Detroit Bouleodrome Heating Up

Alpha has been pointing in some very tricky boules

 The surface for the indoor petanque court has really presented some nice twists for the players.  We have to adapt our shooting (allowing for higer bounces) and our pointing throws: the center edging on the mats makes for some strategic cochonnet placement; but all of these factors make the game quite a challenge.  There's plenty of surface remarks to give advantage to those players "in the know" - but everyone has been open to offering advice on how the boule will travel.
