Week Ending 30th March
Slow courts were the order of the day due to a sprinkle of rain and a good wetting from the new sprinkler system. Thank you Forbes Council!
There were not a lot of surprises on the day. Jenny Job continues to improve again, winning two games. Her partners were Geoff Coles and Mary Hodges. Kath Broderick also kept up her improvement. She won two games partnered by Kevin Rubie and Marie Spry. The winners of three matches were John Browne, Jill Rubie, Kevin Rubie, Barry White and Mal Smith.
Everyone was well rugged up for our Aussie croquet. The drop in temperature and a cold wind across the courts did not dampen the spirits. Bob Murray did the same as Geoff Coles did last week by winning three games for three weeks in a row. Kevin Rubie also achieved the same feat.
Considering the conditions, there was some good and close games played. One of the best was Kevin Rubie and Geoff Coles with 14, who defeated Barry White and Harley Stewart with 13 on the last shot of the match.
