Visit to Bunbury Central Croquet Club
Terry, Raelene, Kate, Helen and Vaile visited Bunbury Central Croquet Club last Thursday, 19th January where we played 3 rounds of 14 point A/C games in mixed teams.
Raelene scored the greatest number of hoops for the day. Well done!
It was a memorable day for Vaile who “pegged out” for the first time!
We enjoyed the company of fellow A/C players from a different club and the visit made us appreciate how good our croquet facilities are and what a great job Raelene does as Greenkeeper.
