Prospect Spring Fair

Prospect Petanque was invited to take part in the Come and Try at the Prospect Spring Fair. This year, on October 28, the Fair was held at the Broadview Oval. The larger venue than in the past, and the fine weather, made it a very pleasant day.

When he stopped by for a chat, we complimented Prospect Mayor David  O’Loughlin on the success of the Fair.

We had an hour slot at midday to demonstrate our game, which although on grass, worked well enough for the purpose. While we did not attract an overwhelming number of participants, the two lads in the photo spent a lot of time and showed keen interest. We were represented by President Allan, Marty, Janet and Mike, Richard, Geoff, David (Wilson), Denise (McCann), Mike (Mulvihill) and myself (Kym).

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.

Promotion at Bunnings Prospect

Prospect Petanque recently did a promotion at the Bunnings Prospect Store to support their Fathers day promotion..Lots of fun things for the local families to do including giving Petanque a go.

Lots of interest, its amazing how quick the kids pick up the game and do well.

One early teen male was so impressed with his practice form he threw out the challenge to President Allan Sanderson for a one on one contest..It took Allan all his wily skills to keep the young fella at bay.

The Club gave out a substantial number of our new Brochures encouraging Mums  Dads and Kids to attend our Club.
