you are thinking about participating in the tournament so we can have a rough idea. But the official sign up sheet will be at the potluck.
