Croquet for Cancer
Sue Elliott and George Harris, of Morwell Croquet Club, were pleased to be able to present a cheque for $500 to Megan Hecker at the Gippsland Cancer Care Centre recently. Megan is the Nurse Unit Manager of the Chemotherapy Unit.
This cheque, along with one for $550 donated in March, was the proceeds from last year’s Melbourne Cup Day, donations from Latrobe City Council staff during their eight week inter-office challenge and Latrobe City Council for hosting their staff.

Morwell Croquet Club has been supporting the Cancer Centre for a number of years now and it was interesting to learn that the total amount donated has now reached over $7,500.
A huge thank you to all those who have helped us to achieve this.
Without their continued support, this would not have been possible.

Second Selectors GC Invitation, 2019
The Second Selectors Invitation Tournament was held at Cairnlea over the weekend of 24 and 25 August. It was run over two days with 30 players competing in four round robin blocks of 19 point games.
Entry was by way of invitation and these were issued to a range of established and rapidly developing players. It was really pleasing to have a player under the age of 21 in the field.
