Haines Cup Wellington v Hawke’s Bay Challenge

The Haines Cup Wellington v Hawke’s Bay Challenge was held on the 13th December 2009 at the Manawatu Petanque Club. It was a very exciting and challenging day for all players and the results came in as follows. Wellington won 9 games of singles and Hawke’s Bay won 3. Hawke’s Bay won 4 games of singles and Wellington won 2. The triples games which were very exciting came back with a draw, Wellington won 4 and Hawke’s Bay won 4. This ended in a final result of Wellington total points 25 and Hawke’s Bay 23. We look forward to next year’s challenge.

HB Spring Melee    Click on this link to see the format and how to register for the HB Spring Melee



The Hawkes Bay Spring Melee

The first round of the HB Spring Melee was played on Sunday 16th August. Ten players turned up and had a great time despite the rain. We played four games and mixed up the teams really well. Winner of the melee was Barb and received a bottle of wine. Last player was Maurice who won a bottle of Spumante. To anyone who may be reading this news item and didn't come along, please have a go. We have very few competitions at this time of the year and your name gets called out of a hat and you get teamed up with the next name out of the hat. We all gained a lot from being able to play with people we would not normally get a chance to. We look forward to seeing you all at the next round on Sunday at the Napier Club at 12.30pm.
