We have changed our start time during the summer weather to 9.30am, probably only till Easter, because the hall becomes too uncomfortable for playing.
So - to everyone who plays, or hopes to play at some stage - we begin at 9.30am!!
We complete our year with our breakup game on December 10, followed by lunch at the Golf Club. If partners wish to attend, they will be required to pay the cost of the meal, but numbers have to be finalised very soon.
Our games will recommence, after a Christmas recess, on January 14, again at 9.30 am. This is because so many players are eager to resume as early as possible, and don’t wish to have an extended holiday break. Which is wonderful, of course, and shows the level of commitment to our great game!
We had a beaut time when we played recently in Rutherglen. Both Colleen and Brian were there, and we were delighted they could make the effort, as Colleen is battling cancer, and is undergoing treatment for that, while Brian is trying ever so hard to overcome his knee problems, and possibly will never play again. But he has not lost his power of speech or sense of humour and will be available to assist with umpiring training if needed. We certainly send them both our love and prayers for better health in the New Year, so they can continue working with Lifeballers all over the place, as they have done so selflessly during past years.
So, we look forward to 2019, still wondering where 2018 went!..........
