Kernow charity event

For the second year in a row Colin 'Boot' Booth and Graeme Kirkham took the trophy in the Reg Daddow Memorial doubles competition, held on Sunday 15 October, at the Star Inn, St Day. But only by the narrowest of margins.

After seven rounds of timed games three pairs had five wins: Boot and Graeme, Susan Williamson and Ray Beresford, and Dion Beechey and Rob Sullivan.

Dion and Rob had a final points difference of +10 but Boot and Graeme and Susan and Ray both had +19. Boot and Graeme had won the game they played against Susan and Ray - just! - with a score of 10-9.

Unfortunately the event, intended as the Cornwall region's major charity fundraising event of the year, attracted an entry of only seven teams, only six of which were from the local region. A big thank you to Ged and Ann Barton, who traveled from north Devon to take part and took fourth place.

A total of £150 was raised from entry fees, donations and a raffle and will go to the Little Harbour Children's Hospice, St Austell. The charity was chosen by Lena Daddow, widow of Reg, who was himself one of the founding players of petanque in Cornwall. The competition has been held in his memory since 2006.
