Years before the movie "Heathers" ever came out, our extended family would get together for a family reunion, and we would always play croquet. It was quite fun. There was always the one Uncle who took it way too seriously and delighted in whacking someone else's ball out into the boonies. Most of us were good-natured about it all, at least as good-natured as you can be in a family of competitive players! So,I say any time you want to reunite, grab the croquet set for some easy fun.
