Petanca Mora D’Ebre

DSCF5207 (640x480)

Well not fire but certainly ‘Smoking’….  We were on form yesterday but then came the last game and we somehow lost the rhythm, bit like Tottenham Hotspur on Saturday. The result was we came second in our group winning wine and a dried sausage, so I was quite happy.  As usual it was nice to meet our friends, most of whom, like ourselves,  had belonged to this club, but moved on when numbers dwindled.  We still like to play there and are more than pleased to see old friends and I think that is the problem, old being the operative word. I am in my 70’s and some of my friends are older, we are gradually becoming the fewer of the few. But we are not sitting waiting for anybody, the competition is fierce and I was geared up for the battle.

Mind you, on reflection there is hope as you can see from this picture of a young man who could bowl with an accuracy that we all envied, but was far to young to play. One day he will be collecting his own prizes as his proud dad looks on.

The Sunday Morning Game

We played on dappled courts under shade giving trees, whilst a gentle breeze kept us cool as the morning wore on.  There are 10 courts in all but as there were more teams than could fit on them, they laid out one more at the end by the car park. Playing is intense and you will often find teams playing tactically for that vital point.  Sometimes there is a game which is almost snail pace because they are playing for first or second place, that is when things get interesting and take a while to resolve.  For me this is the attraction of the game. You can have a laugh and a joke whilst playing, but always there is the serious business of winning.  Tactics to be discussed, whether to pica or not, how many points do you need to win and how to get them.

I Spy..

As you will have gathered by now, my wife takes the pictures and has been the unofficial photographer for the club for almost two years.  Now a sense of humour is always necessary in competitions, and today was no exception. The guy in the picture is Louise, and neither he nor my wife could help themselves from playing ‘I Spy’, whilst the rest of us waited for the prize giving.

Prize Giving

This is purely a picture story so I have started with the overall winners with their hams then everyone else follows on in no particular odrder:

Rainer and Eunesio

Last but not least I must thank Rainer for putting on a good show and making everyone welcome.   He and Eunesio did a sterling job, the prizes were wonderful and much appreciated.  It takes a lot of hard work to run a Petanca club, not just in time and effort but organising competitions and other events, I couldn’t do it so my hat goes off to these two outstanding friends.
