We only played 3 games before lunch. Lamoon, the kitchen supremo the Sports Park brings in to cater for 'big' events did a fab lunch for us again – along the lines of the Opening Day lunch; this time baked chicken was included. Only 27 people had lunch so he club is a bit out of pocket, but that will be rectified next time. There was quite a lot left over which we left on the bar for people to help themselves. Everyone seemed to have had a lovely time and we had fantastic weather!
The Teams were from the clubs in the Sports Park and the Park management: Hockey, Petanque Wallingford, Skittles, Tennis (represented by players from Petanque Wallingford), Squash and Sports Trust Trustees
The final winners were
1st Place: Les Boulistes: (Petanque Wallingford) Anthony Pike, Mike Crook and Etienne Rijkheer (visiting from the USA);
2nd Place: Absolute Heroes (Hockey) Julian, Andy and Lynn;
3rd Place: White Light (Petanque Wallingford) Loren Butt, Cynthia Lovegrove, Trevor Harris.
After lunch those who wanted to 'just played'. We received 2 donations and potentially 5 new members so I think we can say we had a successful day. Thanks very much to those who helped clear up too – you would never think 40 people had even been there! I learned a lot! So next time I will do things differently.
