Setup day

Shirley offers her opinion
We (Danny and Sue with Shirley and me) made the eight hour drive from North Carolina to Zanesfield, Ohio, on Thursday in order to have a little free time on Friday.  We spent our day in and around Zanesfield visiting with Zanesfield Petanque Club's president and number one promoter, Bo Johns, and his family.

We helped a little bit with some of the last-minute setup of signs, banners, scoreboards, and the like, then spent some time getting used to the courts.  Bo had set up for play eight newly-created courts in addition to the five full-time, existing courts they already had in Fawcett Park.  The latest word is that the Club may end up being able to retain use of, what was originally thought to be, a temporary area for the eight new courts.

They will have thirteen full-time courts and an overflow area that could easily allow for three more.  Sixteen courts should be more than adequate for tournament play for their small town.  It's a wonderful setup.
