Anthony Philip Triscari was born in Pinjarra in 1927. After completing his schooling in Pinjarra he moved to Cannington and then to North Hampton where he farmed fruit and vegetables including potatoes, cauliflowers and melons and was also involved with the Market Gardens for over three years.
Anthony returned to Cannington and spent many years as a truck driver transporting logs to the mills.
On retirement in 1991 he moved to Shoalwater. He was introduced to Petanque* by a friend and joined the Petanque Club which was in Rockingham but has since moved to Safety Bay, associated with the Safety Bay Bowling Club.
*Pétanque is a form of French boules usually played on hard dirt or gravel, but can also be played on grass or other surfaces. The goal is to throw metal balls as close as possible to a small wooden cochonnet or jack.
Remarkably at 90+ Anthony still enjoys playing Petanque. He attributes his fitness to the friendship and support he gives and receives as a valued member of the Club.
We had 63 players competing in the Safety Bay Triples, which included 9 Ladies teams , which is the most that has been to any competition for quite a while.
