Members of the Club attended the annual Alliance Francaise Petanque tournament at Rick and Catherine Steele's beautiful property in Ballarat in March. We were successful bringing in first and second places amongst 14 teams!
We had three teams at Avoca Doubles this year - Jeff and Michel, Jack and Gordon and Clive and John. In addition Chris and Rob played with other Club members. All teams performed competitively amongst the 30 teams in the Open competition.
Jeff and Michel did well on the second day coming in fourth in the Complementaire section. Some photos below - including some from the recent outing at Gordon's G-dome (since we forgot to take enough photos at Avoca!)
A group of 18 members and partners travelled to Blue Pyrenees Winery on Friday March 8th. We played some petanque on the famous piste that the legendary finals of the Avoca tournaments i the 70s were played on. They are now more a dirt road so the terrain was "challenging"! A great day out culminated by a four or five tapas course lunch that was yummy.
