We were very encouraged by the discussion. The Morganton officials seem to be genuinely interested in adding petanque to the impressive list of activities offered at Catawba Meadows Park .The site they have planned for us is close to parking, playgrounds, restrooms, refreshments, a nice restaurant, and the beautiful greenway along the Catawba River. And, when I say close, I mean a walk of a few hundred yards!
The plans call for a playing area of approximately 33 by 33 meters. That should be 16 full sized courts. If so, we would be able to hold tournaments for 64 doubles players or 96 triples players! That would enable Carolina Petanque to become more involved in FPUSA regional and national play should we choose to do so.
Exciting times! Maybe something by the beginning of the year (or before!)?
