Les Rouges met the Terrible Trio, the Dawes and Steve, for the first game and Won! (They got 5 ahead and didn't score again.)
PW also won the second game against a team from Burnham after being 4-12 down, but lost the third game to the Twiglets of Burnham - Paul, Dean and Dave, Ron's grandson (unsurprisingly - they shot all PW's good boules).
We all broke for lunch and a well-earned sitdown. After lunch we met the Marlow Magpies and lost after being 6-0 in the lead and finally we met the Bozos +1, two Bozos and Mark Blackall and won 13-10. So Les Rouges came fourth.
Les Rouges then played in the third place play–off against the Marlow Magpies, but I think by that time we had lost interest (it was gone 4 o'clock and rain was threatening) perhaps a bridge too far! and we lost 1–13. But we arrived home at 5.00 tired by happy.
Our next meeting is at MARLOW on 19th July for the Club Team Championships (6 players – 3 pairs).
Marlow Magpies of MTTA Marlow came 3rd and Les Rouges of Petanque Wallingford came 4th.
