This year we had have a frizzbee only tournament on July 28th. We will schedule a croquet only tournament in the next couple of weeks. This will take place at a new venue (Bob & Steph's farm just about a mile up the road). We will update the (frisbee) information below as soon as we schedule the croquet event.

Note that alternatives or adaptations to the annual game cause it to evolve and the following information may be adjusted for the games. Check back for updates, or sign up to our email list (menu above) for notification of updates as they occur over the next couple weeks.

This has been an endurance croquet game with a bit of swim competition in the past. This year it will be an endurance frizzbee game only, with swim competition optional. It comprises one or more loops, to be determined by participants. A minimum of one loop is mandatory to be part of the competition and to earn the coveted FreeKnock award :).

In general, the main loop starts at the Yurt and you play your way down to the swimming hole (bottom left pic below) and back. Contestants will toss a frissbee from flag to flag (possibly gathering stickers as proof of their arrival at each point, although we have yet to institute this). Once at the turnaround point the contestants will swim or wade across the swimming hole and ring the bell (optional), before returning to their frisbee. They will then return back across the causeway/pasture (top two pics below) from flag to flag, back to the Yurt.

The more loops, the bigger the prize!   More course information here.

Entry fee: this is a potluck so bring food to share as well as your own beverage.
      A BBQ will be provided. We will also have some tuna and burgers available from the grill but feel free to bring your own BBQ item to cook on the grill. Note that we will not use or provide plastic utensils but we may have sufficient metal utensils. Remember lawn chairs if desired.
      We will provide the crawdads (creek, bottom right pic below) ... but that does require you to catch them.

The 2018 date is now set. You can sign up here. Families welcome. Sign up is not required, but is suggested for planning purposes. Please note that the entire course, including the water traverse is suitable for small childern with a bit of supervision. There is one deep hole (generally up to 8 feet) so life jackets for active or adventurous children are encouraged.

For updates as they occur, sign up to our email list located here (only event specific emails) or check back at this site, or contact the race director at: tom@freeknock.org or use the 'Contact' link above. Updates will be posted to the site and sent by email.
