Trebes Cup 2017

The Trebes Trophy is a unique event where the Men and Women play separate qualifying games, five of (5) including semi final and  grand finals for Men and Women, then the winning Men’s and Women’s teams play off for the Trophy, some wine and a few $s cash.

After a tough battle the Women’s team were leading 12/9 needing just one more point for victory, but the Men’s team prevailed with a bit of luck and skill in playing the right shots were able to take the victory, and make it two years in a row at winning this prestigious event on the SAPL Calendar.

Special thanks to Terry and The FAB team for a well organised day.

 

Men At Work

Special thanks to Trevor Palmer, Marty Verdonk, Michael Frodyma and Brett Williams for taking on the task to ‘tidy up’ the Sound System cabling on the Northern Wall of the Club Rooms.

This effort certainly enhances the presentation of our Clubrooms for Petanque Special Occasions and Hire Functions.

Well done team.

Melee match for the 2017 winter season

The final Prospect Petanque Melee match for the 2017 winter season was played on Wednesday September 6.

Despite it being spring, the cold winter weather persisted, although brightened up by a full moon occasionally visible through the clouds. Almost twenty members enjoyed the night, including Tory and Lionel making a welcome return home from their international season.

Chef Alan served chicken schnitzel from the bbq, and John brought along a wonderful batch of scones that Heike had made for us. The results of the winter Melee will be announced at the first match of the new season on October 4. Alan suggests that there may be a crab feast that night, if conditions are favourable.

With great relish, Alan announced that he had successfully picked Melbourne to come 9th in the AFL draw. However, so had Wendy and David Palmer, and so the prize money was divided three ways. For the rest of us: better luck next time.
