17th August 2023 Annual Boules Competition– Hosted by Alan Folwell

We were blessed with another fine evening of dry, warm weather to enjoy our Annual competition of Boules. I guess there must have been about 24 present, as we were split into groups for the preliminary round, spread at various locations around the splendid gardens of our host.  Everything seemed well organised by Alan, quite unusual for a Club event, but once allocated to a ‘team’ the rules were interpreted in a relaxed manner, noticeable by the fact that some competitors ensuring that they didn’t qualify for the final by some ‘wild’ throws.

The 6 finalists were then subject to an elimination process, just one throw and the furthest away ‘goes out’. Here is the list in the order they were eliminated: Allen R, Jim, Stuart, Bill and David V., leaving Denis as Champion, apparently for the second year!

This was followed by some Bingham special hot dogs, with additional Rob fried onions plus sauces accompanied by lots of banter and discussions as to the Lionesses chances in the Women’s World Cup final. A great evening of fun and fellowship.                               AR
