Boules Blitz, Frankfield Petanque, Cork

We have received an email from Frankfield Petanque in Cork giving information about their Boules Blitz weekend on 7th and 8th September:


The Boules Blitz 2013 at Frankfield Petanque, Cork

Hi everyone,

The 2013 Frankfield Boules Blitz will be held on Saturday+Sunday, 7+8 September next.

The ‘Blitz’ continues to attract players from Wales, England, France and Sweden, as well as from Ireland North and South. The weekend has always been most enjoyable, along with keen competition throughout. We welcome players of every standard and from all clubs. Those of you who have competed in the past, will know that Day One is a qualifier, with the results determining which competition each double will be in on Day Two – the aim being, to have teams in a competition of their own standard on Day Two. Depending on entry numbers, Day Two will have two or three competitions.

Prizes for the weekend will be very attractive, with €300 and the Perpetual Shield for the winning double in the premier competition of Day Two, ‘The Complete Cuisine Gold Shield’, and as always, great prizes down the line. In the second competition on Day Two, ‘The Frankfield Doubles Cup’, the winning double will receive the Perpetual Cup and a big cash prize, and again great prizes down the line

The Format:

1. Teams come to Frankfield as doubles and compete on Day One in a round robin qualifier which will determine which competition they  are in on Day Two. Day Two will also be a round robin for each of the two/three competitions. Final details will be published at the start of Day One, along with scoresheets etc. As always, on each day, each double will select a sealed envelope which will contain their draw for the day.

2. There will be a special prize of €100 for the top scoring mixed double. This prize is confined to qualifiers in the premier competition, The Complete Cuisine Gold Shield. It will be awarded to the top mixed double in the premier competition, regardless of their placing in that competition. However, if the winners of the premier competition are a mixed double, this special prize will go to the next best mixed double in the premier competition.   Note: no double can win more than one prize.

3. Entry fee is €25 per double. Please let us have your entry by e-mail or phone to the Secretary not later than 23 August 2013.

4.  Registration time on Saturday, Day One, is 9.15am sharp, with play commencing at 9.45am. Please circulate your club members about The Frankfield Boules Blitz 2013.
