Re-building after the Fire

Well, after 5 months our clubhouse is almost back to how it looked before the fire in May. The Council of Greater Bendigo has been ever present in negotiations with the Insurance Co. and our liaison between our club and the builders. Many thanks also go to our next door neighbours, Bendigo Bowls Club who have taken us under their wing and have been very generous with the use of their facilities. We will be able to thank everyone officially when the building is complete.

Individual successes

2015 - Congratulations go to Jo Bury who was runner up in her section at the inaugural Festival of Croquet tournament held in Bendigo recently & also to Peter Martyn who won his section in the Murray Valley Croquet Assoc. tournament. Jo also won her section in the Quarry Hill G.C.tournament on the first singles day & Jenny Upton won her section on the second day of the singles tournament. 2016 - Jo backed up her win again in the Quarry Hill Tournament, also runner up in her section at the Festival of Croquet in Bendigo.

Our official re-opening

We finally organised our official date to thank everyone in the re-opening of our club. So many people helped us in so many ways after the devastation of the fire in May 2015. A huge thank you to everyone involved. We were especially excited to have the Governor of Victoria, The Honourable Linda Dessau accept our invitation & were delighted when she played a ball through a hoop to mark the occasion. Champagne bottles were popped & a table full of niceties was enjoyed by all.


NDCA Pennant 2015

Kyneton came out the winners in both sections in this year's Pennant. Congratulations to all the players. Bendigo did us proud with Peter Martyn winning the most singles games and hoops overall. Jo Bury was named the best up & coming player by Chris Eiffert (who does a great job organising Pennant). Jo won many back to back singles as well. Kyneton won all their matches with Bendigo hot on their heels only losing one match. Maldon coming a very close third place. Jo & Peter's handicaps were greatly improved & we all look forward to next year's Pennant competition. No wins for 2016 Pennant but look forward to 2017.
