IST GAME to Carolina 13-11
2ND Game to Michigan 13-10
Guess we'll have to wait until next time to declare a winner.

Jeff Widen maintains an interesting blog realted to petanque in Detroit. Since Bob has family in the Detroit area, he visits there on occasion. The link below provides evidence that he often wins there just as he does here in the Carolinas. Way to go, Bob!

Danny and Sue made their way down from the mountains on Wednesday, July 22, to join us for play in Lincolnton. Tom, Augustine, and Susanne also found time for middle-of-the-week play. Carol had a commitment and was missed.
We hope to be able to play in Lincolnton on a more regular basis in addition to our commitment to continuing Sunday play at Miller Park. I'll be sending out an e-mail from time to time letting you know when we're there.
Once again we found ourselves looking for a little shade at Miller Park on the 19th. The area by the picnic table seemed to be favored by most since the sun doesn't get there until 4:30 or so in the afternoon, and it's not quite as intense by then.
We were pleased to have Michel's cousin, Freia, and her new husband, Indra, visiting with us from Belgium. They're spending some time visiting the US and Michel is serving as tour guide. Come back anytime, guys.
Bob and Josh were kind enough to remember Shirley's birthday of last Monday with a petanque-themed cake. Nice gesture and much appreciated.
