Petanca Competition – Results

Steve & Jorge

Another successful event was fully enjoyed by all involved. It was a wonderful sunny afternoon of competition and determination to win the coveted trophy.
The knockout stage after the initial round robins was covered for both winners and losers as prizes were available for all 16 teams involved.Along with the points scored this allowed us to place everybody down to the last.
The 8 losing finalists ended up with 2 Germans in the final. The winners final also included a German national, Rosie,  therefore determination was there to not let a famous football scenario happen again!.
Steve Scott and Jorge succeeded where footballers have failed by winning the competition. Runners up were Rosie Peschel and Calixto.
Cath Baker (with partner Arturo in last year’s winning team) was determined to improve on last year’s booby prize for finishing last by coming in equal 5th.
The prize for being last was a small bottle of water but of the fire type – Madronho won by Sandra Williams and Silva.
The BBQ was a great success, with chicken, salad and crisps enjoyed after the competition finished. Beer and wine was flowing throughout the afternoon to quench the thirst from this hot competition.
There was also music and dancing with one particular dance being the Portuguese brush dance. This is where couples are dancing and then there is a single dancer with a brush who steps in and swops somebody´s partner for the brush and so it continues.
A Date for your Diary………….Another competition is planned for the 2nd of September.
