I saw a recent article about The Big 3 but should be The big 4. Nine Wicket Nationals needs to be included. I, Matt Smith will play against the best next year....George Cochren or Ben Rothman.

This is exactly what we need on the croquet scene -- more player challenges. I'm assuming you are referring to my mention of a U.S. Triple Crown for croquet (GC Nationals, US Rules Nationals and AC US Nationals) from this article:

The only thing is I don't know if Quadruple Crown has the same ring to it. Still, I am a little surprised that so far we haven't seen more top-rated players come in and try to steal that title away. So far, Cochran and Smith still own the original American game.

Can we play on short grass? Where there is less chance of a good shot missing and balls roll straight?

Though it is long grass for 9W Nationals, I think we see some fairly long hit ins at this event. 2009 was a little rough because we had a lot of rain and the grass was really thick and slow. That one took a pretty good toll on the body. 2010 was faster and I had a lot more fun at that one (first hour of opening day was pretty soggy and that was a mess, but it improved quickly).
