In temperate weather, surrounded by Nancy's and Bill's bright and flourishing gardens, 16 of us played in the 2017 Alliance Française de Grand Rapids Pétanque Tournament.
We all played well, except when the ground rose to meet our boule!
Linda and PJ FitzGerald and Ellen and Dan VanderMey made it to the final round and who won?
The FitzGeralds - congratulations!
People brought all manner of chips and salsas, as well as cookies, which we enjoyed with that fabled accompaniment to a game of pétanque, pastis, an aperitif enjoyed by many.
Hope to see you at next year's Pétanque Tournament!
