Crokinole Family Game Nights Begin……

Crokinole Family Game Night begins Tuesday Oct. 1st at the John W. Black Community Center in Buckner, KY. Times are 7:00 pm – 9:00 pm. Free Crokinole Lessons and Round Robin Play.  Drinks will be available for purchase.  Come out and enjoy a great night of Crokinole play.  Hope to see you there.

The “One Cheek” Rule

From time to time a player needs to flick a disc from one side of their quadrant or the other. This is where the “One Cheek” rule comes in to play.  Because you cannot move your chair, once the game begins, you can only move your rear end from one side of the chair to the other.  One ” cheek” of your rear end must remain on the chair, even if it is only part of that cheek.  The chair legs must remain on the floor, they must not lean the chair to get to the shot. So, the next time you go for that edge shot of your quadrant remember the “One Cheek” rule.
