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.

Petanque PICNIC Sun. Oct 26

21 Oct

It’s going to be a BEAUTIFUL day this coming Sunday, Oct 26. Forecast calls for almost 70, all SUNSHINE, and zero percentage chance of rain. Petanque Perfect. So, let’s have a PETANQUE and PICNIC starting at noon. I may even fire up the grill for a dog or two.
Bring a dish to share and a folding chair. Sunscreen might be a good idea. (the eternal optimist). This may be our last big petanque feast for 2014. So, see you at Memorial Park this Sunday, noon.
