Nice touch

Seymour Telegraph - - LOCAL CLASSIES - Nagam­bie’s newest cro­quet player Ch­eryl Mor­ris in ac­tion.

Nagam­bie Cro­quet Club’s shel­ter ded­i­ca­tion in mem­ory to Dorothy McLeod was a great suc­cess last week.

The weather was kind to us and only threat­ened to rain while play­ing golf cro­quet.

We had two se­ri­ous games where the hoops were counted in the morn­ing and then con­tin­ued with fun games where the McLeod fam­ily mem­bers joined in.

Cameron, Dorothy’s grand­son, and Ry­land, her great-grand­son who is only 10 years old, gave a good ac­count of them­selves, with some coach­ing from the play­ers.

At 2 pm, Kenn Boal from Rich River of­fi­cially ded­i­cated the shel­ter with some happy tales of Dorothy on the cro­quet courts.

Kenn asked life mem­ber Eileen McDon­ald, Ry­land and Max Dun­stone, who is a great stal­wart of our club, to un­veil the sign on the shel­ter.

A lovely af­ter­noon tea fol­lowed with pre­sen­ta­tion of prizes for the win­ners and the raf­fle.

The win­ners of the games were: first He­len Wrest (Mooroopna), sec­ond Kenn Boal (Rich River) and third Chris Peutz (Kyabram).

The raf­fle prizes went to Kenn Boal (first) and Stacey Cool (sec­ond).

Thank you to the McLeod fam­ily for the gen­er­ous do­na­tion to­ward the re­fur­bish­ment of the shel­ter.

Last week we were to play Nu­murkah Navy, but un­for­tu­nately Nu­murkah could not field a team, so it was a for­feit to Nagam­bie.

This week we played Shep­par­ton Gold at home and had a win, two games and 33 hoops to one game and 30 hoops.

To­day we are at home to Rich River.

We play be­tween 10 am and 3 pm, then have a cuppa af­ter­wards, and we would wel­come any­one who would like to watch to come down.
