I remember a special time with my second cousin Larry Stettner (he's my dad's cousin). He was staying at our house, but we went to two croquet lawns in San Francisco. The special time was when he took two hours to teach me all of his strategies to six wicket croquet. He also showed me some of the hardest (for me) shots I've ever seen! He played in the San Francisco Croquet Tournament but lost.
This experience was especially meaningful to me because now I love to play six wicket croquet, and it is more fun when you know good moves and strategies when your parents don't!
