Petanque 100 in Irvine, CA

And so did Orange Accueil, a nonprofit that welcomes newly arrived French speaking families in Orange County. There are "Accueil" organizations in most larger metropolitan areas that have saved newcomers a lot of headaches in their new environment.

The group of friends of Orange Accueil regularly uses a pétanque terrain that was laid out twenty years ago by a French teacher (and avid player) at a school in Irvine. The exact location follows.
There were 9 triplets teams. With families in all around 60 people. Having a good time.
Thanks a lot to Véronique.
