New Cornwall shooting champion

New shooting champion for Kernow Pétanque is Dave Piggin of Tregony Pétanque Club. He beat Peter Gliddon in a tie-break shoot-off after they tied on points in the main competition. In third place was Pete Thomas of the North Inn PC, Pendeen.

The shooting competition was held as part of the Kernow President's Day event, held at the Star Inn, St Day, on Sunday 12 August. The event also included a doubles competition, won by Colin 'Boot' Booth and Pete Thomas of the North Inn, with Regional doubles champions Simon Penna and Paul Lancaster in second place on points difference. Equal third were Susan Williamson and Pete Lynas and Roy Pemberton and Pete English.

Pete Downing of the North Inn PC and Robert Herrick of the Rising Sun PC, Altarnun took joint first place in a pointing and pétanque skills competition. Prizes for the day were organised on the French lot system: everyone taking part gets a prize, with those gaining the highest scores getting first choice from the selection. The day was organised by Kernow President Graeme Kirkham; many thanks to Simon Penna for taking on the barbecue.
