Our “fun day” of Petanque
On what would have been the 42nd meeting of our long term twinning partners, Montreuil PC and Seal, we hosted an event
with 8 triples teams including guests from Sidcup PC and Jean-Paul and Martine from Montreuil and an ebullient Didier.
The outstanding weather made for a great day though proved challenging with 30 degree temperatures!
Two leagues of four teams battled it out for 3 matches each eventually producing semi-finalists of Barbara’s “Girlies” (Barbara, Lyn and Jill Geddes) v Don’s team from Sidcup (Don, Lewis and Jasmine) and our “Overseas” visitors (Didier, Jean-Paul and Martine) v Dave, George and Eric Geddes.
In a mirror final of last years Montreuil event, Sidcup emerged as finalists against the Overseas players, with Didier, Jean-Paul and Martine coming through as Trophy Winners.
Thanks to all who came and supported this event. With around 30 attendees and a great BBQ after, a good time was had by all and we managed to rescue the day despite being let down at short notice by Michel and the Montreuil club.
It seems clear now that the 40 year partnership with Club de Montreuil is sadly at an end and we have plans in place to begin the search for a new twinning.
We have already discussed the potential for a visit to Ghent next year to play at Didier’s club, Schorpien, where other Belgian clubs might join us.
