Prospect Petanque Club hosted Round 5 of the State Triples Competition on Sunday 30 May in beautiful weather. There were 27 teams from six Clubs and they played to 11 points for the first three games before lunch and then to 13 points after lunch. The final games were hard fought and had to be played under lights, with Adelaide Hills Petanque Club taking out the honours for both first and third place, with FAB (Ferral Aussie Boulistes) Petanque Club second.
The table after this round has Eastern Suburbs in first place with 216 points, followed by Club De Petanque D’Adelaide (167 points) and Adelaide Hills Petanque have moved from fourth place to third after their successful day at Prospect.
Round 6, the final round for this current League competition, will be held at Gawler Petanque Club on 27 June.
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.
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.
Weather looks to be fine but cool. We are having glazed corn beef, slow roasted onions, and slaw in rolls. And we are having fresh baked pizza for supper. Sounds goodish, hope to see everyone there. Cheers Alan M
