Croquet week ending 22nd December This week saw us play the last games of 2018. Tuesday’s Golf Croquet had some close games. The winners of three games were Robin Pols, Jill Rubie and Libby Smart.
Our Christmas dinner was held at the Vandenberg Hotel. A lovely meal was provided before the presentations of trophies to our winners for the year.
The golf croquet winner of the most games won during the year for men was Bruce Field. The Aussie croquet winner of the most games won during the year for men was John Cole.
The golf croquet winner of the most games won during the year for ladies was Joan Littlejohn. The Aussie croquet winner of the most games won during the year for ladies was also Joan Littlejohn. Congratulations to all of the winners!
An ovation was given for our hard working President/Treasurer, Elvy Quirk who has given our club the best financial year on record and the most paying members since the club was formed by our late president Keith Croker.
Elvy thanked all of those members with roles who helped the club to function so well over the year.
Our last game of the year on Saturday, 22nd December had 24 participants due to several members going on holidays early.
There were only two winners of their three games namely John Cole and Barry White.
There was a short break over Christmas and New Year with games resumed as of Tuesday, 8th January. We welcome all new members in 2019.
On behalf of the Forbes Croquet Club we hope that everyone had a pleasant Christmas and wish all a prosperous New Year.
