President Pam runs first hoop of season
Pam Wiegard did the honours of running the first hoop at the combined Golden Square Bowls and Croquet Opening of the Season. Beforehand, we played a game of croquet in freezing conditions but finally succumbed when it hailed. What a hardy bunch we are! Good fellowship and a bbq cooked by the bowlers warmed us up.
CROQUET IN PRIMARY SCHOOLS
A pilot project at Golden Square to take croquet into a primary school last year was successful and is currently being replicated at Quarry Hill School as part of their Physical Education. Using modified equipment bought with the assistance of a VicHealth grant to Golden Square Croquet Club, and personnel from three Bendigo Clubs, over 200 Year 5/6 students have been introduced to croquet so far.
Our member, Jenny McCarthy, recently introduced her 'little brother' to croquet. David has since become a member and has proved to be a keen and competitive player. We are delighted to have new members Lindsay Hamilton, Di Montgomery, Robin Gillman, and Trish Foster join our ranks as well.
Maldon visits Golden Square
We enjoyed the challenge when Maldon visited our Club recently. The weather was kind and the competition strong. At the end of the day, Maldon were the winners but friendship prevailed, as demonstrated in photo of Sandy (Maldon) and Lindsay (Golden Sq.). Watch out next year, Maldon!
