Petanque in Winston-Salem

Last week Bob had told us about some nice bocce courts at Miller Park. He did not exaggerate one bit. Wide enough and a good surface.
In a convenient location, with lots of trees and a couple of benches. They are sometimes used during weekdays but on weekends there's hardly anyone.
The city is actually redoing the side boards and revamping the 4 courts.

Even the area around the bocce courts is adequate for pétanque and - if ever there's a crowd - provides enough room for 8 concurrent games or 48 players in total.
The adjacent 24 horsehoe pits even have bleachers and floodlights!

On Sunday Oct 29 at 1:30 pm we will continue where we left off in Lexington last week.
The more, the merrier! It's the first day of Standard Time so it will be dark by 5pm.

For easy directions here's the Google Maps link.

I see you are working hard already, lets see if we can find a home for Petanque America Open 2007.
