May Be the Worlds Largest Croquet Set
Look closely in the distance of the above photo and you will see the 'colored stations' of the 'Croquet' set that has been created for the Toutle River RV Resort. There is a large open field area near the entry to the RV Resort and early on it was the inspiration of "the Charlie" (developer) to build a Croquet set and while they were at it to build one that may well be the largest set in the World. The two Park Carpenters, Ron and Dennis created the set while Ray and a helper handled the painting.
Since arriving here in the park last April we have seen a number of people enjoying the game. You will see in the following pictures the mallets which in and of themselves are a work of art and very colorful. The balls that are used are actually soccer balls.
The large building undergoing remodeling that you see in the background of the pictures will become a very large open air pavilion for rent and use by quests and perhaps large RV Rallies that are sure to frequent this beautiful area of Washington.
Anyone for a game of 'Croquet' ? I will spot you two swings!
