Plenty of Petanque with Marvelous Weather

We had three games for Tuesday - mixing the teams with each game.  I see that Pat is back from his vacation, so we'll perhaps see more of the Honigman boys on the field. 

After a good rain, the court surface will play differently than usual, and you should make sure to adjust for what appears to be smooth ground but a bit softer than typical.  It is a good idea for teams playing "second" to watch their opponent's boule, see how it hits the surface and how far along it rolls.  This is when not leading with the cochonnet throw has its advantage.
