Following mention at the AGM of declining numbers appearing at club days this season, a reassuringly large crowd ignored the rain and wind to participate in the last Reigate Croquet event of 2018, the Christmas Cracker.
Played as an alternate, short form of golf on half lawns, high handicappers were partnered with varying low handicappers for each game, with no long waits for anybody between games due to diligent management from Martin.
The eventual winners were Lorna and Doug, who beat Sue and Alan in the final, while the fancy dress prizes went to John Bristow and Tricia.
Amazing catering once again from Freda topped off a great event, before she and Sue were both cheered due to their upcoming entries into new decades.
Club days like this are always better with more people, so let’s aim to keep attendance high throughout next year!
