Our 2010 champions and Coupe d'Antibes winners are Mary Brady and Graeme Gerard, who defeated Glenys and Derek Lambert in the final. Making the win even more special is the fact that it was Mary's first game of pétanque, and to top Mary's day off, she also won first prize in the raffle. Although the games were played on grass rather than the usual gravel pistes at Mandeni, the change in surface made for a much more even competition. Thanks to Dorothea for organising the event and to Danielle for organising the draw!
The Seahorse Inn at Boydtown is congratulated for the very well cooked turkey lunch (and the best crème brûlée imaginable for the price), and the attentive and capable serving staff. All in all a terrific day out.
