Finally! a fusion of S.C.A. and Petanque

Today's game was a happy mixture of petanque players with Society for Creative Anachronism friends.  Matt S. and Cheryl D. were walking through Campus Martius Park and we pulled them into our lunchtime game.  Cheryl is an experienced boule player, but this was Matt's first petanque game - though admittedly, he has played bocci before.   I decided to make a true tournament - with Cheryl, Matt, and me representing the S.C.A. against the petanque regulars.  So how did we do?  Not bad at all.  Matt and Cheryl pointed really closely on a consistent basis while I made a few of my shots (a VERY few).  This put us out in the lead for a while until Pat's team got wise and caught up.  In the end, they took the win - but it was not a milk-run by any imagination.
We can see that Pat is extremely happy with the current status of the game

 Pat, Tim and Abu glorious after their victory, went over to the ping pong table to test our Abu's claim that he was the "King on Table Tennis" -  No reports back get on the result.

Matt (as usual) was spectacular at Petanque.  Afterwards we went over to try out the bean-bag toss . . .
