Wonderellas tenure as publisher of the magazine

group petitioned forand was grantedchapterhood
in the O.M.C.
At the peak of O.M.C. Berkeleys antics, publisher
Clint Marsh printed two issues of the shortlived, ill-fated

Egret was printed letter size, or 8.5 x 11 inches.

note that the information presented in Victorious Egret
is dreadfully out of date.
Egret No.1, for February 1999: In
addition to listing croquet events from around the Bay
Area, the inaugural issue of VE posed a postal puzzler,
offered advice on reducing junk mail, presented a delicious
garbanzo bean salad, and reprinted the rules for Lewis
Carrolls boardgame Lanrick.
Egret No.2, for March 1999: Before
its mysterious disappearance, VE recounted the goings-on
at the Wonderella Tiki Party, previewed the lost
issue of Phooka, solved the postal puzzler, and gave even
more information about Bay Area croquet. What larks!
