It was a week for participation in the croquet games by some visitors to Narooma, so boosting the numbers involved and providing stiff competition, in both association and golf croquet, to the regular players. Jean Phillips was the local who held her own and figured in three winning games. The guest players put some classic ‘jump shots’ on display and included:-
• Graham Innocent from Forster, NSW and his spectator sister Janet from England.
• Margaret McMaster (figuring in three winning games) and Denny Reidy, both from Toronto, NSW.
• Lance Neubaur from Maryborough, QLD (figuring in three winning games).
The results were:
