2023 - That was the Year...that was Looking back on 2023, and the events that have helped the Mornington Peninsula Petanque Club grow. In January we introduced a temporary new starting time to combat the heat until March. During march, thirteen members attended the Clubs 'working bee' prior to our fun 'Bring A Friend day'. We also held a dinner at 'Steeples'. April saw another Club Dinner at the 'Dava' Hotel. Attendances on our Sunday Game-Days were growing and June saw a new President elected, at the Benton Square AGM. We held two fun Club dinners in July at 'DoppioZero' both were well attended. Super team work was portrayed at our July 'working bee', a credit to all members involved. In August we held a very successful card/games afternoon at the 'Hilton', with tewnty two in attendance. September saw a bit of action, with not only the refreshing of our Club Website with a new up-dated look, but also the introduction of the local Community Hall for use after petanque for a hot cuppa and nibbles. We also introduced a new 'Super Pairs Competition' for the 3rd Sunday of every Month, with a slightly different slant on the rules! A 'Special Hats' day and raffle in respect of the 'Melbourne Cup' was a hit in November,as well as of course our Clubs well attended, big get-together 'Christmas Lunch', at the Mornington Tanti, in which just about everybody let their 'hair down'! All this, and not to mention our regular Monthly Newsletter. All in all an eventful year! Heres looking forward to a new, exciting and even more adventurous 2024, Happy New Year everyone.
