Southwold Bitter Division welcomes back ''old'' faces

Due to some minor re-organisation of the Southwold Bitter Division, we are pleased to announce that the pre-existing team at the Cratfield Poacher, have stepped back into the breach and will be facing up against the likes of Huntingfield, Walberswick and North Cove in the coming weeks.

Welcome back and enjoy the season.

Festival of Boules 2012

Saturday 21st July & Sunday 22nd July

At 6 different venues within the Adnams Coastal Petanque League, we are holding a 2012 Festival of Boules event.

What you need is a team of a minimum of 4 players BUT at least one player MUST be a novice. You can select one of the six venues to take your team along to. Each venue will consist of the home team plus a maximum of three visiting teams. Over a set amount of time, your team will play the other three teams present, before the ''roadshow'' moves on to the next location.

You can enter your team at more than one venue if you like and it is completely free to enter, you don't even have to be a current team in the League.

HOWEVER we do ask that you pre-book your team with us.

Both the evening venues are planning to have a BBQ or similar, which may be a ''pay as you eat'' but that particular bit is not being organised by the league.

Saturday 21st July
11am at the Middleton Bell
3pm at the Moot Hall Arena, Aldeburgh
7pm at the Parrot & Punchbowl Aldringham

Sunday 22nd July
10am at Kettleburgh Millenium Green
2pm at the Cretingham Bell
6pm at the Huntingfield Millenium Green

Eastern European petanque ''superstar'' could be joining league

Eastern European petanque player Olof Paril has been seeking entry into the Adnams Coastal Petanque League after moving into the area just under two weeks ago.

Our Coastal League Co-Ordinator stated that Olofs previous club had made approaches to see if their ex-player could find a place in one of our Coastal Leagues teams. In a report, 2C FIM Gullabool Petanque Club, had enquired whether their former top player would be able to find a team in our neck of the woods.

Third venue for Belgium tour

After a little bit of a delay in receiving a response from my Belgian contacts, we are now just about there with finalising the details for our third petanque location of our Leagues Belgium trip next month (actually it will be the first location we visit).

As we plan to arrive at our Belgium base by mid-afternoon on the Friday, we now have the invite to ''nip'' down the road into central Middelkerke itself and visit PC De Zeemeermin (translated as The Mermaid) either before or after our evening meal.

Most of us are planning to make this visit, in preparation for our Saturday and Sunday matches, before returning home during the Bank Holiday Monday.

Just under 4 weeks to go now.....
