Detroit Petanque Club in the Midst of the USA vs. Germany FIFA Viewing Party at Cadillac Square

In case you've been living under a rock, then you know there is a big international soccer (sorry, "Football") tournament being held, the 2014 FIFA World Cup.  Towards promoting soccer, there is a big jumbotron viewing party downtown at Cadillac Square Park with the live broadcast of the United States verses Germany.

And despite the huge crowds, space was allotted for our club to continue its own competition.
Pat A. and Fred K. were interviewed by Channel 7 News - about Petanque and Soccer

As you can see, the crowds are a bit - thick, but despite their walking through the court, we played on

Derek Tops the Standings

Upon our return to the indoor petanque court at the Penobscot building (Room 427) we discovered there was a little water damage (they're drying the carpet out) - but we played anyway being the hearty souls we are.  The cords of the heaters provided some interesting obstacles included in the game playing.  See you soon!

Fred Tops the Winter Rankings

Game play at the Penobscot building's petanque piste has been going rather nicely.  The carpet takes a boule roll/bounce/shot very realistically, and there are plenty of twists, rises, curves in the carpet/floor to give us some interesting boule travel.
