Tournament in Frostproof, FL

Today started a week-long tournament at Camp Inn Resort in Frostproof.
There are close to 100 regular players at the resort.
Camp Inn Social Director Peggy Andrews threw out the first boule and the games were off.
Petanque is the fastest growing activity at Camp Inn and many other resorts in the area.
It was a bit windy and chilly today but the spirits were high.

Thanks to Dennie Henley (from MI) who sent us these first pictures.

Wow! Looks like another place to put on my list. Retirement has never looked better.

One question though... I see 14 or 15 boules on the ground... how many on a team in those games?

Indeed - often because they are short on courts - they make teams of 4 or even 5 players, two boules each.
A slight variation from the formal rules, but as I often say: "There is no petanque police. As long as you're having fun!"
