Photo album & slide show
( 3:10 min, with sound)
The actor/players were dressed in early 1900 garb and played with nail studded boules. The gentleman on the right with the beautiful hairdo played Jules Le Noir.
The whole "pieds tanqués" part was played, and followed by a game of the "old guard" against today's champions, Quintais, Suchaud, Loy, Lacroix, etc..
Then a couple of speeches and a a very nice traditional dance.
Then the bar opened, to everyone's delight -- it was quite hot.
The time for me to present our "American Salute to Pétanque Album" and mingle.
An unforgettable day!
