Croquet week ending 21st July
A freezing cold wind attacked us on the courts on Tuesday, cutting the numbers down to a brave few.
We sorely missed Libby Smart who usually sets up the courts early in the morning, ready for the day’s competition. Get well soon Libby! At least people now know how much hard work you have done over the years. Winners of three games were Bob Murray, Kevin Rubie and Ken Styles.
In sub zero temperatures, thank you to Alec Todd, Brad Stewart, Anne Stewart, Harley Stewart and Bob Murray for getting out of a warm bed to have the courts ready for hit off at 9am. It makes us really appreciate Alec Todd and John Browne, who do this on a weekly basis regardless of the weather.
The only two winners on the day were John Cole and Bob Murray. A good effort by Kathleen Broderick, who won two games. It has been a while since Kath has been on the winners list.
