THEY DID IT! Guiness World Record Broken!

At 9:10 EDT, after two cold nights of temperatures in the 40s, 12 staunch men and women from around the country shattered the world record for continuous pétanque play. The previous record of 40 hours and 9 minutes had been set on July 22-23, 2006, in Bad Bevensen, Germany.

Not satisfied with merely breaking the record, they are continuing on in their quest to set a new mark of 48 hours. You can follow their attempt in real time from the Heritage Festival in Rochester, Michigan via the live video feed here:

Congratulations / Félicitations to everyone involved.
