The sun shone and for a while it was even warm enough to play in a T-shirt at the Kernow Petanque pre-Christmas melée, held at the Star Inn, St Day, on Sunday 11 December.
Mince pies and Christmas sweaters helped with the seasonal fun and overall it made for a very successful end-of-year event.
Best results of the day went to Kernow Playing Officer Andrew Jarvis (Vogue PC), who romped away with five wins from the five games played. Second was Tony Smith (Tregony PC), with four wins and a points difference of +27.
Third was Colin 'Boot' Booth (North Inn PC) on four wins and +18, followed by Roy Pemberton (Coaching Inn PC), again with four wins and +13. Roy was also way ahead of the rest of the field in the festive outfit stakes (see photographs on Kernow Petanque facebook page).
