Kernow AGM date

The Kernow Petanque Annual General Meeting will take place on Sunday 5 March 2017 at the Star Inn, St Day. (This date replaces the event listed for 12 February on the 2016 calendar.)

Formal notice of the meeting will be sent to members shortly, followed by an invitation to put forward topics and motions for discussion. An agenda will go to all members prior to the meeting.

There will be a competition at the Star on the same day - details to be announced soon.


Yule boules !

The annual Kernow Petanque Santa Shoot melée takes place on Sunday 11 December at the Star Inn, St Day.

This is an open event - all welcome! There could be mince pies . . !

Registration 10.00-10.15, start of play 10.30. £5 per player.

In the melée format there is a fresh draw for playing partners in each round. Individuals keep the score from each game they take part in and the results are totted up at the end to find the winners and runners-up.

Games will be timed and the event will be organised to finish in time to avoid failing afternoon light (and falling temperatures!).

The Star's usual roast rolls will be available for lunch - please order in advance by phoning the Star on 01209 820242. Please do not bring your own refreshments / food to the event.


Sun shines for Kernow Santa shoot

The sun shone and for a while it was even warm enough to play in a T-shirt at the Kernow Petanque pre-Christmas melée, held at the Star Inn, St Day, on Sunday 11 December.

Mince pies and Christmas sweaters helped with the seasonal fun and overall it made for a very successful end-of-year event.

Best results of the day went to Kernow Playing Officer Andrew Jarvis (Vogue PC), who romped away with five wins from the five games played. Second was Tony Smith (Tregony PC), with four wins and a points difference of +27.

Third was Colin 'Boot' Booth (North Inn PC) on four wins and +18, followed by Roy Pemberton (Coaching Inn PC), again with four wins and +13. Roy was also way ahead of the rest of the field in the festive outfit stakes (see photographs on Kernow Petanque facebook page).


Trengilly boules terrain back in play

After several years with little or no play, the petanque piste at the Trengilly Wartha Inn, near Constantine, has been refurbished and is now very definitely back in use.

The terrain had become very overgrown and was used more by the pony stabled beside it than by boules players! Recently, however, Kernow Petanque President Pete Lynas, who originally built the facility (including the massive stone wall along one side), has put a lot of work into clearing vegetation and making it playable again.

It's a nicely challenging surface, with a variable slope from side to side, some humps and bumps and hard and soft spots.It's located in a peaceful spot in the woods behind the pub.

The Trengilly Wartha Inn (postcode TR11 5RP) is well known for its food and beer and tucked away in beautiful surroundings at Nancenoy, just south of Constantine village and close to the Helford river. Just right for a boules safari!
