It's been a long winter without our usual outdoor petanque club meetings. But Joe and Jeff do have a solution: miniBOULES

We've field-tested miniBOULES at different locations and found that you can shoot; point; push; roll; plombe; and perform nearly all of the same strategy as in regular Petanque. The pluses? You can also play indoors on carpet, in a conveniently smaller space without freezing your butt off!

The Michigan and Detroit Petanque Clubs will be holding a miniBOULES doubles tournament at 227 Bistro in Rochester, Michigan on Saturday, February 11th from 4 p.m. to 7 p.m.

Teams can arrive pre-selected or we can compose teams when you show up. Each team will play every other team, with the highest ranked two teams playing in a miniBOULES final. There will be prizes and skills tests in shooting and pointing plus 227 has excellent food at reasonable prices.

227 Bistro is located at 227 S. Main Street, Rochester, MI 48307 (248) 652-2585

Contact Joe - Jeff or Joyce to R.S.V.P. so we'll know how many courts to set-up.

Sorry about your luck DPC... MPC has the home court advantage, and we're not afraid to use it! ;-)

Perhaps you know the warp & weft of the carpet, but I handle my miniBOULES constantly and am not afraid to use my familiarity to advantage.
