Mallet club marks 60
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.
