Dan is our May Saturday Competition Winner – Dan, playing only his second Saturday Competition took out the honours today from 28 other competitors. A record number of players registered today, making the prize money ($58) the highest yet.Three players ended the two rounds with the perfect 26 points, so it was a count back to determine the winner. Kerri, Dan and Van were these players. Kerri had 15 points scored against her over the two games, Van 11 points and Dan 3 points. Well done, Dan, and thank you to everyone for participating.Several players asked if the competition could be started 30 minutes earlier during winter to get finished before the colder air comes in and the sun goes down. A show of hands at the end of play indicated that this was a popular view. So, the June, July and August competitions will start at 2.30 pm, with registrations from 2.25pm.The June Saturday Competition will be held on 16 June. See MoreSee Less

Epic Autumn Melee! Perfect weather saw more than 50 people turn up for the first melee of Autumn. What? 50+ people on a Wednesday night for petanque? Pinch me!Wendy and Alan were back from their adventures in Tasmania and revealed a themed menu with some classics like Wallaby Stew, Possum Pie, Gum Leaf Soup…shame I forgot to take a photo of the blackboard! Despite it sounding tasty, dinner instead proved to be a fantastic meal of 2 types of chicken with potato, pumpkin, onions, peas and gravy followed by scones with jam and cream. All 10 pistes under lights were full, with some teams playing as triples to accommodate the numbers. Looks like we might need to get lights on the other pistes!Adding to the night were our visitors from Taiwan: Eric, Edward, Zoe and Renee (hope I got that right!). Eric showed his experience as he plays for a club in Taiwan and they all joined in the random draw melee. They’re all leaving Adelaide tomorrow, but really seemed to enjoy the casual and convivial atmosphere of Prospect. Folks – you’re definitely welcome back any time!Summer melee winners were announced: Denise 3rd, Gavin 2nd and Ian took away the wad of cash in 1st place. Congrats Ian! See MoreSee Less

A Lot Has Been Happening at the Club – Visitors to the club will have seen the recent painting of the inside of the clubrooms together with other small changes. A couple of pieces of furniture have been repositioned and the trophies and memorabilia on the walls have been re-arranged. Thanks to Marty who has painted the trophy cabinet (as well as the black TV cord in the corner), which looks a treat, and to Brett for arranging the trophies and memorabilia.The Autumn leaves keep falling – as fast as they are raked up. The trees are a picture as they take on their Autumn hue and we are very grateful to Prospect Council who has very kindly agreed to arrange extra emptying of the green bins to assist with the disposal of the leaves. We had more than 20 piles of leaves today, which filled five wheelie bins and there are still about 5 piles waiting to be picked up once we have some more wheelie bin space.Those leaves will keep on falling for a little while yet, so if you are at the Club, and feel so inclined, just ask at the bar for access to a rake to assist with this ongoing job. Your assistance would be very much appreciated.On view in the clubrooms at the moment is the Trans Tasman Trophy which was won by Australia against New Zealand recently. Our member, Glenis Wilson, was a Coach with the Australian team and has organised for Prospect to have the trophy on display for a short time. See MoreSee Less

April’s Saturday Competition Winner is Pierre – Well done, Pierre for taking out this month’s Saturday Competition. Twenty seven players joined in the competition, so that meant Pierre had very heavy pockets on the way home with $54 in them, mostly in coins.We had perfect weather and two of our newest members joined in the games – welcome to Dan and Andrew. Very brave to enter the competition so early in your Petanque careers – for Dan it was his second attempt at petanque and for Andrew it was his first attempt and they both won one of their games. Look out everyone for some fierce competition in the future.After the two timed games there were six players – Robert, Yvonne, Jacques, Marilyn C, Pierre and Kym – with the perfect score of 26, so a count back was needed to determine the ultimate winner. Pierre only conceded 6 points across the two games, so he was the winner. It was great to see so many people having a good time in the wonderful weather and we look forward to our May Saturday Competition which will be held on 18 May, same time, same place.
