Petanque Pick Your Team Tournament

The Petanque Committee held the first tourney of the New Year with the annual ‘Pick Your Team’ Tournament on Saturday, January 8. What a beautiful morning it was with the sun out, clear skies and a start time temp at 66F, with a slight SSE breeze making the morning picture perfect.

Petanque Chair and tournament Coordinator Greg Plank sounded the familiar airhorn setting the 16 team, 64 player tourney in motion at 9am sharp. This particular tournament is a player favorite each year as they assemble their own teams rather than random draw. Always a fun day!

‘A’ Flight Champs

Ok, so let’s get to the winners…Claiming the ‘A’ Flight Championship going undefeated all day (including kicking this reporters butt) are (L-R) Mike Porrini, Cathy Porrini, Andrea Seibert, and Ron Lee.  A great day and Congrats to our Champs!

‘B’ Flight Champs

Our ‘B’ Flight Champs after the one loss in the first round, put it all together and went on to victory by running the table the rest of the way.  Congrats to (L-R) Gil Roy, Joanne Roy, Sue Bryant, and Bob Bryant

Tournaments takes many hands to run smoothly with setup and break down, including the Petanque Officers of Chair Greg Plank, Vice Chair Barry Radaweic, Treasurer Cathy Porrini, and Secretary Pam Pelletier and others who continually offer their assistance. Thank You All!

Let’s not forget our PGT (Petanque Grill Team) of Robyn Fitzsimmons and Bonnie Ritz who again worked their magic grilling up those dogs for the participants. Thank You Ladies!

Pétanque plays Monday-Saturday at various time.  Make sure to stop at the Courts and ask a few questions if you are interested, they are a friendly bunch.
