Moving on to 121 years

Saturday 14th October 2023 our Club celebrated its 120th year since formation, making us the oldest club in the Gippsland Croquet Association--with 113 years at the Oak street site. In conjunction with Seniors Month we held our annual Open Day and the Drouin community was invited to come and try croquet. President Barbara Mitchell along with Baw Baw Shire Mayor Annemarie Mc Cabe and our Life Member Nannette Fry cut a birthday cake to commemorate this historical occasion for the Club. WOW what an achievement and still growing steadily.

FRIENDLY AND FUN FOR TWELVE DECADES!

Drouin Croquet Club has been a place where people have supported one another through good times and bad times. We formed just two years after Australia became an independent nation (can you imagine what THOSE conversations were like around the courts and club-room?!). Our members would have cared for each other as sons and daughters left for war, and would have joyously celebrated together if they returned.

FICI FOLIA 2024

Sunday 4th Feb. 2024 the Club held its annual charity day this year in very hot conditions. Numbers were down on previous years and three games were played on half courts. Vicky Rogers won the special effort Coles/Myer $50 voucher donated through Lynda Quayle. Players came along all wearing something red for the occasion. Due to such hot conditions the last round was abandoned and players retired to the cool of the clubhouse for a refreshing afternoon tea. The winner on the day was Cris Musgrove (Drouin) with a total of 29 hoops won, and President Barbara Mitchell presented him with the 2024 Fici Folia medal. The Club presented their Cheque for $500 to Captain Keith Cook of the Hallora & District Fire Brigade|DrouinSouth Thursday 8th Feb. A great fun day thanks to all who participated.
