13th – 15th October 2017 may seem a long way away but the first planning meeting for the 2017 championships for was held at Bateau Bay this weekend. Representatives from the local EDSACC club including President, Ian McKinnon, met with NSW Gateball Chairs, Kerrie and Judy, and National Director of Gateball, John Park. John Compton, Gateball NSW’s contact person on the CNSW Board was an observer.
The meeting was squeezed in at lunch time during the Hunter Region’s fascinating Triathlon. Players from EDSACC, Maitland and Newcastle NP clubs play each other at Gateball, Ricochet and Golf Croquet. The club winning the most games is declared the winner. In 2016 Newcastle won the challenge.
Kerrie, Judy and John will be seeking volunteers in the wider gateball community so that the work for this event can be shared.
Please email NSWgateball@gmail.com and firstname.lastname@example.org with offers of help or specific suggestions for the event.
