Saturday



Shirley didn't get any pictures at the Lexington Barbecue Festival this year, nor did she take any at Saturday afternoon's practice session at Finch Park.  The Finch Park practice was, however, very well attended, nonetheless.

She did take a couple of snaps at Terry and Sue Wien's home on High Rock Lake on Saturday evening.  I think we had around 35 people for supper and play on their five (5) well-lighted courts.  We stayed until around 10:30 to enjoy visiting around the campfire as well as the petanque.

Practice










Shirley was just too busy on Friday to take very many pictures as people began arriving in bigger numbers.  She did manage to get a few snapshots at the field and, later in the evening, at our house on Friday night.
