It’s always been one of my favourites and this year was no exception. It was luck year 13 for the West Vancouver Memorial Library Foundation as they held their annual 2009 Mallet Masters Croquet Tournament down at the Ambleside Greens pitch-n-putt. Dressed in their whites, teams took to the courts to play the day away. Later, the champions took to centre court to settle the score as cocktail hour started. A beautiful dinner, provided by Glowbal catering, was then followed by a vibrant live auction with golf packages, wine packages and more up for grabs.
