In wonderful weather conditions, 25 players took to the pistes to find the winner of the April Saturday Competition. After two 45 minute doubles games, with teams selected by a draw from the boules buckets, we had three players with the perfect score of 26. Marty, Heike and Ann all scored 13 in each of their games, so it was a count back to determine the winner of the $50 prize pool. Ann had 14 points scores against her in her two games, Marty’s opponents scored 6 in each of his games and Heike only had 7 points scored against her, so it was Heike who took home the prize money. Well done to all participants and thank you for making it a great day.
Then came the Club celebration of our members’ success at last weekend’s Nationals competitions. Van Nguyen and Gavin Scott (with Harold from NSW) took out the Open Men’s Triples Championship and Melissa Scott (with two interstate players) came second in the Open Women’s Triples Championship. Our President, Allan Sanderson, very proudly announced that the win in the Open Men’s Triples Championship is the first Seniors National Championship in the Club’s 26 year history. A complimentary drink and a burger and dessert was enjoyed by all members – thank you to the Committee for organising and supplying these refreshments which made for a great Club celebration.
