All-England GC Handicap qualifier

Congratulations to Joan Grove (winner) and Elaine Sainsbury (runner-up) for their success in the recent qualifying event for the All-England GC Handicap national tournament. Here is Joan receiving the Richard Harris memorial trophy donated by Robin Thornton.

 

Visit to Inshore Lifeboat Centre

One of our club members, Noel Stimson, has arranged a guided visit to East Cowes Lifeboat Centre. The Inshore Lifeboat Centre is where all the RNLI’s inshore lifeboats are built, serviced, repaired and refitted. Noel tells us it sounds very much like a boys’ visit, but can assure us that the girls find it just as impressive and enjoyable! The tour is arranged for 10am on Thursday 26/07 and will last about 90 minutes – please contact Noel to book a place.

Association Croquet Open Tournaments

It was a busy week recently with two Association Croquet open tournaments taking place, run by tournament manager Cliff Jones.

First was the 3-day Mary Robinson Challenge Shield handicap event, eventually won by Geoff Johnson from Watford (reprising his 2016 victory), with Richard Peperell runner-up. This was followed by the Isle of Wight Championship Bowl, a 2-day tournament using advanced rules, won by Robert Alexander.

Many thanks to all the helpers who contributed to making the week a success and we look forward to seeing all our visiting players again next year.
