Croquet week ending 27th October
Tuesday’s golf croquet was near a record of participants on the courts, with 32 players in attendance over six courts and four following on.
The two new courts were slow after top dressing and mowing. It’s hard to believe that we still had follow-on’s due to the large amount of players on the courts. Two of the closest games on the day were Neville Spry and Kathleen Broderick with seven against Jill Rubie and Tony Thomson with six. The second game was between Lorraine Todd and Merv Langfield with seven defeating Carol Slattery and Bob Murray with six.
There were only three winners of their three games on the day. They were John H. Browne, Joan Littlejohn and Libby Smart. Saturday’s Aussie croquet had 30 participants with all of the courts being used. The winners of three games were John Cole, Bruce Field, Merv Langfield, Bob Murray and Kevin Rubie.
Our next birthday lunch date will be Tuesday, 13th November at the Vandenberg. Don’t forget to put your names on the list.
