The outing was held at Penicuik House Estate on Saturday 9th July, 2016. As last year, numerous weather forecasts were checked and phone calls made before it was decided to go ahead with the croquet in the afternoon. Fortunately, the weather turned out to be quite good, with only one stop for rain, and a slight breeze kept most of the midges away.
The croquet was played in the usual good spirits (aided by some Pimms and beers) with lots of laughter. Despite having played for several years, our standard of play has not improved!! The competition was close with Elaine Lambie & Jim Cowper, Pam Ramsay & Andrew Lambie, and Margaret Carr & George Johnstone all tying for second place, just behind the winners Janette Lambie & Dave Carr.
Many thanks to Barbara and her committee for organising the day and to Ronnie Hope and his crew for setting up the lawns and tents.
