Once again, the Poppy Doubles competition at Cobbetts attracted a large number of Fareham Petanque Club members, with a few unable to secure a place due to this popular event being fully booked (38 teams) within just a few days of being advertised. The day was meticulously run and a resounding success as Cobbetts raised £600 with players from across the Region and beyond giving generously.
It was a sunny but cold November day and some parts of the terrain were still a bit soggy from the previous days rain. Format for the day comprised of Leagues in the morning and knockouts in the afternoon with prizes at various levels.
Minions David K & Carrie were the all Fareham team who made it into the Main along with Jackie Lee who played with Stuart Curlsey from Oxshott and Paula Fauvel who played with Carol Collyer (Cobbetts). Most of the other teams made it to the Plate with a few teams enjoying some fun games in the Wooden Spoon with a fair bit of friendly banter.
Known results of FPC Members included:
- Quarter Final: Paula Fauvel & Carol Collyer (Cobbetts)
- Consolage Final: Jackie Lee & Stuart Cursley (Oxshott)
- Top 16: David K & Carrie (The Minions)
- Quarter Final: Mark Robertshaw with his mum Karen
- Consolage winners: Malcolm & Shelley
- Consolage Semi-Final: Paul & Hassi
Well done to all FPC members who played on this Remembrance Day and helped raise money for the Poppy Appeal.
