Croquetwest held their annual AGM at the Belmont Croquet Club on Saturday and there was a great turnout. After a quick lunch break, we then held our trophy presentation.
Samantha Rowe, Parliamentary Secretary to the Minister, the Hon David Templeman was in attendance and kindly assisted with the presentation of awards. A full list of winners can be found below and previous winners can be found on the Croquetwest Awards page.
Halls Head players had a great season highlighted by both Inga and Brian receiving the GC Most Improved Awards!
Expressions of interest are now sought for the 2024 President’s Golf Croquet Eights, to be held 9‑11February 2024.
This year, to assist the Aust GC Team Squad prepare for 2025, the top 2 Eights will be played at the Northern Tasmanian Croquet Centre in Launceston.
Depending on entries, we will also play up to 4 more Eights at the Victorian Croquet Centre at Cairnlea; including a Women’s Eight. Note that we do not intend to play more than 4 Eights at Cairnlea again…
Close of EoI has been brought forward to 17 December, to facilitate booking accommodation & travel.
Players have the option to not go to Launceston if picked in the top 2 Eights, but will not then be offered a place in another Eight at Cairnlea (you get better competition if you play in your correct Eight.)
We have re-introduced the reimbursement scheme, to encourage players from further away to come to the Eights. The CA Board will determine entry fees for 2024 shortly.
Interested players should send their Expression of Interest, by cob Sunday 17 December, via email to email@example.com Please include your name, ACA ID, Club & your contact phone number.
Don’t forget the AGM and Trophy Day Presentation Saturday.
