Message from the Board

With great excitement many of us have been following the World Croquet Federation AC World Championships played in Wellington NZ over the last 2 weeks.

Players Alison Sharpe (Killara), Nick Chapman (Canberra), Stephen Richards (Canberra), Alan Honey (Queanbeyan), Tim Murphy (Canberra), Trevor Bassett (Independent), Alan Walsh (Cammeray) and Jim Nicholls (Wagga Wagga) all proudly represented their Clubs, CNSW and Australia in this event.

In just being at the Worlds all players have demonstrated their strategic and tactical mastery of the game providing inspiration to others.

On behalf of the CNSW Board and all of the CNSW Croquet community, I express a hearty congratulations to all these players for their showing in this highly competive international field. Special congratulations to Jim Nicholls and Stephen Richards who both qualified for the final knockout round.

Brenda Wild
CNSW Chair

Tony McArthur from Sutherland Croquet Club has filled the casual vacancy on the Board caused by the resignation of Nerida Taylor. This means that there are now 5 CNSW Directors which is the minimum number required by the constitution. Tony is well know to the croquet community and was a past member of the CNSW Executive and also a Director on the inaugural CNSW Board.

This week, Tricia Vierra and Nerida Taylor have resigned as CNSW Directors. Tricia has relocated from the Hunter Valley to Devonport in Tasmania and is no longer a member of CNSW. The Board wish her all the best and hope that she and Andrew, her partner, enjoyed their sojourn to the 'Big Island'. Nerida, the Chair, has resigned to free up time to pursue her interests outside of croquet, which will involve family and travel, but will remain involved in some of the initiatives she has started.

This now leaves CNSW critically short of Directors and it would be helpful if some of our members could see their way to becoming a Director, even if it is for a limited period.
