|The Lismore Croquet Carnival|
5-11 Aug 2007
Lismore Croquet Club
We have just finished our yearly Lismore croquet carnival. We had lovely sunny, warm days and all participants and onlookers certainly enjoyed the occasion.
In 2005 we had 36 players in 6 blocks but this year we only had 18 players in 3 blocks. Some players have indicated they would prefer to have more than 1 game per day and we will probably change the format next year to enable this and hopefully attract more players.
We were going to have championship play but with the reduced number of players we decided to change to handicap play in order to make the blocks more level.
The results were:
Block A (-0.5 to +5 bisques)
Winner - Robyn Stock (Lismore player)
Runner-up - Max Donati (Byron Bay)
Both of these players pegged out in 4 games of their 5 games played
Block B (6 to 11)
Winner - Allan Pedlow (Ringwood, Victoria)
Runner-up - Helen Gavan (Ballina)
Block C (11-20)
Winner - Bill Strick (Maitland)
Runner-up - Judy Pedlow (Ringwood)
