Successful Western Metro GC doubles event over Easter weekend

Western Metro held its second annual Easter handicap doubles event at Cairnlea this weekend, again sponsored by the Pascoe Vale Community Bank who donated $800 towards prize money and refereeing.

The event attracted sixteen pairs in two events, from five metro clubs and six regional clubs. 

Saturday was very warm and by the end of the day players were wilting. Sunday was overcast and very windy, and threatened rain, but play finished before the storm.

Most results were very close in both sections.

Placegetters were:

Section 1
Winners: Julie Barber & Virginia Rowe (Swan Hill /Ballarat Alexandra) - last year's Section 2 winners - with 5 wins and 9 net hoops
Runners up: Butch and Paula Hollier (Belmont), with 5 wins and 8 net hoops.

Section 2
Winners: Jane & Wolfgang Klemenz (Belmont), who were unbeaten on 7 wins and 28 net hoops.
Runners up: Glenn & Marie Bult (Essendon) with 5 wins and 4 net hoops, beating Carmel Terrington & Ally Gray (Eastern Park/Ivanhoe) on count back.

Full results are on Croquetscores.

It was good to see some new players having a go at competition.

Well done to tournament manager Ken Amoore, referees Shirley Hallinan Brian Rowe and Ian Matthews, and the support crews from Brunswick, Brimbank and Maribyrnong Park.
