Morganton on Thursday afternoon.

First Walt, then Shirley, and now Bo!

It looks as though Carolina Petanque is on a roll producing USA National Champions for 2016, 2017, and 2018! Congratulations, Bo!

Last 2017 play at Miller Park for the Joneses

Shirley and I are almost ready to head for our Texas holiday trip to see the grandkids. We played at Miller Park for the last time this year on Sunday.

Fall in Carolina

Fall Colors                                                    

Pleasant fall day in the sunshine at Miller Park. Shirley's team was on the losing end of that 13-1 final game. Not too common!

Miller Park on Sunday after the Saturday Panache

Some of us showed up again at Miller Park on Sunday after a long day of petanque on Saturday at the panache. It was a calm, relaxed crowd on Sunday compared to the hullabaloo of thirty-six players, a cookout, and a "birthday" cake for Carolina Petanque's Tenth Anniversary on Saturday.
