The name is quizzical to the unfamiliar, but makes perfect sense to those in the know. Brook Lane Health Services hosted its eighth annual Scoops and Wickets event Saturday at the hospital's Leitersburg-Smithsburg Road campus near Leitersburg. “Scoops is for ice cream and wickets is for croquet,” said Kay Hoffman, the hospital's director of development. Hoffman said the hospital conceived of the event as a family fun day, and figured ice cream and competitive croquet would do the trick.

Lawn games barely register a pulse in the United States, overshadowed by more physical sports. But beneath the surface of those who enjoy such pastimes lies the competitive soul of a strategist. Take Ryan West, for example. He had never played croquet until Saturday, when he attended a fundraising event at Brook Lane. But within minutes, he was attacking the course like a pro. "I'm a quick learner," the Hagerstown man said. "Plus, I like to win. " Croquet was one of the featured activities at the sixth annual Scoops & Wickets, a fundraising event hosted by Brook Lane, which provides services for individuals with emotional and behavioral health concerns.

gregs@herald-mail.com SHARPSBURG - Colton Duvall, 9, and his sister, Madison, gazed at the ancient items on the shelves of the replica general store. A butter churn, a pot-bellied stove, bottles with strange labels and a telephone with a crank on one side adorned the floor, shelves and walls. "I like the shop because it has cool toys and stuff," said Madison Duvall, 7. There were no computers or Bratz dolls in the store. And there weren't any Legos - one of Colton's favorites - but the two children were intrigued by the displays at the Rural Heritage Museum.

LEITERSBURG - Dressed in a prim shift and a floppy brimmed hat of traditional croquet white, Vikki Nelson assumed her championship stance and took direction from Art Callaham. "Lay away from the wicket," Callaham said as Nelson swung her mallet and sent her ball scampering through the green. Nelson and Callaham were among a streaming crowd of people who crossed the brook and stepped into the sunny rolling meadows amid singing birds for a polite game of croquet Saturday at Scoops & Wickets, an ice cream and croquet social at Brook Lane.

LEITERSBURG - Money raised from this weekend's Scoops & Wickets event at Brook Lane will be earmarked for a gymnasium on the campus. "We have space for gym activities now, but they are split between two small sites," said Curt Miller, spokesman for the hospital complex. In the barn, there is a small gymnasium in a recreational area, Miller said. There are mats and one basketball hoop for limited sports activities. In the lower level of the Laurel Hall school building, a large space is available for indoor sports when the weather is bad. "But we have had to carve some of that space up for classrooms," Miller said.
