Well done to Club de Petanque D’Adelaide for persevering with their 2+1 Competition today in very challenging weather conditions. There was a determined attitude from 36 players as they donned their wet weather gear for three 40 minute games before lunch, and then finals after lunch. Games went to 11 to shorten the time players were in the wet.
The Principale semi-finalists were Gavin, Van and Ha (Prospect) v Peter,HaeJung and Rada (ESP/Adelaide) and Dom, Alain and Joan (Adelaide) v Judy, Giselle and Jean-Luc (Novar Gardens) and the Consolante competition comprised Fran, Dee and Shannon (Adelaide), Lee, Denise and Jan (Prospect), Pete, Sue and Rob and Allan, Sandy and Lynda (Adelaide).
The Novar Gardens team of Judy, Giselle and Jean-Luc took out the Principale prize from Prospect’s Ha, Van and Gavin in a hard fought game which was 7v7 at one point to go to 12 v 11, with Prospect ahead. Then came Jean-Luc’s boule to take out the game 13 v 11 for the Novar Gardens team.
In the Consolante division Lee, Denise and Jan of Prospect took home the wine when they defeated Allan, Sandy and Lynda of Adelaide 13 v 11.
A challenging day weather-wise, but enjoyable nonetheless. Thank you, Club de Petaque D’Adelaide for wonderful hosting yet again.
