Dunstable

Boule

Leader/Coordinator: John W

Aims and Objectives of the group:
To enjoy the fresh air as we attempt to play a competitive but friendly game of boule.

Any expertise needed:
Not really. Strength to throw a metal ball and a good aim are necessary.

Equipment needed (rough costs if any):
The group has all the equipment needed.

Maximum number permitted in the group: 24

Location, day and time of meetings:
First and third Wednesdays each month. Meet at the bandstand in Grove House gardens at 2.00 pm. (if it is raining then, or it has been in the hour since 1.00 pm - that day is cancelled)

A brief description of a typical meeting:
We collect a nominal 50p each week as subs.
After registration we collect the equipment from the store and split into 2 teams and commence battle on the lawns nearby.
Always finished by 3.30pm, with the equipment put away.
Weekly scores are computed, and the 3 highest scorers receive prestigious awards at our annual winter meal. During the winter months, when we are unable to play, we keep in touch with a monthly coffee afternoon on the third Wednesday.

Revised: May 2020
