Croquet week ending 11th August
It was an interesting week with two players hitting the big 80 (years)! Congratulations to Jeff Liebich and John Job. A birthday lunch was held at the Forbes Bowling Club to celebrate the big day and was attended by 41 members.
John H. Browne did a feat that had never been done on our courts before. He managed two holes in one. There seem to be more players winning all their games with seven members managing three wins on Tuesday. They were John Brown, Bruce Field, Merv Langfield, Bob Murray, Kevin Rubie, Bill Scott and Marjorie Styles. This will add some heated competition to the end of year’s scores.
Saturday’s Aussie Croquet was a windy affair with chairs and tables blowing around the area. One of our players had a senior’s moment turning up with a tennis racquet instead of his croquet mallet. That made everybody’s day and was the cause of great hilarity. There were three winners of three games namely John Allegri, Merv Langfield and Lyn Simmonds.
