On that record warm October Sunday, 40 teams – the most we’ve ever seen on our terrain – came from far and wide for this event. A full report will appear later on in the next newsletter. Suffice it to say for now that the competition was a great success for the club, Sussex Petanque and the EPA. Thanks to all our members who worked hard before, during and after the event, with special mention of Janice Doherty who successfully and tastily ran our Cafe Carreau.
The day ended in two intriguing finals, with Jeff Mitchell and Herbie Edwards (Crowborough) winning the Main competition, and our very own Pat Connolly and Ian Maynard winning the Plate competition in a nail-biting finish. Congratulations to both teams.
