95 not out
Elsternwick Croquet Club celebrated the 95th birthday of member Ruth Puryer at an afternoon tea on Sunday 15 July.
Ruth has been playing croquet for 35 years, taking it up when she retired, and is still sprightly, cheery and an active player. Possibly the positive effects of 35 years playing Association Croquet!
Thanks to Mike Cohn
On Tuesday 17 July Mike Cohn attended his final meeting as Immediate Past President of Croquet Victoria, and was presented with a plaque honouring his eleven years of service to Council.
Mike served as a member of the Committee of Management; as Vice President; and as President for nearly six years, to August 2016.

VCA GC Men's and Women's Championships
The first tournament of the new season was well attended, and we welcomed a few new faces from Warragul, Belmont and Williamstown.
Seven rounds were played on Saturday, with the finalists not being decided until the last round on Sunday morning.
The website was unavailable from 7.45 pm on Wednesday 22 August until 10.00 am on Friday 24 August due to an incident at the hosting data center.
Everything has been restored from backups and appears to be in order. Please contact the webmaster if you become aware of any problems with your club or player data.
