Petanque Friday 27th August 2021.

Members of Burgundy Friends attended the first Petanque competition of the un-locked down year on The Promenade des Marbres in Autun. Included in the group was new member Ian.

Three mixed teams battled it out, the winner from each team going into the Grand Final. The final between Norman, Mark and Amanda was tense and exciting. It was a close run match with Amanda stepping out as the eventual winner.

In celebration a small libation was taken at the Brasserie de la Promenade.
