Our 20th anniversary is Wednesday April 3, and will be celebrated with games and lunch.

The last of our twilight croquet and dinners for this season was our annual fish and chip night. Lovely weather, good company, and some good games.

There was an excellent turn up to our Fee and Free sausage sizzle, for those who have renewed their membership, and our fun doubles, where 37 members took part.

Starting times
From the beginning of April start times are Tuesdays and Saturdays 9.45 am, and 12.45 on Wednesdays. Twilight games will start again in January.

Congratulations to Richard Parks, winner of the club championship, and to runner-up John van der Touw. Richard played very well, winning all his games against some tough competition. Our sponsor Ryman probided the entrants with show bags, and the winners with drink flasks, much appreciated.
