Leo Nikora lives and plays croquet at Mission Hills in Southern California, the second-largest playing venue in the United States. He's also the admirably diligent webmaster of the USCA's official website. He and other members of the American contingent promised to send some reports. We didn't expect a report in this form, but we're happy to share it.
