Boston pétanque in the news

After Chicago and Toledo here's Boston!

An elaborate - and witty - article about our friends of Mistral Club de Petanque and the FPUSA tournaments going on today at Clemente Field and Sunday at the club's facilities in Worcester.
Good show!

At the old boule game - Aug 4
Note: if you stay for a while on the Boston Globe site you have to register, but it's free.

By the way, it was also the Boston Globe that announced Thursday morning that France's new President, Nicolas Sarkozy, was expected shortly for a two week vacation in Wolfeboro, NH.
The French press - and public - were completely taken by surprise. Some papers even doubted the veracity of the article until the Elysée - the equivalent of our White House - confirmed the news on Friday with a brief statement that Mr Sarkozy went to the States with his family, on a commercial flight, to stay with friends.

It is probably the first time in history that a French President chooses the US for his summer vacation. He did pick a beautiful spot on Lake Winnipesaukee and we hope he gets the rest he deserves after an incredibly hectic 2007 so far.
