Wet and Cold Millenium
It was a rather wet (with regular heavy showers) and, at times, a cold day on Saturday 10th May when 9 players from 5 clubs joined in the North West Federation one day Golf Croquet Millenium tournament at Heaton Park.
The format was all play all with a total of 36 games during the day. By the early afternoon there were 4 players who could possible go on to win the tournament. However as the day progressed it was in the last round of games that the eventual winner emerged.
Brian Storey already had 7 wins and we were waiting for the outcome of Don Williamson’s last game against Graham Good. In the end Don beat Graham on the Golden Hoop to give him 7 wins. As Don had beaten Brian in their match Don was declared the winner.
Tournament Manager, David Barrett, presented Don with the Golf Croquet Millenium trophy – Congratulations Don, and to all the players for surviving the inclement weather and giving us a good day of golf croquet.
