Croquet week ending 2nd February
The year is getting away fast and already we have had our February luncheon which was held on Tuesday at the Forbes Sports and Recreation Club with a celebration for those members having birthdays in January and February,
Those celebrating birthdays in January were Cherylin Cole, Colleen Liebich, Elizabeth McLean, Evelyn Mahlo and Bob Murray whilst celebrating birthdays in February were Mary Hodges, Jill Rubie and Caryl Slattery. Best wishes to all!
It was a little cooler last week and we saw a good number of players take to the fields. It was great to see Libby Smart and Ros Rennick back with us after being on extended holidays.
Winners of three games on Tuesday were John Browne, Kevin Rubie and Libby Smart. Well done to those players.
On Saturday the winners of three games were John Browne, Elizabeth McLean, Kevin Rubie and Libby Smart.
On the last three days of play John Browne has won all three games each day.
Our croquet club continues to grow in numbers and we have some new projects in mind as well as social days planned for Seniors Week in March and World Croquet Day in May.
Our many thanks go to those few members who help set up the fields each day and help with marking of the courts. As well as the other contributions they and others make. Well done to all!
