Zaytouna tournament

We traveled into Austin Saturday for an evening petanque tournament at the Zaytouna Lounge, a Moroccan style tea house/hookah bar/petanque venue owned and operated by our Texas friend Amine Najah.  Nighttime play provided a welcome relief from the oppressive heat of the day.  It was a very pleasant way to spend an evening.

Shirley and I didn't fare too well, going only one for three against some good players.  The teams were pretty evenly matched though-- only one team won all three qualifying games and only two other teams managed to win two of three.

The good news is that the shooter/captain of the winning team was Carolina Petanque's own Walt Elder!  Don't let his TEXAS shirt fool you, he's still a member of our club with roots in the Boone, NC, area.  Congratulations to winners Walt and Alain and to the runners-up team of Hasu and Rudy.  Nice job guys.
