This year the Christmas & Presentation evening coinsided the official opening of the third lawn.
Nola McRae, Ruth Wilson and their hard working elves did a spectacular job in organizing the dinner which included a fully decorated clubhouse.
Presentations were made and there was a familiar pattern, winner on full court – Jim Nicholls, winner on half court – Peter Lloyd, bridesmaid (runner up) Nola Scott.
Ruth Wilson was made a Life member of the club. Ruth has been served on the committee for many of the past 14 years, as well managing the school’s program. Ruth has volunteered much of her time to the club, be it for hosting card parties, organising morning teas or assisting with group bookings.
This year’s Bess Webster Memorial Trophy was awarded to Jim Nicholls. Apart from the secretarial work and newsletter composing, Jim has been involved in the preparation, levelling, seeding of the 3rd lawn, representing the club at NSW council meetings and somehow still finds time to maintain his form to play at the top level of the sport at state and national competitions.
All in all a delightful evening was had by all.
Wishing all members a Merry Christmas and a Happy, Prosperous and Croquet filled New Year.
