MELEE WINNERS ANNOUNCED – Summer and Autumn CompetitionsThe winners of the Summer and Autumn Melee Competitions were announced at Wednesday evening’s start to the next season’s competition. David received first prize in the Summer Competition, followed by Brett (Cheryl) second and Marilyn third. The Autumn winners were Van (first), Melissa (2nd) and Brett (3rd). Well done everyone.The number of competitors was significantly down on the usual number, possibly due to the weather forecast, but we were lucky to only have a very short rain shower and the usual two games were able to be completed.Thanks are due to Yvonne and Jacques for catering for us, with Dutch Pea and Ham soup, with croutons (a very hearty and delightfully tasty feast), followed by pancakes with strawberry sauce and ice cream. A wonderful winter menu……….and, to add to our feast, Melissa shared her birthday with us with a cheesecake for sharing. We all went home suitably nourished and due to do some extra steps!! Thanks also to anyone who assisted with running the Melee and/or with the kitchen clean up. See MoreSee Less

CONGRATULATIONS TO OUR NEWEST LIFE MEMBER – MARTYN VERDONKThank you Jan for the report and well deserved Marty 🌟 During the Annual General Meeting, held in the Clubrooms on Wednesday 27 July, Life Membership was conferred on Marty Verdonk. Marty has been a Committee member since the inception of the Club, was Treasurer for some six years and continues to assist in so many ways. He ensures there is something for people to eat on a Wednesday evening, and organises the food at least twice each month. Marty also puts out and takes in the rubbish bins, and he also ensures the lawns are cut very regularly, particularly if there is to be a competition or function at the Club and he wages a constant war with any weeds that come up in the pistes. He willingly puts his hand up for projects that the Committee undertakes and maintains the clubhouse indoor painting with patch ups when marks are detected.Congratulations and thanks, Marty, and we all look forward to your company (and assistance) for many more years to come.

THE 2022-2023 INTERCLUB COMPETITION KICKS OFF WITH A FULL HOUSE – Sunday 24 July 2022 It was exciting to see such a huge number of players turn out at Prospect Petanque Club today for the first competition of the new season of the South Australian Petanque League Interclub Competition. It was the 20th time the competition was held, a record in the Petanque world of the southern hemisphere. We were very fortunate with the weather with very little wind and just a few drops of rain towards the end of the day.Thirty three triples teams battled it out in two pools for three untimed games before lunch, up to 11 points and a further two untimed games after lunch up to 13 points. Prospect’s team of Van, Ha and Gavin topped the morning competition and went on to take out the Silver Medal after playing the Gold Medal winners, Deb, Raja and Lionel of Eastern Suburbs Petanque (ESP). The Bronze Medals were won by Rada, Dom and Kenny of Club De Petanque d’Adelaide. Medals were presented by Stan Wilson, President of the South Australian Petanque League.So, after just one round of the competition, top of the ladder is ESP with 48 points, followed by Prospect with 42 points and third is Club De Petanque d’Adelaide with 30 points.Many thanks and congratulations are due to all of the Prospect members who assisted with the preparation, facilitation and clearing up for this event. Special thanks to those who managed the kitchen and delivered a three course meal to such a big crowd. See MoreSee Less
