Boules at the Bike Chain cafe

Four teams turned out for the second round of the Cornwall winter boules safari, held on Sunday 20 January in on-off winter sunshine at the Bike Chain cafe at Bissoe.

The playing area was mostly deepish gravel, although there were some thinner patches which could make an incautious boule skitter away across the surface. For the most part, though, it was high lobs, with boules half buried in a crater and heaven help the shooter!

Winners once again were Emmanuelle Juan and Ray Beresford: two wins and a points difference of +8. Just behind them came Pete English and Andrew Jarvis with two wins and +7.

Susan Williamson and Graeme Kirkham had one win (-3) and Mark Hypponen, Dominik Ellwanger and Pete Lynas (the famous triple-double) had one win and -12.

A big thank you to the Bike Chain cafe for their very warm welcome, good food and excellent coffee! We'll be back.
