The new Kernow Petanque precision shooting champion is Roy Pemberton, of the Coaching Inn Petanque Club, St Columb Major.
Roy took the title yesterday, Sunday 4 September, with an impressive performance which included shooting the jack three times out of four during the final round of the event.
Roy will now represent the Cornwall region at the English Petanque Association's national precision shooting competition, to be held at Hayling Island, Hampshire, this coming weekend.
The 2016 shooting contest was held as part of Kernow's President's Day event at the Star Inn, St Day. Runner-up in the competition was Kernow President Pete Lynas.
A sociable melée provided the main competition of the day, won narrowly by Paul Rundle over fellow Tregony PC member Mark Hypponen. Both had five wins from the five rounds played with Paul holding the top spot with a greater points difference.
A pointing competition was won by this year's Kernow women's singles title holder, Kate Herrick of the Rising Sun PC, Altarnun,
