Week Ending 6th July 2019
We are pleased to announce that funding for a defibrillator was granted by the NSW Department of Sport and Recreation and the Forbes Shire Council. The defibrillator has arrived and a training program was held at the Forbes Sports & Recreation Club on the 26th June, where many of our members were in attendance.
The Defibrillator has now been installed in the Croquet Club House by the capable hands of John Browne and Neville Spry. We are hoping it is never needed, but nevertheless it is a great asset and goes a step further in caring for the croquet community.
The birthday girl for July was Libby Smart, a celebratory lunch was well attended at the Sport and Recreation Club.

Closest games of Aussie Croquet Saturday 6th July 2019:
23 players participated in Saturday’s Aussie Croquet. There were four winners of three matches; they were John Browne, Merv Langfield, Kevin Rubie and Neville Spry. The last game was a nail biter at the end. Bill Scott and Kevin Rubie defeated Harley Stewart and Jeff Liebich 14 to 13. It was an up and down game with no one getting a clear advantage. Harley Stewart was one hoop behind as he cleared the hoop and aimed straight for the peg in an amazing shot which hit the peg.
It ended up four players aiming at the finishing peg at the same time. Bill Scott finished the game with a clean shot which hit Jeff Liebich’s ball and his second shot finished the game after hitting the peg.
