Port Owen Petanque Club
The petanque club consists of a very active group of more than 20 people, who play in the yacht club’s grounds on the first and third Wednesday of each month.
Joining fee for POYC members is R50,00
Course fee is R5,00 per game
Tea and coffee are served afterwards with cake if someone has a birthday during the month!
We are having the playoffs on the 29th November with the prize giving and lunch thereafter.
No petanque in December and we start again in January – date still to be confirmed.

Congratulations to Billy Powell for winning the Trophy for the top annual average player for 2017, and to Doris and Iloncka for placing second and third respectively.
Congratulations also go to Joyce and Iloncka for winning the playoffs “Hands” Trophy and to Ted and Ed for being the runners-up.
Thank you to everyone for generously supplying such a delicious feast for lunch which was enjoyed by all, and to John and Yvonne for taking time out of their busy day and graciously agreeing to be our guests of honour and joining us for lunch.
We would also like to thank you for your support over the past year, and to everyone who supplied eats during the year, a big thank you.
Thank you also for the lovely gift of wine which we will certainly enjoy.
We will work out the playing dates for next year which will be forwarded to you, and we look forward to seeing you all at petanque next year.
Keep well and have a very happy and safe Festive Season.
Linda and Ed Cormac
Feedback from 1 November 2017:
Last Wednesday’s friendly with the Velddrif Bowling Club turned out to be a lovely event which seemed to be enjoyed by all.

Ed and I would like to thank you all for making the bowlers feel so welcome. We heard comments about how enjoyable the game was and some bowlers even had another game after tea. The pairing of a petanque player with a bowler appeared to be a good idea as the bowling novices were given lessons as they played. As most of the bowlers had never played before they certainly learned quickly and won nearly 50% of the games played in rounds 3 and 4. Well done to everyone.
Thank you also to all who provided an absolute feast for the 37 odd people who were there for tea, and to everyone who helped tidy up afterwards. A big thank you also to Corné for opening the bar.
The end of the year is upon us already, and the playoffs, prize-giving, and lunch will be held on the 29th November 2017 at the Club. We will arrange the lunch the same as last year.
Looking forward to seeing you all when we meet again on the 15th November.
Some boulles were found at the course. If they are yours, please let us know.
Once again, thank you, everyone, for making the morning such a success.
Ed and Linda Cormac
