Perth Petanque Finlay Morrison Memorial

Standard

The Finlay Morrison Memorial Pairs was held at the North Inch in Perth on 4th July.

On a most unpleasant morning, raining cats and dogs and an almost flooded piste, 5 teams from Perth – I don’t blame others from the provinces for not turning up – paddled their way to the sanctuary of the clubhouse for croissants and coffee. After some debate – “och, lets ging hame” was the cry – we decided to pit our skills(!) against the elements which had somewhat abated to a drizzle.

Drizzle, rain, cloud, sun – yes sun! – thunder and lightning, hail, downpour and dogs we had it all but the 5 teams played 4 games each resulting in Stuart M winning the Trophy for the second year running.

The teams were Stuart M and Douglas H – 4 wins; Margaret M and Mabel D – 2 wins; Eileen M and Pat M – 2 wins; Alice S and Frazer S and Jean and Henry H – 1 win each.

Regardless of the fickle weather we didn’t get too wet and were home by 3:30!

Douglas.
