There's No Business like Snow Business



Some key learnings from the northern petanquers... Petanque CAN actually be played in the snow! Circle drawing is very easy. Snow-play favors the pointer, and challenges the shooter. Dan and I put in 2 games despite the 20 degree weather... It's amazing, did you realize that a wet, frozen boule still doesn't freeze to your bare hand in that weather??? You learn something new everyday!

from a profesional point of view you can not play petanque in the snow, like you can not play petanque in the sand.

You can play petanque anywhere that friends want to play... The snow just makes for a more interesting terrain. (the gloves make for an interesting twist, but you can work with them!) Some petanque is better than no petanque in my book! ;-)

Joe, MPC!!!

but playing in the snow makes it a game of plumbing. There is not as much skill required just luck.
