Kevin Carter writes:

Dear All -

You have all been associated with running heats for this year's Charity
One-Ball Championship. The final took place on saturday and I thought you
might like early sight of the result. Below is the report I have prepared
for the CA website and Gazette.

What I would highlight is that 360 players participated in 27 heats and we
raised £2678 for the Breast Cancer Campaign. This is a great achievement and
I thank you all very much for you own efforts in making this happen.

Equally important, I hope all your members had fun and will play again next
year.

- Kevin; 9.5.11

Thanks to John Gosney for preparing 6 lawns for the event and to Chris Constable for managing it and providing the soup and roll lunch - delicious even if she couldn't quite remember what was in it!

Death of Gordon Verinder - 17/02/2011 @ 22:11
I am sorry to report that Gordon Verinder has died at the grand old age of 94.

Gordon and his wife Sheila ( who died a couple of years ago) were members of the Club for many years.

Death of Ken Pascall - 15/02/2011 @ 10:23

Ken Pascall

I am writing to pass on the sad news that Ken Pascall, who was admitted  to hospital in Haywards Heath only a week ago with pains in his arms, then deteriorated very rapidly, and has now passed away.  Janet was with him in his final days.  Both Ken and Janet have been keen Association players at Southwick taking part in Jamborees and in the alternate stroke doubles sessions most Wednesday mornings (apart from the coldest ones.) Janet describes croquet and SCCC as probably Ken's first loves and they counted themselves lucky to have found a game and club which suited them as a couple so well.  The funeral will be in Croydon at Ken's "home" church after the 28th February; details will be published, in due course, in the Telegraph.
