The President’s Cup was today won by a team from Monkstone Petanque Club consisting of Barney, Keith, Nai and Andy. They fought their way through to the final where they had a stunning and convincing victory over a team from Monkstone Inn comprised of Ian Bailey, Glyn Attley and Jake Caston (Carlen RFC PC).
“Three Men in a Boat”, Bernard, Peter K and John M, were all at sea and had a terrible morning losing all three games, including one to the “Three Degrees” (see below) but came good in the afternoon to beat a teams from Caerleon and Brecon and take the Plate competition.
The “Three Degrees”, Vickie, Carol and Rose, after their triumph in the first game against the “Men in a Boat” went somewhat downhill but in the gathering gloom they heroically managed to avoid the wooden spoon by beating a team from Carlen RFC PC.
We must thank all those from the Club who helped to make yesterday a success by playing, setting up and clearing up, providing raffle prizes etc.
Particular thanks to Barbara who didn’t play but worked like a Trojan all day making sure that there was tea & coffee and biscuits for our guests, clearing up and generally doing all those little unnoticed jobs that are so necessary to keep an event running smoothly.
