    Tremaine was a participant in the first Canadian Open Croquet Championships (CroqCan) held at Harbourfront in Toronto in 1988.

    He hit his red croquet ball with such force that it landed in Lake Ontario, never to be seen again.

    Tremaine subsequently created the Red Ball Trophy, which is awarded to the “most unusual shot” at the annual CroqCans.

    The trophy is still active and and currently on display at the Toronto Cricket Skating and Curling Club.

    Would you like a digital picture of the trophy?
