CROQUET NEWS

Comic of the Week

The weather is improving and we had a good turnout on Friday.

Some players are still absent on holidays, hopefully enjoying themselves.

The green team are still working on the grounds, getting ready for the upcoming tournament in A/C.  We appreciate the effort that is put into this area.

Keep on hooping….

MEN’S BOWLS

Thursday

A handful of crazy, intrepid bowlers weathered a gale force wind and a splash of rain. Young Tom Ferguson and his henchman Brian Logan triumphed over all opponents to return home overloaded with cash instead of the usual meat pack.

Saturday

Even fewer bowlers turned up on a much kinder day and the number included just one lady, Jem Coupar, and an ambidextrous gentleman, who bowled outstanding with his left arm! Dennis Frost. Ian Creagh and Norm Gage won the sheep station.

Locker keys are now available to those who would like to possess a locker in the men’s changing room. Please approach the Secretary when he is available.

THOUGHT OF THE WEEK

The reason they call it “golf” is that all other four letter words are used up.

*******************************

Hi riders,

Regular MTB ride leaves 4.30pm every Wed, weather permitting, from Dunsborough Country Club.

Approx 1.5 to 2 hours ride, cross country, 25 kms give or take a few kms.

BYO lights essential.

This replaces our 6.30 am ride over winter, as we  would rather sleep in at the moment!

Cheers, Helen
