Boule - 27 February 2013 - Results

Yachting Golf, Almerimar

 Boule - 27 February 2013

The society organised its third boule (petanca) competition in Almerimar on Wednesday 27 February 2013. The prize giving took place at Yachting Golf and the first prize was a 50 euros voucher for use in Yachting Golf.

Thanks to Alan & Judi Sheppard for organising this competition working with John Woodhead.

The entry fee was 5 euros a member and 10 euros for guests with entry fees coming back as prizes. Plus there was a small subsidy for the event from the stock of FGS prizes (caps, cool bags and packs of 3 bottles of wine).

23 FGS members and 3 guests took part in the competition. The starting format was 6 leagues of 3 players and two leagues of 4 players with each match being played as first to 9 points.

The winner from each league went forward to a knockout competition for the main prize. This was played as first to 9 points in the quarter finals, first to 11 points in the semi finals then first to 13 points in the final.

The other players from each group took part in pairs competitions for consolation prizes of bottles of wine. There were 3 leagues of 3 pairs of players with the winners of each league getting a bottle of wine. The consolation matches were played as first to 7 points.

The weather was not great with a strong chilly wind. So everyone was pleased that we managed to shorten the competition and finish by 1pm rather than the scheduled finish time of 2pm.

After the event all of the participants went to Yachting Golf for the drinks and prize giving.
