Tony Smith, a member of the Gosnells Croquet Club, passed away on June the 2nd after a long battle with cancer at the age of 83.
Tony joined the club in 2005 and was a stalwart, long-serving member and was Vice President for many years. We shall all miss his dry sense of humour and generosity.

The croquet community will be deeply shocked to hear that Olive Cannam of the Busselton Club has passed away suddenly from a heart attack whilst in Bunbury.
