Victoria Golf Croquet Regional Championships
This year’s Vic Golf Croquet Regional Championships were held at the Victorian Croquet Centre over the weekend of the 23rd and 24th of April. It was truly wonderful to have all 14 regions represented in 2 Divisions or more, so the Courts and the venue were full and bursting with life and energy. After such a long time of restrictions and cancellations, it was fantastic to see Cairnlea thriving on the hustle and bustle once again. Chilly mornings gave way to two lovely days of hard-fought croquet and some very even and exciting competitions.
Several of the players in this year’s Regionals had never been to Cairnlea before and weren’t quite sure what to expect. It’s also wonderful to catch up with people again who I usually only see at this Tournament once a year. Every single person did their Region proud and it was an absolute joy to be around so many people enjoying the venue, enjoying the croquet and representing their Region with a great deal of dignity, fun and spirit of adventure.
Relaxed COVID orders UPDATED - more responsibility for clubs and organisers
The Victorian Government has just announced a series of significant changes in COVID policy. See https://www.health.vic.gov.au/covid-19/pandemic-order-register.
This means clubs and event organisers need to ensure they maintain detailed attendance records, including arrival and departure times.
It is still open to clubs to require that anyone attending be fully vaxxed / excepted.
