Record number of participants celebrate Bastille Day 2019

Edmonds Petanque Celebrates Bastille Day


The Edmonds Petanque Club and guests celebrated French Independence Day on July 14 by taking part in the 7th Annual Bastille Day Petanque Tournament at the Edmonds Civic Playfield. A record 56 players filled the courts to test each other’s skills in the game of petanque and make new friends in this open-format tournament that is designed to welcome newcomers to the game.


After players had completed four games with randomly assigned partners over the course of the day, tournament directors tallied all scores and calculated this year’s winners. Tom Nunn of Edmonds took top honors by winning all four games and finishing with the highest cumulative score among all players. Edmonds Petanque Club President Michelle Martin showed her skills by finishing in second place; and Port Townsend ace Silas Holm came in third.


The Edmonds Petanque Club wishes to extend an appreciative “Thank You!” to all the sponsors of this year’s tournament. Their support adds encouragement and excitement to everyone’s play and allows the club to continue this worthwhile event in support of the Edmonds community. This year’s sponsors included Arista Wine Cellar, Arnie’s Restaurant, Cafe Louvre, Edmonds Theatre, Engel’s Pub, The French American Chamber of Commerce, Housewares Edmonds, Lagunitas Brewery, Pancake Haus, Panera, Petanque America, Red Twig Cafe, Rick Steves Travel, and The Walnut Street Café. At the end of the day, as one visitor proclaimed, “This was one heck of a party!” Without question the day’s success is due to the hard work of over 20 volunteers who pitched in to erect canopies and tables, prepare the courts, and organize the day. Thank you volunteers!

Annual Spring Petanque League

2018 Edmonds Petanque Club Champions


On Saturday, June 2, at the Edmonds Civic Playfield, Edmonds Petanque Club members celebrated this year’s league champions. After five intense weeks of league play, the winning team of Ed Cornachio and David Rockwell secured the Chris Guitton Cup, awarded to the top doubles team in yearly league play. David Rockwell has now secured highest honors in four of the past five years. Three times with his previous partner Scott Bernhard and this year with Ed Cornachio, David has demonstrated his outstanding skill at this challenging game. Ed Cornachio is hardly a newcomer to the sport, but this was Ed’s first trip to the winners’ podium. When congratulated on the outcome, Ed responded with a twinkle, “Thank you, but you should expect nothing less from an 88 year-old Italian-American!” Second place honors went to the all-French team of club members Brien Meilleur and Jacques Maussenet. Bronze medals were awarded to third place finishers Paul Dever and Forest Hertlein.


Saturday’s events also included a one-day tournament among the teams who had competed in the cup competition. In this event, Paul Dever and Forest Hertlein upset the league’s top finishers to emerge as champions of the one-day tournament. Second place honors went to Karen Crabb and Jim Klein, while Ed Cornachio and David Rockwell finished in third. Saturday’s day-long event culminated the club’s league play and recognized all participants as well as winning medalists. The day also allowed club members simply to enjoy each other’s company on a beautiful day at the petanque courts.
