As­so­ci­a­tion Cro­quet

A NEW player was wel­comed and was ably guided around the greens by ex­pe­ri­enced mem­ber Pat Sch­noor. Peter and Jenny Tun­bridge played strongly to score 14, but were beaten by the ex­pe­ri­enced team of Ef­fey Rus­sell and Val Shep­hard. An­drea Denke­witz played against Grace Howard and Joy New­man, who won the game with 14 points to

An­drea’s 10.

Golf Cro­quet

CON­GRAT­U­LA­TIONS to the newly-elected cap­tain Sharyn Roser. Eight peo­ple en­joyed two windy, cool games.

Mar­ion Cas­tles played well to score 9 hoops; her part­ner Val Fan­court scored 4, one of which was a tricky jump shot. Their to­tal of 13 beat op­po­nents Liz Ell­way, 1, and Elaine Brown, 4. Teresa Pyne seven and Diane Wren, 6, tri­umphed over Justin Liddy, 2, and Sharyn Roser, 4.

Af­ter morning tea, Sharyn, 7, and Val, 6, had a close win over Mar­ian, 5, and Teresa, 4. Val scored a hole-in-one dur­ing this game and was de­lighted. Dead-eye Di, 10, and Justin, 3, beat Elaine, 4, and Liz, 4. There were some hotly con­tested hoops with lots of jostling and much fun was had by all.

Ric­o­chet Cro­quet

THIS is a game new to our mem­bers which was tri­alled for the first time this week. It is more chal­leng­ing than Golf Cro­quet but not as com­plex as As­so­ci­a­tion Cro­quet.

If any­one would like to join in, come along on Thurs­day morn­ings at 8.30pm. Eight mem­bers braved the cool windy con­di­tions to learn this in­ter­est­ing game.


ONLY five peo­ple were present to play three games. In the first game, white team Pat Sch­noor and Sharyn Roser com­fort­ably beat red team An­drea Denke­witz, Grace Howard and Joy New­man with a score of 16-8. The sec­ond game saw a re­ver­sal, with red team win­ning with a to­tal of 15 to white team’s score of 10. The third game ended with red team Pat and Sharyn scor­ing 15 against white team An­drea, Grace and Joy scor­ing 10.

Grace and Pat played par­tic­u­larly well in spite of the chal­leng­ing strong wind.

RSL Golf

WHAT a topsy-turvy world re­volves around the game of golf. One week you can be at the bot­tom of the pile, sub­ject to the ridicule of your mates and next week you be­come the vil­lain with the best score of the day.

That’s the world of Eric McLel­lan, last week’s NAGA win­ner, this week’s com­pe­ti­tion win­ner with a great score of 39 points.

Charles Seeto must be lik­ing fa­ther­hood, as once again, he was at the top as well. His score of 38 wasn’t quite enough to top­ple Eric, but was good enough to take the run­ner-up prize.

Other scores were pretty aver­age as most golfers seemed to be wind­ing down for Christ­mas.

Keith Bar­nett how­ever was out­stand­ing, win­ning the

NAGA this week with 16 points. Pin shots on 3 and 17 went to Keith Jones and Charles Seeto, while the pin shot on 12 re­mained un­claimed.

It seems the ladies are wind­ing down as well, with most of them not per­form­ing to the best of their abil­ity.

Tr­ish Fit­tock was as re­li­able as ever with a good 37 points, with Linda Kelly and Chris­tine Wel­stead fol­low­ing up with 37 each.

New golfer Sha­neen McLel­lan is start­ing to im­prove, and it won’t be long be­fore she is up there with the win­ners. The ladies were not very ac­cu­rate on the pin shots, with An­nele Bat­ter­ham and Lynette Lud­low the only two to hit the greens.

Next week will be a sin­gle sta­ble­ford for both groups. Vis­i­tors are most wel­come.

Sporters Golf

A GOOD roll-up on Sun­day saw Paul Arm­strong take the win. Dave Wil­liams was the run­ner-up and the run-downs went to Tony Steele and Jim Mitchell.

Paul also had the best gross. No tak­ers on the 12th pin shot and Terry Byrnes took the 17th. Pro Pin went to Paul. Dick Hil­ton and Ray Thorn were the lucky meat tray win­ners.

Same time tee-off be­tween 7.30-8am next week.

A big hello to Phil Zikan and hope your re­cov­ery is go­ing well.

Don’t for­get the break-up on Sun­day, De­cem­ber 10.

Stan­thorpe Bowls

WHAT a day for bowls on Wed­nes­day.

Our afternoon so­cial bowls was rained out and the last of the cur­rent Twi­light se­ries frozen out!

The only good thing was John Cooke’s sausages.

At least the greens are ap­pre­cia­tive of the rain and look­ing bet­ter all the time.

Satur­day - Nice sunny day for two games of triples on a good fast green.

Cliff Jones won the raf­fle cour­tesy of Domi­nos here in Stan­thorpe.

John Gra­ham, Justin Liddy and Wendy Hur­nall went down to Justin, Brain Brown and John Cooke by a lot.

Helen Jones, Cliff Jones and Frank Gallo had a very close game go­ing shot for shot all the way to Ernie Jones, Val White and Jeff Aldridge com­ing out 18-17 on the last end.

Two teams off to War­wick East next Sun­day.

Nom­i­na­tions forms for AGM on the no­tice board at the club and club fees are due by the end of De­cem­ber.

The an­nual Christ­mas raf­fle for a Wool­worths gift/fuel card goes on sale in the main street on Novem­ber 17 and is drawn De­cem­ber 16.

Thanks to all who sup­ported Twi­light and we hope to have an­other round in Fe­bru­ary/ March when the weather hope­fully will be a bit kinder.


LAST Thurs­day we played a five-table Mitchell move­ment and the win­ners for N/S were M and B War­ren.

Sec­ond were J Kenyon, R Pen­ning­ton and third were J Fernie, H Cobon. For E/W M Fin­lay, C Ax­wor­thy fin­ished first with M Brooks, K Bar­nett sec­ond and J Bell, J New­man third.
