Northside Park Wheaton

18 Apr

The weather was perfect for a great day of petanque on our beautiful new Northside Park terrain. Everyone was getting back into their pointing and shooting shape after a long Chicago winter and delayed spring.

Our friend from Germany, Werner Liebelt, was our guest of honor for one of our summer picnics. Many delicious dishes. Bob A. was ourĀ  “grill meister”, serving some mighty tasty brats. It was an entire afternoon of many games and great fun. Werner presents the Worrstadt Club shirt to Dan.

Crowded Terrain

4 May

A beautiful day at Memorial Park. Plenty of petanque action. The terrain was a little crowded. We look forward to the day when we’ll have more space at Northside Park. Hopefully soon. Support our new terrain plan and construction. Don’t need money, just moral support.

Congratulations JACK & ZIGGY
