I should have guessed that the Flatpackchicken boule performance extraordinaire that’s been steamrolling the Italian and German opposition wouldn’t be allowed to go on without some response but what confronted the FPC team on the morning of the third leg of the competition was outrageous. All the front row spaces on one side of the Puntacetta Boule-a-Drome were filled with great big beefy looking guys in dark suits, their jackets just open enough to reveal Glock filled shoulder holsters. The Germans, for their part ranged along the opposite side, every man Johann of them with either an Alsatian or a Doberman straining on a short “Ezy Release” lead. Sometimes I’m a bit slow on the uptake and I could be wrong this time but I could sense a definite whiff of intimidation in the air.


The Flatpack team had a wild celebratory evening after their magnificent win of the day before and everybody, including the organisers agreed that the arrival of the MHF-001 Lear (nice touch Jim) at Punta Braccetto airport with the Funettes cheer squad on board was a huge boost for the team, despite Italian Customs officers confiscating their Pom Poms under some anti terrorism pretext. The girls weren’t to be put off by this blatant attempt at sabotage and after a half hour on the beach collecting washed up nets and rope and other shiny bits, they had a complete new set of even flashier pom poms for the match than the originals.


The game itself - well, let’s just say that despite some inspired play by our hero in defence of the Forum’s reputation it’s now time to lower the flags to half mast. The Flatpackchicken team have asked me to pass on their thanks for all your support over the past few trying days.

The pure genius of the man....

There's been a development. Apparently the Ref's been "approached" to turn a blind eye to the shenanigans of the Italian teams and to penalise the other nationalities but he's blown a head gasket over the whole affair and said that he's going to scrutinise the results of the Flatpackchicken game amongst others. Needless to say the FPC team (pictured below) are very excited at the prospect of remaining in the competition and still having a shot at being awarded the Golden Balls Trophy. The team tell me that Garry is a "fair but firm" boss. He's seen here in a moment of intense concentration, explaining to his support team the finer points of playing for and winning the Golden Balls Trophy. I must say, those three at the end, the Tour Financial Officer, Secretary and Team Clairvoyant don't look as interested as they should in the utterings of the Master. I'll appraise Garry and he can deal with them at their next Performance Assessment

As far as the Ref thing goes it's early days but I'll be at the Umpires meeting in the morning and will keep you posted. The Funettes may have had something to do with the Ref's rethink on things. Apparently (and this is only hearsay) TWO of them was seen coming out of the his Laika in the wee hours of the morning after the Flatpackchicken scandalous loss. Just saying'

Keep the faith

Don't worry.

We are already working on our appeal to the United Nations (Comitte de pétanque ), regarding the possible repercussions if the obviously biased judging goes against you.

Unoficially, we have heard that the Chinese UN Delegation is likely to use its powers of veto to prevent a successful appeal.:cool:
