Notes from The Editor
Richard Savage reigned victorious over Alan Robinson in the final of the Mayor’s Handicap Singles held on March 6th. It was a fun event and I would like to again thank Colin for all the time he puts in to ensuring the smooth running of our competitions and hopefully these happy faces will encourage more to participate.
I had thought of including a “shot of the month” to inspire you all but now realise it is too late as so many have told of Rose Anne’s simply amazing treble jump shot from some point quite distant from the hoop. No doubt the story became more exciting with each telling but clearly it was totally brilliant and unlikely to be bettered any time soon so congratulations are in order and commiserations to whoever thought their ball in the hoop was safe.
Thanks to John Stewart, our club has been included in this year’s Seniors’ Festival and the open day is on Saturday, April 17th between 10am and 3pm. It would be great to have plenty of volunteers on the day and Blake will be there at 10am to start the balls rolling.
Annie for Blake (holidaying)

Northern Beaches Council will be promoting our Seniors' Week Introduction to Croquet between 10.00 - 3.00 on Saturday April 17th on their "What's on in Seniors' Week" website at:-
Requesting volunteers on the day to help with introducing visitors to the game. Blake has volunteered to start the day at 10.00. I am hoping members will be able to come for 1 - 2 hours during the day, indicating their availability on a form in the clubhouse.
Visitors will be given an introduction to Croquet and a practice game. Equipment will be provided, the participants need to wear closed footwear and expect to spend about 1 hour on the courts.
