PETANQUE WEEKEND TRIP
It is clear that that there is very little interest from members in either the trip to the Jersey Open in April or South Downs in July therefore the Club will not be organising trips for either of these.
However a number of people have confirmed an interest in the trip to the Isle of Wight taking place from Friday 14th to Monday 17th October. The Club is therefore going ahead with organising this trip and we will start to take bookings at the Pre-season meeting. Full cost is £185 per person and each booking will need to be accompanied by a £20 deposit. Further details are attached.
On a very cold and wet post-Christmas Sunday we were both surprised and pleased that 24 competitors turned up to play in our Christmas Cracker Tournament, (plus Len Ellis of course, contributing his skills to keeping things organised!). This was an excellent turnout given the conditions.
Many thanks to all the players who took part, most of whom are in the picture.
Our winner this year was Dave Smith from the Bressingham Club
David Rome from the Norwich Club was in 2nd place
Congratulations to Tony D'Esposito who won our January Winter Money Melee and Mark Bell who was in 2nd place. Our final 2 games take place on Wednesday 3rd February, 7pm and Wednesday 2nd March, 10am.
