CPC All Over the 60+ Mixed Doubles Results
By JP Ernst
There were 26 entants in the 60 plus Mixed Doubles Tournament held at Camberwell, Caulfied and Dove over three days.
Of those 26, CPC members made about half the players and so there was a good chance of taking a great deal of the booty home.

Larking Around the Piste amid Birdsong
By Sandra Brown
What a great day we had on Sunday, 17 April, for our club's 2016 Mixed Doubles' Tournament at Lynden Park, warm and sunny with just a light breeze, our abundant birdlife providing a background chorus.
A busy day on the Petanque Calendar saw the S-E Region Cup held at St. Andrew's Beach and the N-E Region Cup held at Gisborne take place on the same day.
We welcomed twenty four teams, drawn from St. Kilda, Dove, Weird, Hanging Rock, Long Beach and our own members, who participated in our event.
Our Club’s most successful were John and
Narelle Cook, 3rd in the Principale, followed
into 4th position by Ben Nicholson and Gloria
Wales. In the Consolante Peter Barker and
Chris Butler were 3rd. Antoine and Nicole
Buffet were 3rd in The Conviviale.

We thank these good people for their efforts in hosting a successful day for all our visiting teams. ⛔
