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.
