Two dozen players!

We had another great turnout at Miller Park yesterday.  Shirley counted 24 people!  Ronnie, Faye, Joseph, Rom, and Barb were among those we hadn't seen for awhile.  Also, Bob Moyer rejoined the group after having been absent since August (!) on his travels.  Germany and Louisiana were two of the more distant places on his journey.

The mountain crowd showed up for the first time in awhile as well.  Kirk, Bo, Parker, Uijin, and Lauren had attended a hot air balloon rally in Statesville (NC) on Saturday, so they made the trip over to join us on Sunday.

Many of the crowd who are planning to attend the Amelia Island Petanque America tournament in November chose to play with their doubles partner in order to get in a little teamwork practice.  Juan and Fred, Kirk and Bo, Uijin and Lauren, along with Augustin and Marc were among those doing so.

Sunday play on the 28th will be in Lexington.  Shirley and I will be having house guests for the weekend who will be attending the Lexington Barbecue Festival  on Saturday.  We're hoping that many of them will stick around on Sunday for petanque.  Everyone on the CarolinaPetanque mailing list is invited to join us on Sunday-- whether or not one  plans to attend the festival on Saturday.
