OUR ANNUAL GENERAL MEETING WAS HELD THIS EVENING – with a Raffle to raise funds for THE LONGEST TABLE

We had a good attendance at the AGM, with reports presented and Office Bearers and Committee Members elected. Members were treated to a complimentary hamburger, cooked by Marty and Michael, followed by a scrummy dessert of Waffles, Caramelised Banana and Ice Cream, thanks to Sophie.

During the evening Wendy sold raffle tickets to raise funds for Cancer Research as part of The Longest Table initiative. Wendy supplied three hampers for prizes – Wine, Food and Mystery. The Wine hamper was won by James, Gavin won the Food hamper and Yvonne the Mystery hamper. We are all waiting to see Yvonne on Saturday to find out what was in her hamper.

Wendy’s daughter, Karen, is hoping to raise $5000 and you can help her do this at https://www.thelongesttable.com.au/table/a-little-bit-fancy-degustation/

A GREAT PLACE TO CELEBRATE

Wyatt, a very happy two year old, and his family and friends, had a wonderful time when they used Prospect Petanque Clubrooms to celebrate his 2nd birthday recently. It had a Construction theme as Wyatt loves trucks and his guests were able to “demolish” a building (made of cardboard boxes decorated as a brick wall) with the basketball that was hanging from the pergola roof. Lots of time was also spent bulldozing the sand with the many dump trucks and dozers. If the children tired of the construction activities, they went next door to the playground.

The guests wore colourful hi vis vests and hard hats and the decorations all followed the construction theme.

Prospect Petanque members assisted with the bar service and heating of the afternoon tea.

Great to see our Clubrooms so much enjoyed.

MAY SATURDAY COMPETITION WINNER

We had a good turnout in beautiful autumn weather for the May Saturday Competition, with 16 members competing and two players scoring a perfect score in both games. Both Robyn and Van won both of their games to score 26 points, with Robyn taking home the booty after the count back as she had 2 points scored against her while Van had 10 points against him over the two games. It was the first time that both Van and Robyn had been a part of the Saturday Competition.

Alison and Heike were close behind with 25 points each, though Alison’s handicapped score was 24 points.

Thanks must go to David for getting things going and to Sue for her score and time keeping.

Our next Saturday Competition will be held on 19 June at 3.00 pm, with registrations by 2.55 pm.

ALLAN AND ROBERT SHARE THE PRIZE AT PROSPECT PETANQUE’S THIRD SATURDAY COMPETITION

Fourteen members contested the third Saturday Competition in perfect weather this afternoon. We had two players, Allan and Robert, win both of their games to score 26 points and they both had 8 points scored against them. It was decided that they would share the prizemoney and both now have a one point handicap to be deducted from their score in future Saturday competitions. There are now four players with a 1 shot handicap – Alison, Marilyn, Allan and Robert.

Our next Saturday competition will be held on Saturday 15 May, commencing at 3.00 pm with registrations by 2.55 pm. The pistes remain open for anyone who does not want to compete and would like a game.
