We are deeply saddened to have to let you know that Mike Mulvihill passed away on Wednesday 7 February.
Please remember Mike for the great things he did for Petanque in SA, especially as Founder the Prospect Club and for the SA State League in its early days, also his many team representations for SA and Australia on the International scene.
To all who knew Mike he was a genuine good bloke who would go out of his way for you.especially if you were a Crows fan.
Our Sport in SA has lost one of its dedicated enthusiasts and a pioneer of many of the things we do today in our great game.

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).

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.

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.
Brett and Janet at Bunnings
Special thanks to Janet Jenkin, Marty Verdonk, Michael Frodyma, Brett Williams and Allan Sanderson for their help on the night.
