One Ball in March

The rain eased up, so the weather was almost nice!

Despite it being Mothering Sunday 8 players turned up for our successful One Ball morning, with a few staying on to the afternoon Golf Croquet.

Hopefully we’ll get a few more for next month’s session, as this will be both our official Opening Day and also our heat for the CA Charity One Ball competition.

February one ball

A lovely day, apart from the temperature!
Nevertheless 5 hardy people came and enjoyed 4 games, plus sausage rolls to warm us up.
Lawn 2 in excellent condition and surprisingly fast – all in all a good day.

At our AGM today the Committee was re-elected unopposed and the subscriptions are unchanged for 2018 (they haven’t changed since 1995!).

Details of the programme for 2018 were discussed, with most of the dates for significant events in the Diary already. We’re going to be one of the host for the Golf Croquet World Championship in 2019 and some initial issues were discussed.

The main focus for our Introduction to Croquet Course will be on ensuring that players enjoy playing AC, by introducing them to Garden Croquet and letting them learn piece-meal what they need to know, rather than intensive coaching. This will be followed up with the general AC playing session on Thursday evenings (free parking!).

Details of our AC and Coaching plans will be circulated shortly.

The trophies for our internal competitions were presented and some of the photos will be published shortly.

First Aid Course

Following the odd accident over the years we thought it would be advisable if more of our members were actually trained to be able to provide First Aid assistance.
So we have organised a dedicated course by the Red Cross, on 10th March 10am-2:30pm at the Stables, Frant (where the AGM is being held) for up to 15 people.
Kate Sander will be handling registrations and providing lunch, at a nominal charge of £10 for this, coffee, tea etc. Although the Red Cross charge for providing this course, we are not asking for members taking part to contribute towards this, as it is clearly a benefit for the club in having more trained First Aiders.

Data Protection

In case you hadn’t noticed, there’s a new General Data Protection Regulation that comes into effect in May 2018. So the Committee has approved a new Privacy Policy to comply with this. 

The policy can be seen in this document.

It will be reflected in the Membership Renewal form which will be sent out shortly.

Twelfth Night greatly enjoyed!

A Happy New Year was celebrated by a significant number of our club members at the home of Kate and Michael Sander, with a considerable sum raised for club funds, including nearly £40 for the donation of a special “Ice Queen” cake by Derek Crocombe!
