Stanley Caulkins and Ron Rogos along with host Jim Gable award Stanley's Cup to the Karen Russell and her team ECHO/United Nations

The 5th Annual Sticky Wicket Croquet Tournament and Lawn Party was a success on May 17, 2014.  The weather and venue were perfect for the more than 100 participants who enjoyed the afternoon on the lawn of Jim Gable and Kelly's home.

The party had an international flavor. Colorful tents were filled with food, drinks, decor and costumed teams from around the world.  The day included croquet on three courts, an auction, the crowning of the Rotary Croquet Princess (our youth exchange student Gemy Chavez), and activities for youth and adults.  Heritage High School Interact students managed the children's activities and several participated in croquet.

Stanley's Cup was awarded to the winning team by Stanley Caulkins and Master of Ceremonies Ron Rogos. The winner was ECHO/United Nations, with Karen Russell as team captain. The Cup is named after Stanley Caulkins, who has the record for being in the Rotary Club the longest. The proceeds went to the Foundation to fund charities and other community and international needs.
