As usual, the sun came out yesterday for the Kirkstall Festival along with 20000 plus people. As always, the festival was superbly run and we had our fair share of visitors experiencing pétanque for the first time. Thanks to all our members who helped out on the day (Roseanna, Ann, Mike, Gavin, Steve, Richard & our Chair, Paul who brought all the kit down as well) and thanks to Alan Crump and Roger Moran, who are the main organisers of the festival, for inviting us again and doing such a great job. Finally, thanks to all volunteers who run it and all the festival goers who had a go at pétanque. It was a really fun day and great to see the terrain is still in good shape. Hope to be back again next year!
