Kapiti Over 70's TournamentKapiti Over 70's Tournament

Another successful “Over 70’s” friendly tournament was held at Kapiti Pétanque Club on Wednesday 6th November. Tournament started with 52 entries followed by 2 cancellations so Brian Frampton and Kath Alison agreed to enter, to make an even number of players and thus avoid a bye.

As the part of the mêlée, five games were played. The weather was good, although light rain began to fall towards the end of the day. All who played enjoyed their day and said what a great atmosphere there was. Laughter and joking could be heard coming from most pistes which was so good to hear.

Wanganui East Triples

18 November 2013

Twenty-five teams took part in the seventh annual Wanganui East Open Triples (16/17 November).

The first day qualifying format was a five round random-draw with a time limit of 60 minutes plus two ends. At the end of the day, two teams were undefeated on five wins: Yvonne Futcher/Barbara Johnston/Annick Le Guen and Denise Bavidge/Sharon Cannon/Geoff Greer.

Sunday morning saw the top sixteen qualifiers divided into four pools of four. The bottom nine qualifiers from Saturday played in a five round random-draw for the Bowl.

In the afternoon the top two teams from each pool continued in the Trophy knockout, while the bottom two took part in the Plate knockout.

In an interesting twist, all four Plate and Trophy finalists came from the same pool from the morning round.

In the Trophy final, Myles Cowper, Nick Jegousse, and Michael Rocks repeated their 13-6 morning win against Christian Fouquet, David Lippard, and Dirk Winnie.

In the Plate final, Maurice Belz, Bob Bridge, and Lee Tafford also repeated their morning win against Clive Bartlett, Bill Peachey, and Ray Pierce.

Pete Hamilton, Shirley Selwyn and Claire Wilson were undefeated in winning the Bowl.

Final results.
