Charity event success

2011 Reg Daddow Memorial Event WinnersEighteen teams took part in the 2011 Reg Daddow Memorial competition at the Star Inn, St Day, on Sunday 23 October, raising a record donation from this annual event of £200 to Macmillan Cancer Support.

Players included seven pairs from clubs in Great Western region – a very big ‘thank you’ to them for their support – who travelled down to Cornwall for a weekend of pétanque.

Overall winners of the competition were Roy Pemberton and Rob Sullivan, both of the Treleigh Arms Petanque Society (TAPS), who also took first place in last year's event. They beat Great Western’s Mark Gilbert and Cary Bush in the final. In third place were Mike Hill and Simon Penna, both from Falmouth, and fourth, Graeme Kirkham and Susan Williamson of Tregony Pétanque Club.

The event – formerly the annual Kernow Pétanque Turkey Shoot – celebrates the contribution made by the late Reg Daddow and other players who first established the game in Cornwall. The Turkey Shoot tradition was maintained by the generous donation of a turkey for a raffle prize by another former player, butcher John Penglase of St Day.
