Where was everyone?

There were only five players at Miller Park this past Sunday! What's the matter, people?!

Better late than never

Shannon and Bo took a moment at Amelia to pose with their better-late-than never bronze medals for their third place finish in the Concours in the recent Lexington Barbecue Festival Petanque Tounament.  I had awarded them, and the team from Maryland (Toki and Faly) that they tied with, a cash award on the evening of the tournament, but did not have the medals available.

Congratulations, guys!

Leaving Amelia

Beautiful start to the day for the drive home.

Sunday at Amelia

Huge upset!  Thierry/Jacques defeatedClaudy/JP

Sunday saw yet another major shift in the weather.  This time for the better.  With the forecast predicting highs in the 70s, many of us made the changeover from jeans and sweatshirts to shorts and t-shirts.

Well, Saturday's results translated into Carolina having two teams in Concours A (Khalid/Abdul and Alex/w/Gilles).  One team in Concours B (Shirley/Gary) and all the others in the Consolante divisions.

Unfortunately, none of the Carolina Teams made it to the Semis, so no one went home with prize money.  Better luck next year!

The tournament Champions ended up being the familiar team of Marco Foyot and Bernard Martin.  They played a really great-- you might even say courageous-- game to come from behind and defeat Damien Hureau and his partner, Patrick Neauville.

The complete results should be posted soon-- probably on Facebook.  I'll keep you posted.
