    Has anyone taken part in any national and/or world competitions such as in games and sport? I myself am planning to take part in the national competition for cribbage. The only thing stopping me is that is the venue because I do not have my own transport.

    So, what about you lot? :p:

    I did a Gipf world championship once and came 12th. Surprised not see any one mention poker given its popularity on this site.

    I think it's a type of board game. I've never played it myself though, so don't take my word for it!

    and you ended up being a rower?

    I can't think of another sport where you require no flexibility whatsoever!

    Glad to see you still remember me and the fair game that is croquet
    Looks like you're getting active in loads of other sports as well.... any more croquet playing now, or is Aussieland in the depths of winter at the moment?
