First Sunday play of 2015

Don't let the title of this post mislead you-- there has been petanque at Miller Park in 2015.  It's just that Shirley and I were in Texas, so this is the first regular Sunday play for us. 

We had a great turnout for our welcome home.  I counted fifteen players throughout the afternoon.  It was a little cold, as you can see from the coats, scarves, and sweaters.  You may also be able to tell that the first stages of the refurbishment and reconfiguration  of the Miller Park bocce/petanque area has finally started.  We hope to have our own separate petanque area when the project is complete.  The plan is for an area that will handle at least four courts of play at a time.  We plan to monitor the progress and put in our two cents worth if need be.

The project is supposed to be done within a couple of months.  Let's hope that is true. We hope to use the baseball field at the corner of Queen Street and Knollwood as our temporary playing venue, maybe starting as soon as this coming Sunday.
