Three of our 4 lawns are currently being refurbished. Only one lawn, lawn D, will be available for play until November. See below for club play changes *. Meanwhile arrangements have been made for members to use the lawns at Takapuna Croquet Club from September 3rd for 8 Monday mornings and 8 Wednesdays. Members should arrive at TCC shortly after 09:30, the clubhouse door will be locked at 10:00.

IMPORTANT INFORMATION FOR NORTH SHORE CROQUET CLUB MEMBERS FROM YOUR CAPTAIN.
1. OUR 2018/19 SEASON STARTS ON MONDAY SEPTEMBER 3RD. BUT BECAUSE OUR OWN LAWNS ARE NOT YET READY WE WILL PLAY FOR 8 WEEKS AT TAKAPUNA CROQUET CLUB, 8 AUBURN ST.
Takapuna doors open (for our members or invitees only) at 09:00 and play will continue until mid-day. Both Golf Croquet (3 lawns) and Association (1 lawn) will be on offer. Parking is usually available adjacent to the clubhouse. Please arrive before 10:00 when the doors will be closed for security reasons. Phone Rod on 021 028 45649 if you have any problems.
These Takapuna based club days will take place each Monday and Wednesday morning until the end of October, when we expect our Devonport lawns to be ready again. There will be no charge to NSCC members to play on those days, this arrangement is being paid for by a donation by a North Shore member.
2. GOLF CROQUET INTERCLUB STARTS AGAIN FROM TUESDAY OCTOBER 9th. PLEASE PHONE, EMAIL OR SPEAK TO ROD email@example.com 021 028 45649 IF YOU WOULD LIKE TO PARTICIPATE.
There will likely be about 6 matches, the first 3 will be away, the second 3 at home. We can enter one, two or even three teams. The default day is Tuesday, but games may take place on other days if weather, absence, or convenience allow. Each team consists of 4 players, so each match is played between 4 players on each side. We need 6 players for a team, two reserves in case of sickness/unavailability ... North Shore reached the final last year. That team was made up from Rod (1), Dave B (3), John S (7), Mike McG (8), Charlotte (9), and Ulrike (9), all those members have expressed a wish to play this year, as has Robert Upton. If you would like to play please let Rod know by September 11th, otherwise it will be assumed that you do not wish to enter.
3. THE NORTH SHORE CC GOLF CROQUET WINTER LEVEL SINGLES TOURNAMENT WILL THIS YEAR BE PLAYED DURING OUR 16 CLUB DAYS AT TAKAPUNA CC.
This is a round robin tournament. You need to be prepared to play up to 6 games during September and October. I am deliberately not entering. There are trophies for the winner and the runner up. Last year I won, with Charlotte as runner up. You can put your name on our entry form which will be hanging on the Takapuna notice board from Monday September 3rd. Entries will be accepted during the whole of September.
I wish members an interesting and varied 2018/19 season, my last as captain and indeed as a full member.
