Bribie Island Croquet Club "The Sport of All Ages" Join Today

Happenings

DIARY DATES

• AGM – February 19th 2021 (again dependant on Covid restrictions)

SOCIAL DISTANCING Please remember this requirement - 1.5 metres (not 1.5 yards) from any other person.

That is roughly (at least) two arm lengths away from your nearest person.

Remember that the Club is under constant scrutiny and had the police visiting us on both Saturday and Sunday of the 7+ GC club Championships.

Our information is that passers-by (not neighbours) are reporting on us.

Then we had to cope with a report from park users during our GC doubles championships weekend that we were not social distancing off court!

Let us all be conscious of our joint responsibility.

No one wants our club closed by authorities.
