With the Alliance Francaise

This announcement by Rebekah resulted in a good turnout (around 25) at Nevin Park on Saturday:


Carolina Petanque will be playing at Nevin Park on Saturday, August 22.  The weather is still considerably hot at this time of year, so we will begin playing at 9:00 AM. We will play for as long as we can, temperatures permitting.  In the event of rain, we will likely try for the following weekend on August 29.

Unlike our  June event, this will be a simple, low-key get-together.  If you're interested in joining us for pétanque, please bring those items which you might need (water, snacks, chairs).  As always, Carolina Petanque will have extra boules available for use.  We also will have 1-2 canopy tents in place for additional protection from sun and heat.

It is our hope that the interest by AF members will help us establish more frequent and consistent pétanque play in Charlotte.  If you are interested in assisting with these efforts, please let me know.

If you are interested in having your email address added to the official Carolina Petanque email list, please let me know.  Carolina Petanque sends 1-4 emails per week regarding scheduled play, tournament information, etc.  

Should you have any questions regarding pétanque, Carolina Petanque, or the scheduled August 22 date, please do not hesitate to contact me.  I look forward to see you on the 22nd!

(My apologies for not also writing this email in French.  I do not have enough time to attempt this and consult my dictionary!)

Hi Rebekah,

A quick email to thank you and the very nice Carolina Petanque team for the great day we spent together on Saturday.

It was really a pleasure to discover and play with new Carolina Petanque members who impressed us with their skills and their kindness.

For sure we'll stay in touch and will closely consult your schedule.

See you soon and a great week to both of you,
