CROQUET mallets replaced paddles for a successful fundraising day for the Titivators Dragon Boat Club.

In spite of the weather and the NRL grand final, which cut short the program, the Titivators had a highly social and successful day, raising about $800 at the C.ex Urunga Croquet Club yesterday.

Joining the Titivators and others at the fundraiser were members of the Locating Artillery Association Inc. Northern NSW branch and their wives, who are on the Coffs Coast this weekend for a reunion 40 years after returning from the Vietnam War.

Titivators' member Maureen Shaw said the croquet fundraiser was the third the club had held, but the first to raise funds for the running costs of the sporting and breast cancer survivor club.
