CROQUET

The Riverine Herald - - LOCAL CLASSIES -

River Golf Club Tatalia func­tion room, en­joy­ing a de­li­cious two-course fes­tive din­ner.

It was a very en­ter­tain­ing evening and a lot of fun was had by all.

There was a Christ­mas trivia quiz and a the­atre sports event or­gan­ised by pres­i­dent Marg Kennedy in which eight un­sus­pect­ing mem­bers were asked to par­tic­i­pate in an im­promptu per­for­mance.

The GVCA As­so­ci­a­tion croquet pen­nant fi­nals were held at Rich River on Wed­nes­day of this week.

Divi­sion one was played be­tween Shep­par­ton’s Kevin Maloney and Noel Dealy, and He­len and Ron Wrest of Mooroopna Gold.

Mooroopna had a good start, win­ning the dou­bles 26 hoops to five.

Shep­par­ton fought back in the sin­gles, win­ning both games 26-10 and 26-8.

The end re­sult was Shep­par­ton two games 57 to Mooroopna Gold one game 44.

In divi­sion three, Ken Richard­son and Sue Van Luneb­urg of Mooroopna on 10 hoops beat Beryl Kelly and Kathy Maloney of Shep­par­ton Green on nine.

Ken went on to win his sin­gles against Beryl 14 hoops to nine, and Sue lost to Kathy four hoops to 18.

The end re­sult was in­ter­est­ing, Mooroopna win­ning two games to one, but the hoop score was in Shep­par­ton’s favour, 31 to 28.

FRI­DAY of last week six mem­bers de­cided to en­joy the morn­ing at Vic Park and play some croquet. Two games of dou­bles were played be­fore the heat set in, Jan Tracy was the win­ner and Elayne Pick­thall run­nerup.

Mon­day this week was a nice day with plenty of sun­shine and 14 mem­bers joined to­gether to play dou­bles, the games were all tak­ing a long time to fin­ish as they were be­ing fought out to the last hoop.

There was plenty of laugh­ter on the courts es­pe­cially when Jill Gra­ham did the most bril­liant jump shot, the ball ric­o­chet­ing off an­other ball and do­ing a re­v­erse jump shot through the back of the hoop. Un­for­tu­nately Jill couldn’t claim the hoop, bad luck Jill.

The day turned out to be a very good day with the nice weather and good com­pany, the win­ner of the Let’s Do Cof­fee Voucher was Jenny van der Zande win­ning her three games with a score of +21 and a tie for run­ner-up both win­ning two games Jan Tracy +6 and Trevor Peters +6.

Jump shots for the day were Trevor Peters one and Jeff Pumpa one. Hoop in one — Jeff Pumpa one. New mem­bers are al­ways wel­come at the courts at Vic Park, con­tact John Al­stin on 0418 505 614 for more in­for­ma­tion.
