Petanque in Royal Oak with the Michigan Petanque Club - a hot Sunday!
Joe Zajac, President of the Michigan Petanque Club reporting in:
Hi Guys! Every weekend is getting busier and busier, and this upcoming Sunday (June 7th @ 1 pm) is sure to be even bigger!
Everyone's schedule is filling up with summer-time activities so this weekend may be the last open weekend before the busiest summertime months... Let's really get a strong showing this weekend and start the year off with a big bang!
Looking forward to seeing you all there, Joe.
Here is a nice pic of last weekend's play... very competitive games! But even more fun with our growing ranks amongst our cheering section these days!
It is easy to get to the Michigan Petanque courts in Royal Oak. From the South, just take I-75 up to Exit 61 (11 Mile) and make a left (West) on to 11 Mile, then after 7 blocks, another left (South) on Campbell. You'll hit E. 6th Street in 2 blocks, we're at the Northernmost part of the VFW Park. If you haven't been there yet, it is a beautiful, purpose-built petanque court (space for 5-6 games at once!) with shade trees, picnic tables, and a nearby bathroom facility. Joe will have plentyof extra sets of boules on hand for players.
