our members shoot more than boules

Aaron E. petanque fancier & gentleman about town, can be found battling on a different piste this season. He is up in Holly, Michigan at the Renassiance Festival as a part-time Captain of the Guard, and Part-Time bandit. I'm not sure which persona Aaron favors - but the bandit costume looks more comfortable.

I am planning to go up with a group on August 31st (the festival runs until September 28th). If you haven't been there, or just not for a while, it is well worth the visit. I am partial to the turkey drumsticks and jousting. That particular weekend (31st) is Buccaneer Fest - there are themed weekends all season long. I'll be in my pirate costume. I'll also bring along my "cannon boules" for an impromptu game or two.

Check it out!
