Croquet/Bowling Challenge Report

A big thank you to everyone who signed up and attended another hugely successful Croquet/ Bowling challenge yesterday 1st July.
This was our second meeting with our near neighbours at the croquet club and judging by the pleasing comments could very well become an annual event.The croquet club hosted the morning event, which produced a few winners from the bowling fraternity, John Sawyer being awarded the overall winners prize with a massive 19 points – well done John.
We then retired for a rather excellent and well presented lunch supplied by our friendly hosts after the morning session. Special thanks to Gail Moors, she didn’t do last years event, so this was all new to her, but she handled it with exceptional expertise – well done Gail.
After lunch we then all made our way over to our green for the afternoon session and introduced our guests to how we play ’round robin’ and without exception was thoroughly enjoyed by all concerned. The groups were organized in a way that was to evenly split bowlers with croquet players to make sure that our guests had adequate help and guidance during their games to ensure that their experience was as enjoyable as possible, to which we had a lot of very positive feedback.
Halfway through the session we all had a very welcome tea and cakes break with our ladies providing an extremely lavish and varied selection, which definitely went down well. Thank you to all who made contributions.
At the end of what proved to be a most enjoyable day of croquet/bowling, we awarded a few prizes to our visitors who scored well in the ’round robin’, one of whom was Gail Moors herself (I think John Sawyer and Gail have been having secret training sessions).
I would also like to thank everyone who helped with the organisation and preparation of the event and made a success of it, this despite the fact that we had to contend with millions of runners around the park on the day. Here’s looking forward to next year.
