It gives me great pleasure to let you all know that we received news on the Grant for $3850.00 from the Ballarat City Council
which I put in for a few months ago, and was beginning to think it
had been unsuccessful, but this week Alma gave me the good news
that we had been awarded the cost for the Trailer i.e. $3850.00 so we can now move on and get the refit done.

TOUR OF THE SNAKE VALLEY – HADDON REGION
Friday 16th September we awoke to an overcast and drizzly day. Being rather pessimistic I packed a
spare set of clothes and headed off to Snake Valley. By the time we had arrived at our destination the
sun was shining and a group of twenty riders were keen to mount their cycles. We hadn’t proceeded far
down the road when Ann noticed that Bob’s rear wheel was wobbling.
Keith observed that the wheel was buckled due to a broken spoke. Due to Keith’s skill Bob was soon on
his way again. Thankyou Keith. We had a really delightful ride in the morning, mostly along bush
tracks and it was lovely to see the shadows of the gum trees across the track. We had a quick break at
the Smythesdale Gardens, before proceeding to the Woady Yaloak Catchment Reserve at Haddon for
lunch. This was a particularly pleasant location to visit.
Having satisfied our hunger pangs we were on our way again. The early part of the afternoon we
travelled along the rail trail before detouring along a few country roads and eventually arriving back at
the Snake Valley Hall. The beautiful Spring weather, the lushness of the countryside, the singing of the
birds all contributed to making it a most enjoyable ride. Another bonus was the fact that a number of
wattle trees were flowering. At the end of the ride we very much appreciated the coffee and cakes that
were served by Chris’s wife, Jan.
Thank you Ann and Tony for organizing a ride that everyone very much enjoyed.
12 members, after the Monday ride, went over the Croquet Club in Gillies Street to try their skills at a
game of Croquet. We were met by three of the ladies from the club and they were lovely ladies, very
helpful in explaining how the game was played and showing us how to use the mallet etc.
We were grouped in fours and set off to our allotted green. I can only tell you about the group that I
was in for obvious reasons. There was Alan, Joan, Stephen and myself. All started off fine, Stephen
was the first to hit off, and did quite well, as before the game he did not see himself as a croquet player!.
Joan was the next to take her shot followed by me and then Alan. As we were just getting warmed up
and ‘feeling our way’ you might say, Stephen was lucky enough to hit the ball through the hoop. The
next hoop was also taken by Stephen and by now he was getting a little excited and I might add serious
about the game; oh I hadn’t mentioned that whilst riding, he and I had sort of a bet on who would win.
I told him I would blow him away! From this point on he was only interested in knocking our balls out,
but then on the next hoop he had first shot and got a ‘hole in one’ if that’s the term you use in croquet,
just sheer luck. We couldn’t believe it, but he just strutted around that green like a peacock’. Joan, Alan
and I each won a hoop each, so we all did very well considering. After our game we all went into the
clubrooms and were treated to a lovely afternoon tea. Thank you Pamela for organising the afternoon. Alma.
