We had a great time at the Bloor Ranch in Manor, Texas, on Sunday.  Jeffrey and Linda Schryver hosted the first (annual?) inter-national ThinkTanque petanque tournament with a prize pool of ten thousand dollars and many of  the top teams from across the country showed up to try for first prize.  Winners were Yannick Laulhe from Canada and Bernard Martin of Florida.
