Club cel­e­brates 90 years

Kapi-Mana News - - FRONT PAGE -

The sun shone for Plim­mer­ton Croquet Club mem­bers as they cel­e­brated 90 years as a club on Septem­ber 3.

There was twice the rea­son to cel­e­brate as the new fifth lawn was of­fi­cially opened, af­ter months of plan­ning, earth­works, lawn lay­ing, spray­ing and mow­ing to get the sur­face pris­tine.

More than 50 play­ers, in­clud­ing some guests from other clubs from around the re­gion, en­joyed mod­i­fied games that were a com­bi­na­tion of both as­so­ci­a­tion and golf croquet codes.

Choco­late bars were the or­der of the day for scor­ing, and oc­ca­sional non-scor­ing, on the green.

Af­ter lunch, the 90th cel­e­bra­tion cake, cre­ated by Sue Dews­nap, was cut by club pa­tron John Burke.

Plim­mer­ton Club is now ready to take on all com­peti­tors over the sum­mer, pub­lic­ity of­fi­cer Ali­son Davies said.
