First miniBOULE Tournament at 227 Bistro

The first North American miniBOULE tournament was held on Saturday night at 227 Bistro in Rochester, Michigan. Though snow and ice fell throughout Detroit, this didn't keep the die-hard miniBOULE players away from the competition.
We marked off several courts in the very cozy "cigar room" of 227 Bistro. The paintings, soft lighting, and comfy furnishings really gave the miniBOULE experience a classy feeling. Between rounds we ate appetizers, drank wine, and socialized.

The complimentary steak dinners were delicious and huge! I especially enjoyed the 6-layer chocolate cake (Shhh don't tell my wife!) and we started off with great appetizers: Buffalo Mozzarella; Bruschetta; and fried Calamari.

The 1st (Dan) and 2nd (Ken) place champions with their prizes. It was a singles tournament with each player competing against each other player.

Why is it that we steadfastly promote Ricard with our flyers and prizes??? Do we like Ricard more or petanque??? I'm not quite sure, I guess you'll have to decide for yourself... ;-)
