The Day After the Detroit Tournament

For some, a full day of petanque (and a tournament no less) just isn't enough. So these hardy souls joined us on Sunday at the Michigan Petanque Club pistes in Royal Oak to play some more boule.

It was a brilliantly sunny day, and the pistes were perfect for play. Philippe Boets brought along some petanque boule displays. Ziggy and April from Chicago as well as Mamary from Philadelphia decided to visit the MPC pistes for further victory; Nicole (Detroit) and Charlene (Colorado) (they partnered in the tournament) were also played well in Royal Oak; and we were joined by Denise Burgy and her sister, Sally, as well as Camille Pontois - an excellent pointer; and Michel and Jeannette decided to show off their new outfits (Jeannette is in the captain's hat and shirt). The Didierjean brothers (Cyrille & Greg) also were there - Greg zoomed in on his bike at around 250 mph! James and Cheryl with their little princess Celia in tow, Danny C.; Joe Z.; Mike R.; and Jeff Widen. Then a little later, Bob Moyer rolled up in his vintage volkswagen van.
