New Players

Danny wowed the newcomers with his shooting

Joseph Kilpatrick brought his friend and neighbor, James Stevens, to try his hand at petanque.  Joseph warned us that James was a good pool player and would likely have a knack for our game too-- and he was right.  James experimented with all three basic styles of pointing (rolling-in, semi-lob, and lob) and caught on fast.  At the end of the day, he promised to be back next Sunday.

We also had a walk-up player who just saw the group and came over to check out the activity.  Harold Lane tried his hand at petanque (he had played bocce before) and said he would come back again.

We were happy to have our two new players and look forward to their return.  Meanwhile, we're always glad to see the "regulars" too.  Rom, Barb, Joe Harrington, Fred, Bob, Terry, Sue Wien, and Gail joined Shirley and me in making the most of a b-e-a-u-t-i-f-u-l spring Carolina afternoon outdoors.
