Croquetwest Webmaster

EXPRESSIONS OF INTEREST

Croquetwest is seeking expressions of interest from within the croquet community for the role of Webmaster of its website, to continue building upon the great work of our previous webmasters.

The Association’s website is a vital communication vehicle for our sport to clubs, members and friends of croquet.

The Webmaster is responsible for the coordination of updates of information on the site at the direction of the Croquetwest Committee of Management, the posting of relevant results & events as well as news & stories submitted by clubs and members.

Ideally the Webmaster will have an interest in the promotion of croquet & knowledge of the game along with appropriate technical & communication skills to format, arrange & post stories and information onto the site in a timely & regular manner.

Currently the role requires on average 3-5 hours a week, usually a couple of hours early in a week to provide an update on key national, state & local events along with results. Then later in the week posting stories, news items & images submitted by clubs or members. Obviously there is flexibility in how these tasks are undertaken.

Gary, our most recent Webmaster has kindly indicated his willingness to assist the incoming Webmaster with familiarisation & transition into the role.

If you are interested in contributing to croquet in Western Australia through this role you are requested to indicate your interest in being considered by advising the Secretary of Croquetwest , Brian Hadley at croquetwest81@gmail.com by 7 August 2024.

Croquetwest GC State B Grade Doubles

Busselton was pleased to host the event that was last played in 2010.Eight teams entered and the format decided on was a Round Robin, with  a knockout based on the top 4 playing for the Championship and teams finishing 5th to 8th competing for the Plate. The knockout games were 19 point games, the first experience for some of the players, but they took to it readily and adjusted well.

The weather forecast wasn’t encouraging, but fortunately it turned out to be wrong, with little rain, but blustery winds on the Saturday caused a few problems.

Games were competitive, with plenty of single point wins, but  played in a friendly manner. The Championship Semis were 10-9 and 10-8, with Wendy Collins and Graeme Davies from Dunsborough going through to meet Dianne and Judith in the Final. Dianne and Judith got off to a great start. Wendy and Graeme fought back well,but steady play from Dianne and Judith kept them at bay, and they were 8-5 up when the timer went.

Congratulations to Dianne and Judith on becoming the State B Grade Champions, the first in 14 years. Here’s hoping this Tournament now remains as an annual event on the Croquetwest Calendar.”
