Croquet Field Day! 

Raising awareness and funding for future expansion of emergency medicine services at Olmsted Medical Center.

The CFD! tournament welcomes novice and experienced amateur players. All teams play for non-cash prizes. The team entry fee admits two players to the pre-tournament brunch, registers them as an event team, and includes player gifts.

The annual Croquet Field Day (CFD)! is a unique event held to support and benefit emergency medicine services at Olmsted Medical Center.

Unfortunately, we were not able to host our 2020 Croquet Field Day! as we felt we would not be able to provide a safe event due to COVID-19.  We now look forward to again providing a great outing you’ve come to expect from OMC Regional Foundation while we make some accommodations given the COVID-19 pandemic environment we are experiencing.  We will adjust our format, schedule, and logistics for the event as needed.  We trust that you understand our need to incorporate additional hygiene and cleaning as well as social distancing as we follow any state mandates that may be in place.  As a healthcare organization, OMC and OMC Regional Foundation care about your health and wellbeing.

Players of all ages and abilities are welcome to participate. Use of regulation tournament-grade croquet equipment, including mallets, wickets (hoops), balls, and stakes, are included in the $150 team entry fee.
