A Great Night at the Bouledrome
Denton's Blackhand Cyder Society 2019 Boules Tournament was blessed with warm sunshine which saw 87 members and friends gather at the Mill Farm Bouledrome on Sunday for this annual event.
The afternoon started well with England's historic Test Match victory over Australia, but then the serious local contest got under way.18 teams of three entered the draw – a 50% increase on last year and games were all great fun and, occasionally, very competitive.
In the final of the main competition, after a well fought contest, the Lincoln Shrimps (Joe, Helen and Jaydn, née Fitzgerald) beat Great Boules of Fire (Kate, Lubi, and Charlotte).
The Plate Competition saw Chris and Co (Jean, Doris and Chris) beat The Skinns (Malcolm, Janet and Chris K).
It was great to see so many "two-generation" teams taking part.
Thanks must go to everyone who came and joined in or just came and enjoyed relaxing in the sunshine, but especially to Adèle and David who organised and hosted the event so well.
