GRAFTON Bridge Club is now using Stepbridge to play online as a club. That is, we play against only our own members on two sessions a week. At other times we play against people from all over Australia. This week the Tuesday match was won by Geoff and Jenny Sharpe. Kerry Harding and Marion Leaver were second with Helen Hearnshaw and Dawn Rapley third. Helen and Dawn filled first place on Thursday September 24 with Jenny Sharpe and Geoff Hiatt second. Del Frawley and Denise Llewellyn were in third place.



TUESDAY – Another good day for croquet. Ken is back after a couple of weeks off, meeting up with old friend Eric. They then teamed up to play Heather and Kath. First game the boys were soundly beaten. Second game the boys got their act together and narrowly won. The third and deciding game the girls don’t want to know about.

In other games Ann, Joy and Bon all scored hoop to hoops, Pam got in a nice jump shot and Heather and Carole both went in off.

Thursday – Karen had a hoop to hoop. Jump shots went to Janet, Edna and Ann. In offs went to Eric, Carole and Karen.

It was good to have Eulie back after an extended time away. You can’t keep a good woman down.

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 0427 783 330 or Karen Marsden 0437 157 198 or just turn up to play. We are located at the Lawrence Golf Course, Anne/March Street. Lawrence.

LAST Wednesday the weather didn’t know if it wanted to be hot or cold but it didn’t worry these winning teams, Anne/Graham, Toni/Clare, Wendy/Mal, Joy/Genny, Rhonda/Clare, John/Graham, Joy/Ray, Pam/Steve, Fay/Toni, Rhonda/David, Margaret/Ian, Genny/Sue, Wendy/Graham, Joy/John, Rhonda/Genny, Ian/Steve, Toni/Rhonda, Mal/Graham, Pam/Steve. Genny took the Sheriff’s badge off Jim then Rosemary rode in to town and shot up the Sheriff (sorry that’s a line out of an old joke) and took the badge off her. Rhonda and Graham had a good day with the mallet and welcome to new player Leigh who played well.

Because of green maintenance we won’t be able to play Twilight Croquet until December so hats and sunscreen will be the order of the day as the weather gets hotter. From now on after the games all players must sign into the club and pay their game fee to the change counter and get a receipt which they will give to Fay for our records. CEO Phil Broughton explained that this was another COVID-19 precaution that is required.

Join us on Wednesdays arrive 8.30am for 9am hit off. New members and visitors welcome (flat soled shoes are a must). All equipment supplied and people to teach you the game of golf croquet or if you are already playing we would love to have game with you. Cost is $10. Contact John and Fay Church 6645 8189 or Graham Schubert 6645 8073 or just turn up. See you at Croquet at the Bowlo.
