Rich River Anzac Classis Association 2019

In the annual Rich River Anzac Classic we were very excited in Event 1 to have 15 top association players with handicaps -2 to 2.5 from Sydney and Canberra and Melbourne and country Victoria and one player all the way from Ireland. We were treated to some excellent association croquet by some very talented players. In block 1. A very impressive run of 7 wins out of 7 games and a total of 104 net hoops saw Rich River's Kenn Boal into the final. In block 2 Chris Grant of Ringwood won his block with 5 wins out of 7 and 24 nett hoops and he and Kenn faced off in the final. Kenn won with the final score of 26 hoops to Chris' 10. Third spot went to Kevin Beard of Yarrawonga who was the runner up in Block 1 with 5 wins and 44 nett hoops. Runner up in Block 2, Sandy Greig of Ireland took out 4th spot with 4 wins and 39 nett hoops. In Event 2. Congratulations Chris Eiffert of Quarry Hill for winning, Mignon Johnson of Ballarat took second spot, just ahead of Lyle Carey of Mooroopna.

Rich River Social Soup & Bun Day July 2019

The croquet courts at Rich River were alive with fun yesterday when we hosted our social "Soup and Bun" Day. We had 58 entries from several NSW and Victorian clubs and all enjoyed the friendly competition and a few laughs. The courts were in great condition and although cool, the sun was shining and the weather was perfect for croquet. After we all finished our four games of doubles, Beryl Ash of Echuca Moama and Russ Smyth of Rich River were tied in the lead and played a tie breaker game of 5 hoops. After 4 hoops the score was 2 hoops each, and Beryl played the last hoop beautifully to take the win. Congratulations on a great day's play Beryl! The Echuca Moama crew did well on the day. Not only did Beryl win the day, but members Jan Tracey and John Alstin won both door prizes! Many thanks to all our club members who helped make the day a great success.
