Seaside 2007

The lack of sunshine and the unusually arctic temperatures did not spoil the fun!
Twenty-six teams reported for duty on Saturday morning and play began at 9 am sharp.
Until Sunday night with a spectacular final: John Rolland & Roger Arpaia vs Freddy Cannesse & Juan Garcia. With car headlights to illuminate the court, and kerosene stoves to keep the public warm (thanks to the Tallahassee delegation!).
Tied 12/12, Roger shot the pig, but then Freddy & Juan won the ultimate 13th point, with the very last boule, in a match all present will remember for years to come.

It was great to see the many friends of the Kiss the Pig club again. With their ever warm welcome in a town made for petanque (we played on parking lots throughout) we all sure hope they'll do it again next year.

The FPUSA and Midwest blogs will certainly have lots of pictures and complete results as soon as their bloggers get home. Below already some impressions and - of course - the winners.
