Edwards family on the move

Kirk, Bo, and Parker traveled a bit this weekend, meeting Marc and Augustin in Hildebran, NC, at a new park in the town. “The park was just gorgeous with a huge pavilion and restrooms next to the court” said Kirk. 
They played for a few hours until hunger and heat drove them to go to a local pizza shop for some sustenance and cold beverages.  It was good timing, because while they were there a thunderstorm came through the area and kept them from playing for an hour or so.  After the rain tapered off, they returned to finish the competition between Hickory and Spruce Pine. Ultimately, Hickory prevailed with excellent pointing and shooting by the Hickory team.

The following day the Edwards family met up with Kaye (Kirk’s Mom), and they traveled to Charlotte, NC, to go to Carowinds amusement park.  There they met Cruz, Kristi, and family for some fun.
The Edwards family had to leave a little earlier for the drive back and in order to stop by Kaye’s house. They decided to stop and have dinner at Bravo restaurant in Charlotte and discovered a petanque court. “After dinner, of course we had to throw some boules around and teach some of the staff and spectators the game of petanque” said Kirk. The restaurant was very open to the club using the court anytime.
