"The 27th Annual Annapolis Cup-a croquet match between St. John's College and the U.S. Naval Academy—promises superb intercollegiate competition and a festive lawn party where watching the spectators is as much as the croquet. It's also a bargain for the families and community members who attend. The event is free. Spectators dress in styles reminiscent of "The Great Gatsby," bring champagne picnics, dance to music, and watch the match unfold. It's good old-fashioned free fun."

That is right, my Saturday will be spent watching the Midshipmen take on St. Johnnies in a competitive Croquet Tournament. As of right now, I have finalized my outfit to two front runners. Which one do you like best? Vote on this post!
So, as I do need to freshen up on the rules of Croquet, I thought I would do so, with some of my favorite pictures:
Alice in Wonderland...my introduction to croquet.
I swear I thought they actually used flamingos as a little girl.
That did not go over very well with me.
History of Croquet:
Amanda Seyfield in Vogue...
after she starred in Alice in Wonderland
The infamous Chuck Bass
