Mal­let club marks 60

Sunshine Coast Daily - Caloundra Weekly - - LIFE -

A LARGE num­ber of Caloun­dra Mal­let Sports Club mem­bers and spouses at­tended a lunch at the club house to cel­e­brate its 60th birth­day. Pres­i­dent Howard Williams thanked past and present mem­bers for their con­tri­bu­tions, not only for en­abling the club to reach this mile­stone; but also for what their con­tri­bu­tions have achieved.

Mr Williams said that the club has six full-sized courts mak­ing it the largest cro­quet cen­tre in Queens­land.

“Our courts are re­garded by many to be among the best in the State.

“We of­fer the three forms of cro­quet, as­so­ci­a­tion, ric­o­chet and golf cro­quet, at a com­pet­i­tive level, as well as gate­ball; and our cur­rent mem­ber­ship is 74 mak­ing the club among the stronger clubs in the state.”

Green’s di­rec­tor Ted Sin­gle­ton gave a his­tory of the courts; and im­me­di­ate past pres­i­dent Sue Ber­tram and hus­band Mike, pre­sented mem­bers with a me­mento; a 1958 penny in­serted into a lac­quered piece of wood with a CMSC 60th in­scrip­tion un­der­neath.

The cake was cut by life mem­bers, Lor­raine Sin­gle­ton and Mike Finch. Be­tween them Lor­raine and Mike have 52 years of con­tin­u­ous mem­ber­ship.
