Our first trip to Asheville petanque!

We played in Winston-Salem on Wednesday, Morganton on Thursday, and now Asheville on Friday as our tour of Carolina Petanque continues. Michel Baudoin has purchased a church that he intends to renovate and re-purpose into a French restaurant. He currently operates BOUCHON at 62 N Lexington Avenue in Asheville.

The new facility is to be located at 184 New Haw Creek Rd, Asheville. Michel is happy to have on site parking at the new location, as downtown parking can be limited. There is to be a bar, several petanque courts, and, of course, fine French food.

We had a great time playing on Thursday and meeting some new people. One first-time player, Don, did exceptionally well and even ended up buying some recreation boules! Hope he continues to enjoy the game for many years to come.
