Prospect had three teams in Adelaide’s Committee Cup, with Gavin and Melissa qualifying for the Principal competition after lunch. They played their semi-final against Garry and Selina of Novar Gardens and went down 13 v 8 in a very hard fought game. The Final was to be contested by Garry and Selina and Jean Luc and Ryan, also of Novar Gardens.
The afternoon’s competition was impacted by a large tree crashing down in the nearby Tree Climb and, by some miracle, no one was injured. There were at least three small children who had to be retrieved from the platform which surrounded the tree, in very close proximity to where the break occurred. The tree could have ‘kicked back’, or broken in a different place, or fallen to the ground (none of which occurred) and there would certainly have been a very different outcome.
Well done to Club De Petanque D’Adelaide for a wonderful, well organised and hospitable day.
