November 25 – Though our club’s tournament is officially over for 2006, we couldn’t resist having one more day of boules playing. On a cold, crisp late Fall day, and with autumn leaves all over the courts, the VOMPC held its first ever “Gobboule Gobboule” Turkey Tournament. Thirty players showed up and Tournament Director Ed Porto efficiently organized 10 melee triplette teams. Savory Thanksgiving leftovers and other food were brought by everyone for a wonderful midday feast. Thanks go out to Peter Wellington for his delicious Wellington Vineyards wines that he provided. As the afternoon progressed and the weather became colder, the following teams were the winners:
1st Place: Shannon Bowman/Barbara Hall/Stephen Paulsen
2nd Place: John Byrne/Peter Wellington/Albert Woodbury
3rd Place: Cynthia Heinrichs/Jean-Marie Letellier/Ed Porto
