There were two opposition balls sitting in front of the hoop and Dors’ ball went straight through both and scored the hoop.
The ‘in club’ pennant went well with the Sapphires at last gaining a win over the Emeralds.

The list for the Christmas luncheon is on the noticeboard so please add your name and your partner’s if you would like to go.
It will be held at the Long Paddock and they will provide a free bus to go from the croquet courts.
It is on Sunday, December 16 with a three course meal at $30 per head with the club subsidising the balance.
Presentations will be made at the luncheon so it’s hoped there will be a good number of players and partners.
