Cro­quet club mourns loss of two pop­u­lar mem­bers

Seymour Telegraph - - LOCAL CLASSIES -

Our monthly meet­ing was held on July 3 with five mem­bers present and apolo­gies from two.

Our meet­ing started on a sad note, re­mem­ber­ing two of our mem­bers who passed away in June.

Cyn­thia Neubecker left us on June 9 and Sue Dun­stone on June 27. Both will be missed in our club and the wider cro­quet com­mu­nity.

Cyn­thia had just started to learn and en­joy the game when she be­came ill about four years ago.

She still took part in the so­cial side and helped with her daugh­ter Bron­wyn to sell many a ticket on our pub raf­fles.

Sue had great suc­cess in be­ing our club cham­pion in As­so­ci­a­tion Cro­quet, win­ning the Goul­burn Val­ley re­gion cham­pi­onship and then go­ing on to the re­gional, play­ing against other re­gions in Vic­to­ria.

She also held all po­si­tions on our com­mit­tee over the years. I think trea­surer was her favourite.

Both Sue and her hus­band Max also col­lated the pub raf­fle meet­ing dates and de­liv­ered them, which helps all clubs in the town who at­tend these meet­ings.

Sue and Max did many odd jobs around the club, with Sue dob­bing Max in to put a screw here or there, or to build some­thing.

Sue and Cyn­thia will be well re­mem­bered.

Two mem­bers went to Euroa last week for a Golf Cro­quet soup and bun day.

There was a lit­tle rain in the morn­ing but it fined up in the af­ter­noon for a cou­ple of en­joy­able games.

Some mem­bers are also go­ing to Mooroopna and Echuca so­cial days in the next two weeks, then the real bat­tles be­gin.

Our sea­son open­ing will be held at Shep­par­ton on July 24, then the pen­nant sea­son will start on July 26, so there will be some cold hands and toes for the first few weeks.

We have a yearly bat­tle with Euroa for the Sol­stice Cup. This is nor­mally played late in June, but it has been de­ferred to Au­gust this year.

It will be golf cro­quet in­stead of as­so­ci­a­tion when it is played at a date to be de­cided.

It will be played at Nagam­bie, so we would look for­ward to see­ing some spec­ta­tors when the date is an­nounced.

Any­one in­ter­ested in join­ing our club or com­ing for a try, phone Val on 5794 2353 or Wendy on 5793 8335.

You will be made wel­come, and the jug is al­ways on for a nice hot drink in this cool weather.
