A Family Affair
The final of this year’s Open Boules Tournament, held at the Mill Farm Bouledrome on Thursday evening, turned out to be a family affair with the Symonds defeating the Fitzgeralds A team in a closely contested match.
Twelve teams of three dragged themslves away from the Olympics to enter the competition (sponsored by Blackhand Cyder) and the standard of play was as high as ever. Play was interrupted by a heavy shower mid evening though it failed to extinguish the barbecue kindly provided by the hosts, David and Adele Godsmark. The rain did rather more damage to the scoreboard but Commisaire DG reduced the length of matches and kept the competition rolling forward. The cyder flowed and a great time was had by all.
Congratulations to the worthy winners of the Boule Remy Trophy, Jasmine, Lorraine and Jon Symonds. The winners of the Plate competition, for those eliminated at the pool stage, were “The Koreans” — Terry Hanner, Charles and Jane Christian.
