Last Wednesday was our first "Twilight Croquet" game of the year and it was a glorious evening with a nice breeze and the courts are a picture. The winning teams were Fay/Graham, Leigh/Andrew, June/Clare, Clare/June, Andrew/Ray, Genny/Steve, Susie M/Toni, Steve/Graham. Leigh showed she has lost nothing over the break by winning the Sheriff's badge only to have it taken off her by Glynis shortly after. We welcomed Meg, Wendy and Ray. Glynis returned after a break.
Join us on Wednesday and arrive at 6pm if you want to accompany us for early dinner in the Norfolk Bistro, if not we hit off at 7pm and play until 9pm. New members and visitors welcome, flat soled shoes are a must. All equipment supplied and people to teach you the game of Golf Croquet or if you are already playing we would love to have game with you. Cost is $10. Contact John and Fay Church on 6645 8189 or Graham Schubert on 6645 8073 or just turn up. See you at Croquet at the Bowlo!

Another prospective new member, Jane Tanner, was welcomed at this week's swim, and we hope that she was suitably impressed and will return for more competition.
Jill Enk's grandson James and Max Kroehnert helped with time keeping which was greatly appreciated as it took pressure off others.
Yvonne Shorrock, Tracey Hill, Bruce Phelps and Doug Ensbey were the finalists in the 50m freestyle. Yvonne looked incredibly comfortable in the water, stroking strongly and evenly and lead the pack for the entire distance although being chased by Ensbey and Phelps. The judge however had bad news for all three: Yvonne broke by 1.85 seconds, Doug by .83 and Bruce by .16. Tracey, although recording a time slightly slower than nominated was awarded the win.
Gary Dixon, Richard Sear, Andrew Madden and Sharon Welch made it through to the 30m
sprint final. Sharon was away first on handicap but it didn't take Dixon and Sear very long to close the gap with Searsy crossing the line just ahead of Gazza. Once again the judge had bad news to present with Searsy breaking by .28 and Gazza by .32. These breaks saw Andrew elevated to a long overdue win with Sharon taking second place.
Returning back to swimming after many weeks at the beach, Damien O'Mahony still had enough form to make the final of the B B & B along with Jill Enks, John Wainwright and Doug Ensbey. Jill, away first on handicap, was swimming strongly but as the 30m line drew closer she was overtaken by Doug and John. The judge, having an absolute field day disqualified Doug for breaking by 1.78 seconds and also John who busted by .68. Jill was one very happy woman when she was announced the winner, coming home just .28 ahead of Damien who was placed second.
There is a bit of a question mark over our weekly swim on January 26 (Australia Day) so stay tuned to our Facebook page for further updates.
Nominations are now closed for the Far North Coast carnival being held at Twin Towns on February 6 2021. Accommodation for those attending will be sourced this week.
