On Tuesday evening, 15 May, we accepted a challenge to compete against the Rotary Club of Six Towns (Stoke on Trent) in the first round of the District 1210 Golf Croquet Tournament. Six Rotarians from our club formed our team, President John Scarpello (team captain); Derek Broom; Ron Lucas; Carol Reddish; Dagmar Rubin; and Peter Rolfe. We played in the delightful grounds of Queen's Park, Longton, on a former bowling green. And our team was successful.John Scarpello and Carol Reddish won their match 4-2, as did Dagmar Rubin and Peter Rolfe. The old men of the team, Past Governors Derek Broome and Ron Lucas only scraped through 4-3 in their match but the net result was a three matches to nil victory for Newcastle. The tournament was ably organised by Six Towns captain and President Elect Sandra Matthews and afterwards Six Towns generously hosted refreshments for everyone in the Park Inn nearby.A jolly good evening was enjoyed by us all and we agreed this was Rotary fellowship at its best.
