Success in Referee Exam

Congratulations to three people who successfully passed their Level 2 Referee Exam in Rockhampton on 4th May. They are Lyn Christensen and Kath Hayes from Capricorn Coast and Cheryl Kele from Rockhampton. They will be assessed on their practical knowledge of the rules at the State Gateball Championships to be held 17-19th August at Toombul Croquet Club.

While writing about Rockhampton, the news from Lynne Farry has not been good. She has been visiting doctors, having x-rays, CT scans and visiting an orthopaedic surgeon. Lynne will be having a knee replacement on 4th June. We all would wish for a successful outcome for the operation and a speedy recovery.

Below is her short report. Since she was the Tournament Manager of the Rockhampton Challenge, she has finished her final task and found time to submit this report below. Thanks Lynne and all the best.
