The Forbes Croquet Club held a Gala Open Day to celebrate Seniors Week at the end of last month. With 13 visitors trying the game of croquet, the total number of players for the day added up to 41, with a great number of the visitors keen to join the club. All donations on the day will be presented to Forbes CanAssist.
On a sad note we learnt of the passing of one of our valued members, Elizabeth McLean. Liz was a very well-respected lady who enjoyed her game of Aussie croquet and was always competitive.
She started playing in 1992 at the Jemalong Retirement Village, and continued to play at the Golf Club and then at the Bowling Club.
In 2012 the croquet lawns were established at Halpins Flat, and in the same year Liz was honoured with Life membership of the Forbes Croquet Club.
