South Aussies provide a great performance at the ACA Presidents Eights

This year four men and three women applied and were accepted to play in the ACA Presidents 8’s trophy held in Cairnlea this February.  It is a great competition to compete in and to test your skills against players from interstate.

The players are positioned into four blocks of eight according to their world rankings – the fourth block being only for women.

In block two Barry Haydon came 2nd and Ron McBride came 3rd.

In block three Mick Reidy came 2nd and Barry Jennings came 8th.

In the women’s block Kate Logan came 1st, Shirlene McBride 2nd and Karen Magee 3rd. (this is the 3rd year in a row a SA women has won this plate)


SA Golf Croquet Gold Medal

This event was originally meant to be a 3 day event and have one day of qualifying. All was great, we had plenty of entries and needed to hold the qualifier. Then the weather, work commitments, injury and illness struck. We wound up having a 2 day event with 10 participants. Glenunga superbly managed it and it was supported by Bernie Pfitzner, Barry Haydon and Shirlene McBride as referees. The players thank all of these people and the spectators.

Greg Rowberry from Norwood won, with Ronald McBride from Victor Harbor runner-up and Karen Magee from Brighton in third place.

GC Presidents Trophy

This event had to be rescheduled and modified due to hot weather. The doubles unfortunately had to be dropped and the singles were played in afternoon to evenings over three cooler midweek days. This rescheduling prevented some of the original entrants from participating and thus adding to their required qualifying events for State Selection.

Brighton Croquet Club managed the event and Referees included Bernie Pfitzner, Graeme Thomas and Robert Weaver.

Barry Haydon from Hyde Park won the event with Ronald McBride of Victor Harbor runner-up and Kate Logan from Victor Harbor in a tight finish for third.
