Finish 20-21 Oct 2018
Marrickville held the Association 14 Under last weekend with only 4 players this year. I heard the club room was flooded overnight. Not what you need in the middle of a comp.
After a quick clean up play got under way with Charles Britton - Winning & Roberta Flint - Runner Up. Well done to all players .
Also that same weekend Strathfield hosted the Association Bronze Singles with extremely hot weather for the players on the Saturday. There were 9 players. The Winner of Block A was Nerida Phelps (3 wins) & Runner up Ruth Duigan (2 wins). Block B was won by Lorraine Hatfield (3 wins with + 11) & Runner Up Werner Kos also on 3 wins with +5. Lorraine & Nerida played off in the Finals with Lorraine as Winner & Nerida as Runner up. Congratulations to all players. Many thanks to Anne Shaddick for a well run event in Yvonne Webster's absence.

Block A was won by Lynda Toms (5 wins) & Runner Up Lorraine Hatfield (3 wins) Block B was won by Jill Sullivan (5 wins) & Runner Up Anne Cullen (3 wins) Lynda & Jill played off in the Finals with Lynda as Winner & Jill Runner Up. Many Thanks to those that assisted on the day as well as playing & thanks to Pam Markwell & Alan Brown for a well run event.
This last weekend was the Golf Doubles played at Sutherland. There were 19 entries for a draw of 16 places. Within 2 days we were down to only 15 entries. But thankfully a few people stepped up at the last minute to fill the gaps & the event was able to go ahead. Play got under way on the Saturday with hot weather & on the Sunday it was extremely windy & quite cool. Block A was very close with Tony McArthur & David Woods with 5 wins as well as Lynda Toms & Lorraine Hatfield. But Lynda & Lorraine were Winners with 10 net points , 1 point ahead of David & Tony, who were Runners Up with 9 net points. Block B was won by Anne & Peter Cullen with 7 wins & Runners up were Terrie Welsh & Margaret Morters with 6 wins. Also a very close contest. The Finals play off was won by Anne & Peter with Lynda & Lorraine Runners Up. Many Thanks to John Eddes for running the event over the 2 days.

Many thanks to all those that helped over the last couple of weeks whether it be 'reffing', scoring, setting up courts & chairs , supplying cakes or just washing up. All your help is greatly appreciated. The events would not run smoothly without it.
Thank you to all that played in the MAKARA again this year. I hope you all enjoyed yourselves & will be back again next year & to those that did not make it I wish you better health next year.
