Golf croquet: Well the year has started off with time getting away quickly with our first Luncheon being February 5 at the Forbes Sport and Recreation Club. For those who have celebrated their Birthday during our January break and to those whose Birthdays are in February. Best wishes to all. Birthday celebrations go to Cherylin Cole, Colleen Liebich, Elizabeth McLean, Evelyn Mahlo and Bob Murray for January and to Mary Hodges, Jill Rubie and Caryl Slattery for February.

It was great to see Libby Smart back on the fields after a break where she has been on holiday at Echuca with her daughter Jennie. Never the less she has not lost her touch by again winning all three games.
