Upcoming trip

Gary and Shirley are planning another trip to Texas in the next few weeks. They will be visiting their daughter Lynda, son-in-law Rob, and two grandchildren Marin & Maeve for a few weeks. They also plan to play a little petanque! Here's a shot Shirley took of Gary, Rob, and Lynda playing in a church parking lot about a half mile from Rob&Lynda's house.

There is an active group at Lakeway, Texas that plays every Sunday afternoon. The last time in Texas, Gary and Shirley played about every
other weekend with the Lakeway group. There are two beautiful terrains at Lakeway Park among the live oak trees.
On the alternate weekends, they played with another large group at the French Legation right in downtown Austin. The pathways around the museum are small pebbles that make a very challenging playing surface. The player (second from left) in the baseball cap, Amine, from Morroco, is particularly talented and a great guy as well.There were also two individuals, Carol and Jeanne, who invited Gary&Shirley to play at each of their private residence terrains. So they are excited to be rejoining such an active petanque scene again in November. Jeanne already has a petanque party scheduled at her house to celebrate the opening of her second terrain!
