And in the meantime 5 rounds of petanque was played in the Yorkshire winter pairs. 9 Huddersfield members were playing and 17 teams from all over Yorkshire turned up to grumble about the weather. First round was wet but during the second the rain stopped and for the bulk of the afternoon it was warm and sunny. But at the very end as four dour Yorkshiremen and women played the last few games there were serious wind issues.
Winners were Sylvestre and Clare and the best performance from Huddersfield was Paul who played with Rosanna from Leeds and made 4th place and a share of the prize money. Then we all went home to get warm and dry out. A great day.
