Team Event at Stockton in October

The Greenheads took part in the Northern Petanque Open Team event of 10 very very good teams at Stockton Fox Sun 21st Oct 2018.
The matches were 3 doubles in the morning followed by 2 triples in the afternoon.
The scoring system was:-
Win by 13-6 or more = 2 points
Win by 13-5 or less   = 4 points
Win by 13-0               = 6 points
In Round 1 Rita & Robin managed an excellent result 13 – 3 victory for 4 points
Elizabeth & Brendan and Roy & Christine lost their matches.
In Round 2 we all lost & sat down & collectively said “Oh Bugger”
After the Captain’s inspirational team talk all pairings WON for 2 points each team.
Sadly the story goes down hill from there & neither of the triples could manage a win in the final games.
However a good time was had by Greenheads, played mostly in very good friendly company.
The positive is that we performed better the last year

Callum-ity

Tomorrows Mixed Pairs Open event is cancelled. Of our 10 lanes only 3 are without lying water and forecast is for more rain particularly tomorrow morning. So unfortunately we have no choice. I doubt if it can be rearranged as autumn weather isn’t likely to improve.

 

First winter melee

…and although there was free food, a presentation and a monster raffle most people were happy to get out of the wind and head for home. Before that Brendan and Yvonne were the only two players to win 3 games. Brendan had the better points difference so is the winner. Linda and Denise (both recently joined) did very well in their first melee. Next Melees are on November 3rd and December 2nd. In the new year they move to the second Sunday.

3 cakes, 24 light bites and 16 samosas

Last week was Macmillan Coffee Morning. We held our event at lunchtime before our regular club session and as you see in the title threw in a few non cake items.

Thanks for this occasion go to the members and friends who baked and brought buns and treats to the party and especially those people who donated money and ate the food.
The Club is pleased to say that the sum of £60.00 was raised on the day and this has now been forwarded to The Macmillan charity.
