Two Triplettes for Cadillac Square - Mike's Winning Streak Ends
James/Joe/Mark played against a decidedly "handicapped" Pat/Aaron/Clark - namely Clark a passerby didn't really have his head in the game - so in essence, Pat and Aaron were playing with 4 boules to 6...
But that's how things are in totally inclusive sports... and frankly, we've built up the clubs by welcoming in folks despite their "green-ness"
So kudos to Pat and Aaron... You still won seven points off the opposition - not bad.
My second game couldn't have been more fun... Mike and I were 0 (Zero) to Hitesh/Rob's 5 points - with 10 being the win. In a fluke, we scored 6 points with a lucky hit (no defensive boules can mean easy pick'ns). We still lost it in the end - but at lease held our own.
NOTE: I think the winning streak for Mike is over... two losses today!
