Just a reminder it is our club open day tomorrow starting at 11am. Please invite friends and family to join us to have a go at playing Pétanque.
We have the BBQ and some of you have kindly offered to bring other bits of food. Please bring what you can; salads, pies, cakes, biscuits and drinks etc. all welcome.
We are meeting a bit earlier tomorrow, at around 1030am, to get setup if you can come help out.
Please note; a photographer who works on some local magazines has asked if he can take some pictures tomorrow. He is called Ivor and will ask your individual permission if he can takes snaps of you. We hope you won’t mind and it may be helpful to attract some more members if they are published.
See you there,
Following on from Sam’s interesting update on the banning of jeans for Pétanque players in France taking part in competitions. The Daily Telegraph paper picked on the story and commented on ‘bouliganism’; fiery incidents happening between Petanque players.

Pleased to say I’ve never witnessed any bouliganism at our club…
Looking forward to our Open Day on Sunday. See you there,
On Sunday 6th May from 11am we have our Club Open Day taking place. Please invite your friends and family to join us to try out a game of pétanque. We will also be holding another fantastic barbecue thanks to Robin and Carol. So come along with all your mates and keep your fingers crossed for good weather!
Beyond the BBQ please can our kind and generous members bring salads, Spanish frattas, drinks and cakes.
Please bring a dish if you can. If you can come early to help set it all up as well that would be great too.
See you there,
A 31-year-old Frenchman has died after a metal ball used for playing the traditional French game pétanque exploded in his barbecue.
All please be careful over summer now the BBQ season appears to have arrived.
Here’s the full story … news
News from Sam:
Big revolt in my old holiday spot. Jeans have now been banned in national qualifiers by the Federation. Nimes is of course where denim was invented (coton de nimes).
Les lads are up in arms, its their national dress in these parts after all.
They are holding jeans clad protest games this weekend.
Just a reminder we need you to volunteer for the WY League matches and try out your skills in competitive games.
Pam is organising the teams and bringing along a list of the dates and times of the games to our club sessions so you can add your names.
Please don’t be shy and if you’d like to play just let me and Pam know. All abilities are welcome and especially those who haven’t had much experience of match play before.
