Petanque at McCormick Place

At the end of September, a week before the move, we animated a 'mini-boulodrome' in Chicago, for Maison de la France, the French Government Tourist Office.
Thousands of travel professionals visit the ITME Fair every year, and our booth attracted many curious visitors. Such as the dance groups from Fiji and New Zealand, as well as a certain Jim from Iowa whose skills were unbelievable for a first timer.
Of course we made everyone give it a try and stressed the potential of pétanque as an ice breaker for groups and meetings.

Many thanks go to Anouk, our graceful and friendly host, and Joe and Denise from the Michigan Petanque Club who came to assist.

Joe's aboriginal guests look like they were having a heck of a time. Great display!
