    Inspite of our best efforts, the French reclaimed the Friday Petanque title at Pedro's Place, www.parqueautocaravanasalbufeira.com ....where are you, Mel and Christine when we need you :Doh:
    As you can see, Jean-Claude took his job as temporary replacement for Pedro very seriously, complete with whistle :Rofl1:

    What a lovely way to while away a sunny afternoon! Best Sangria ever (made by the lovely Sandra), with cake and prizes all donated by Pedro :thumb:

    Did anyone explain 'Observe the flat, hard surface - this means we aren't playing BOWLS' ?

    :Rofl1:

    Fatal flaw you see, gentlemen of a Certain Age may assume the art is similar to what they used to see their grandads playing when they were little and were banned from setting so much as a toe on the holy turf !

    Whereas ladies of a similar vintage will have gathered from casual observation that there is a quite different technique - even before they read the rules!

    Anyway - you can't possibly bomb the opposition out of your way, from an underarm delivery, can you? :Laughing:

    We are up near Salamanca at present and I believe Mel is way up past Limoges

    Do not tempt me with Sandra's cakes or I may start back tracking.

    Hi Mel

    He was in the semi finals with Patric score 10 /9.
    I was happy I beat Jean Claude in the first round then lost to Patric in second.
