Week ending 27th January
It’s almost the end of the first month of 2018 and what a shocker weather wise it’s been.
Yet, the intrepid members of the Forbes Croquet Club soldier on twice each week.
Such is our dedication to this gentle sport.
A warm welcome to Zandra Blake, who was part of the winning team on Tuesday and gained two wins.
Congratulations to Ken Styles, Libby Smart, Robin Pols and John H. Browne (not to be confused with John Brown) for winning all three games.
Saturday was interesting with searing heat tempered by a warm wind ending the morning with black clouds and an eerie stillness as a thunderstorm rolled in. Thankful for the resulting rain.
We were visited by Anne and Harley Stewarts’ nephew Paul, his wife Jenna and their son Hayden who came along as spectators for one game before leaving for Canberra.
Clean sweepers on the day were Bob Murray, Elvy Quirk, Libby Smart and Bruce Field. Well done everyone and congratulations Elvy on your first ever clean sweep.
