We’re in the Final!

Congratulations to our West Yorkshire Cup team who beat arch rivals, Leeds PC, by 4 games to 1 in the semi-final at The Pierhead last Friday (2nd August)!

Jim, Nigel, Sandy, Brenda, Sue and Charles will now take on Heckmondwike, or Huddersfield, in the Final in a couple of weeks’ time, and probably on neutral ground at the Leeds terrain in Headingley.

HMPC won both the Gents and Ladies Triples, and mixed pairs wins for Brenda/Charles and Sue/Nigel secured a resounding victory.

Details for the Final to follow.


New Year News

With best wishes to all members and friends for 2019.

Play will continue through the winter on Sunday mornings at The Pierhead from 11 am – weather permitting! That’s a ‘dry’ weather forecast, and a few degrees above ‘zero’.

Hint: You can warm your boules in the oven at 60c for about 15/20 minutes before you come down. BUT be careful to check they’re not too hot to handle before you take them out!

The next event will be the Club’s AGM in March and details will be circulated once the arrangements are confirmed.


Bob the Bouler wins the Luchon Melee Cup!

The last melee of the season, on Sunday lunchtime (30th), was won by Bob Laughton. Fine weather, but with a cold wind, brought out 21 competitors, to play over 4 rounds of triples with different team partners.
Thanks to all who took part and enjoyed a shared, an extensive ‘pot luck’ buffet lunch both during the competition, and for a few, afterwards at Cafe Nero!
Bob Laughton was victorious with 4 wins (28 points), with Nigel Clay and Brenda Sutcliffe joint runners up with 25 points.

Thanks to Sue Howe for organising, and all those who contributed to the feast.
