Abu Shooting Petanque at 100%

Lots of fun today at Cadillac Square Park. Clark has been pointing in without a miss; and Abu has been shooting better than Pat (I dare say...) - Sam has been taking some shooting throws to gain in experience. Buzz has been using his serpentine-English pointing throw with much success; and Eric has been "push-pointing" nearly 100% of the time.

I'd love to see a match of: Pat; Abu & TimC. against Jeff; MarkW. and Clark - it'd be a good game.

We aren't alone in the petanque universe... there's a great club down in Chicago which hold tournaments every now and again: Chicago Petanque Club and here's a link to a YouTube video describing a 4,000 team (yes, 4,000 = 12,000 players) tournament in Marseilles which is a direct elimination.

See you tomorrow!
