Doublet Mélêe Tournament – Oct 28, 2017

In the words of Gary Ragan:

“Twas on a frosty morn…the faithful gathered (including the witch, a millennial, a pregnant man (wow!), Rosie the Riveter, a ninja, and other mysterious creatures of the night) to perform the ancient ritual of Pétanque.”

On Saturday morning, Oct 28th, LBC held our last tournament of 2017.  The morning was cold but the spirits were high.  We had more drama than usual which was by a costume contest.  Since some of our regular tournament organizers were called to other duties, other folks willingly volunteered to help. A special thanks goes to Evelyn Woods and David Bintiff who worked at the scoring table, as well as to all who helped to set up and clean up!

We had a field of 24 vying to get their names engraved on our tournament trophy.  Teams were formed by a draw matching pointers and shooters.  We had two players enter from San Antonio: Michelle Healy and Stephen Johns.   One from Montpelier, France: George Pons.  And three young beautiful French women visitors who presented the medals: Cloé, Eléa, and Louna.
Our tournament winners were:
1st Place: Peter Gray and Tommy Woods
2nd Place: Michael and Terry Plemons
3rd Place: Joel Kenty and Lucas McClure
4th Place: Kelly Brown and Thierry Amisse.
