2017 Pot of Gold


The Pot of Gold Carnival was played on Monday and Tuesday 21st and 22nd August, attracting teams from as far away as North Haven, and Newcastle. Day 1, the air was filled with energy and excitement, as twenty Teams took to the Greens in the hopes of a win. After the first two games some were looking forward to four wins, and some a little less enthusiastic after one, or two losses.

Day 2 everyone returned with renewed enthusiasm and the hope to keep winning, or those who had losses, to turn things around and try for a win. At the end of the day the raffles were drawn, and it was nice to see two of the prizes, going to the Teams who came from North Haven and Newcastle. Match read out the winners:-

Monday a.m. Jeanine Vigar and her Team from Everglades

Monday p.m. Pam Donnelly and her Team from Ettalong

Tuesday a.m. Tess Koutsellis and her Team from Terrigal

Tuesday p.m. Maureen Kerr and her Team from Ettalong

4th prize went to Dawn Burrows and her Team from Umina Beach

3rd prize to Coral Allenby and her Team from Avoca Beach

2nd prize to Jennifer Junge and her composite Team from Telarah, Cardiff, and Wallsend

And after a huge drum roll

1st prize Judy King and her composite team from Terrigal, Bateau Bay, and Avoca Beach.

Thank you to all who helped to make this Carnival a success. Our hard working Match girls, Gayle Wise and Christine Bowman. Val Brownlie and her band of helpers, who again served us a lovely lunch, helping to sustain us for the second game each day, and our hard working Committee ladies, and the girls who manned the Trading Table.

Hope to see you all back at Ettalong in 2018.
