Pat is Shooting Tir au Fer

I really am impressed with Pat's shooting, always right on target - but today he has really shown how far he's come - he's shooting "tir au fer" (iron-to-iron). Where the typical shot comes in along the ground (defeated by any blocking boules) - the air shot and the more deadly "tir au fer" shot doesn't use the ground at all, thus a very dangerous weapon in the petanque player's arsenal.

I'm delighted with the large turnout today, two games going at once, and if we make doubles teams, perhaps 3 (or more!)

No surprise, Pat, TimC., and Eric top the rankings, but 1 more game (and win) for Mikey will put him up as king.

See you out there!
