Petanque 100 in the Triangle

With players all the way from Charlotte, Salisbury, Lexington, Winston-Salem, Greensboro and of course Raleigh, Durham and Chapel Hill, we were close to 40 to celebrate Petanque 100 this Sunday, at the Inn at Bingham School, a dream location for a petanque party.
We had a lot of fun, played, ate and drank very well!
And the kids had a blast playing croquet, badminton or plain hide & seek.

Two special surprises among the petanque crowd:
Christian, who seldom plays, but whose grandfather had a bar in Marseille, so the genes are there - and Andy, a 747 captain who had never played, but knows a thing or two about landing in the right spot.

Thanks a bunch to Francois for his generous hospitality!

Charming and beautiful place for petanque! We had a wonderful time and enjoyed meeting the people from the Triangle area. Many thanks to Francois and Philippe for collaborating to make this event come together so nicely.

The Inn would make a great base for those planning to be in the Raleigh/Durham/Chapel Hill Triangle or a destination location for a getaway-from-it-all weekend.
