Mine Are Bigger Than Yours!
By JP Ernst
It is always interesting to know a little about the pistes prepared for large international events.

Teams at the 2015 World Championships held in Thailand were confronted with a terrain covered with stones as large as a coch.  And the lesson here is to play on whatever piste you are confronted with!  ⛔

St. Kilda - What does she mean to you?

Read what Sandra Brown writes . . .

Quite late one evening after dining at Ristorante Massoni, my husband and I arrived back to our car parked on the kerb in Fitzroy Street, and were unable to start our car’s engine.  RACV summoned, only to find some scoundrel had lifted the bonnet and stolen vital parts of the engine while we dined.

Read what the Critics have to say . . .

“As memorable as My Life in Kenya by my best pal Lionel Hardcastle.”

"A successful attempt to mash a restaurant guide and sports report into one short novel."

The 2016 St. Kilda Tropical Winter Promotional Tournament   By  Sandra Brown

Despite being Winter, we only played in a little rain and biting cold on a couple of days, the remainder were brisk, but often quite sunny.  Some sixty players took part across the eight weeks of the tournament.  All grateful to have a good reason to get out of bed on a cold Winter’s morning.
