Petanque in Palm Springs, CA

Unheard of until recently - except at Club Meds, where petanque is standard fare - luxury resorts in the US are starting to include petanque as yet another way to entertain their guests.
Excellent idea!
Here's an example at the posh Parker Palm Springs Resort & Spa.
Click on "Play" and you'll see petanque right between, and 'on par' (couldn't help it) with golf and tennis. After you open the petanque screen concentrate on the picture. Saw it?

Very nice, and kudos to whoever wrote the rules: they're brief, clear, and very funny!
