New leadership at CMSB

One of the members of IWGA is CMSB, the World Confederation of Boules Sports which groups the 4 boules related sports:
- sport boules (Lyonnaise)
- raffa (aka bocce)
- lawn bowls
- pétanque
The president, Mr Bruno-Lagier is retiring after 14 years at the helm.

Some people wonder why 4 such different sports should be grouped together. Others feel that only by joining forces they will - individually - be recognized on an international level.
