Four of our Lincolnton members made the drive over to Nevin Park in Charlotte to join Frank, Denyse, Khalid, Shirley, and myself for a Monday morning session of play.
Spirited, fun play.
Spirited, fun play.
We had a nice turnout with most of the regulars plus Danny, Sue, Kirk. Bo, and Parker down from the NC mountains.
Shirley's new boules got a debut and she seemed to be happy with them.
Beautiful time of the year in the Carolinas! Didn't even have to set up umbrellas to be comfortable.

We had ten people at Miller Park today: Nelson, Rebekah, Gail, Rom, Joseph, Bob, Terry, Preston, Sherry, and a new player named Marci. We have Sherry to thank for recruiting Marci, both of whom (along with Preston) are now connected to petanque via Meetup.com . In addition, we had two people walk up who were interested in learning more about playing, so I gave them the e-mail address to sign up for updates.
Sherry, Terry, and Preston continued their streak of playing well for having played for such a short time, and Marci picked the game up quickly.
Later in the afternoon, a woman named Mireille (pronounced "mee-ray") stopped by (from Meetup.com). She is French and lives in Winston-Salem. She wasn't interested in playing, but was happy to see an aspect of French culture and speak French with someone. She is very, very nice and I think she would enjoy meeting other French speaking people in our group.
I gave Preston the Carolina Petanque e-mail address. He is interested in more opportunities to practice/play during the week. Are we playing this Wednesday? If we do, Nelson said he can do it if play begins at 10 (his classes begin earlier on Monday and Wednesday).
I'll send you photos tomorrow a.m.

Please remember Fred in your thoughts and prayers as he recovers from recent minor surgery. We'll look forward to his return soon.
