 We had a great time at David Caldwell Historic Park (Tanger Bicentennial Gardens) in Greensboro on Saturday.  Johnny Galbreath, Botanical Gardens Superintendent, invited Carolina Petanque to partner with Greensboro Parks and Recreation and present a day for petanque play in the hopes of beginning the process of establishing regular petanque play in Greensboro.

Many, many thanks to all the Carolina Petanque members and supporters who came out to make the point that there IS a lot of interest in petanque in the area.  The day was successful to the extent that Johnny promised Shirley and me he plans to proceed with the construction of a petanque terrain in the park.  Great news!
