April Boules Day

Deric brought along a neighbor of his, April, who bowls but has never played petanque before. Let me tell you, she rolled in her boules within an inch VERY reliably. She has a natural pointer's talent. We (Wayne & Jeff - then Wyane left and TonyT replaced him) almost lost to them, but we caught up in the end... 13/9.

I've said this before, and I'll say it again! For some reason, girls just have a better throw than men. By now I've taught well over a couple of hundered people, and women almost always throw better boules right at the start than guys.

-->Joe's philosphic learning: Guys try too hard to THROW the boule at the target, girls, much more leisurely do the more correct type of petanque throw. They just rythmically swing their arm, and just let it go, and that consistancy will just kill you in a game with them...

Those women will just drive you nuts! (of course what about women won't do that!? ;-)
