Great start for 2011 season

The sun shone, spring was definitely springing and nearly 40 boules players turned out for Kernow Pétanque’s traditional start of season open event, the Easter Egg Shoot, held on 10 April at the Star Inn, St Day.


Overall winners, in a repeat of their success at last year’s event, were The Three Rs: Robert Herrick, of the Rising Sun Petanque Club, Altarnun, and Roy Pemberton and Rob Sullivan, both of the Treleigh Arms Petanque Society (TAPS), Redruth.

Runners-up were a pick-up team made up of Lena Daddow of Carharrack and Barbara Brown, Graeme Kirkham and Paul Rundle, all of Tregony Pétanque Club.


Winners of the Plate competition were three players from the newly formed club at the North Inn, Pendeen, in west Cornwall. The three – Pam Downing, Marcus Thurley and Delia Treseder – all started to play pétanque only this year.
