Lawrence Croquet Club

TUESDAY was a perfect day for croquet, and a good roll up. The greens were running fast which some managed better than others.

Bob got off to a good start with an in off shot, then Janet, Tonia, Carole, Leanne and Heather all scored Golden Hoops. Only Esmee got a jump shot.

It was nice to have Vois back with us for lunch and she also won one of the lucky door prizes.

We all enjoyed lunch and we had birthday cake for Bon and Ken. Happy birthday to you both (thanks Lorraine). After lunch Joy and Esmee “challenged” Ken and Bob. They tell me it was quite a tussle, the boys winning 7/6. Then the return game the girls won an equally exciting game.

Thursday – Down on numbers a little. It was nice to welcome a new player, Jill, from South Grafton. Pam played well and had a nice in off shot. Karen, Carole and Kath played singles. Carole scoring an amazing Golden Hoop, and the crowd roared. The very next shot Karen scored one too and the crowd roared again, Under such pressure Kath hit a jump shot then Carole and Kath had in off shots. Leanne also had a jump shot.

The girls are still keen on their Majong and a few turned out for Thursdays game. Anyone wishing to play be at the Golf Club by 12pm or ring phone number below.

New players are always welcome. Our days of play are Tuesday and Thursday mornings from 7.30am All equipment is supplied. The cost to play is $6 per session.

For more information contact Carole Radford 0427783330 or Karen Marsden 0437157198 or just turn up to play. We are located at the Lawrence Golf Course, Anne/March St, Lawrence.
