First competition of the year was at home club of Gardonne on Saturday. 28 teams entered (triplettes). We felt hard done by with a tough draw. First round was up against the Ladies team who are currently champions of the Dordogne. We won 13-7 to progress to the next round, I was playing particularly well as premier pointer, Pierre was also in good form. Second round we came up against another big team, David, former champion of France, his partner and son. In a hard fought game they beat us 13-11 relegating us to the complimentaire. Here we came up against another very strong team led by Bernard playing with his brother, Gerard and wife Chantalle, they blew us away 13-7. Still we got a qualifying win, onwards and upwards.
