Steven and Elisabeth join us from Germany
Monday's game was moved across the street to Campus Martius Park because of the extremely long lines waiting for free Wendy's Bacon Burgers. Aha! I should have realized that all I needed to do to bring 5,000 people to play petanque was to give out free $2 hamburgers... The line was considerable, running the length of Cadillac Square Park, then wrapping around the street.
Visiting from Germany, Steven and Elisabeth are here visiting Steven's family. They're avid petanque players and were more than welcome to play some boule with us on Friday. We also had Eliot, a friend of Alpha's, roll over to play some petanque (he's played before as well).
