Hello to Hitesh; Nick; and Sam who Rejoined Us at Cadillac Square Park

Today Nick, Sam, and Hitesh re-joined us.  It is always good to see familiar faces at the petanque piste.  Our game (Pat/Nick/Mark/Hitesh vs. Tim/Jeff/Sam) opened up okay, but then Team-Pat pulled ahead with a round that gave them six (6) points !   Recovery from that is tough, but we took our time and laid down some tight points to bring us at 6 points to their 13 in the final.  We had an opportunity to reclaim some major points if we successfully shot out the cochonnet (Rule 13.ii) - I screwed up I didn't hit it after two throws. Oh well.

Campus Martius Park is going to be having a few different outdoor games installed for folks to get more involved in their park and their community.  I believe Corn-Hole;  Lawn Bocci; and Checkers/Chess are on the list.
