BICC members love to play when travelling! Recently BICC members Pat & Gayle Waters, Leigh & Jerry Selk, Bill & Jane Rowat, Toni Kemp, Richard Wright, Dave & Jane MacLaren stayed at the beautiful Bela Romao Croquet Club in Portugal. 

Leigh Selk reports: "The club has about 50 plus members. The members are mostly Brits, one Portuguese, a few Brazilians and Scandinavians.They play exclusively golf Croquet. There are two courts with a third going in at present. 

A tournament was set up for us. Great fun. All day doubles golf Croquet. Team Canada included ten BICC players and some Brits and we played the visiting Germans with others nationalities to make our opponent team. Jerry and I made it to the finals, losing by one point to the hot shot visiting German pair. They truly shot like Egyptians. Other days we had the courts to ourselves and played Association."  See the photo album on the Photo Album - Portugal page.
