Simon Cook went to croquet headquarters in Sydney in his first attempt at a state tournament; the Associaition Handicap Championship, and came a creditable 6th.
Our Clarence Valley Pennants match away to Lawrence was most enjoyable, in large part due to the hospitality of the Lawrence club. It was even better in that we won all three matches. In the top match Bill Gauci and Phil Jordan won 7-4, 7-6. Pam Gauci and Ann Williams won 7-2, 7-5. Sheila Foley and Tony Williams completed a fine day winning 7-5, 7-6. Lunch afterwards capped a memorable day.
Royce Wilson started the week claiming to be in great form, and his results proved it, four big wins, best of the day. Sel Ford and Pat McLennan were also unbeaten with Ken Davison the only player to lose every game.
On Saturday almost every game was one-sided. On the right side were Phyll Harrison and Ken Davison who won all their games.
Ricochet produced four games, all won by a single point or after the buzzer. The hoops tally at the end of the morning was Peter Martin 18, Rusty Case 15 and 13 each to Sue Deeth and Gillian Martin.
Training on Friday saw four new players polishing their skills. In a practice game Robyn Higham and Rita Johnson beat Fay See and Barrie Johnson 7-1.
In AC Simon Cook and Peter Deeth tuned up for a tournament in Urunga this coming week.
