Fou de la pétanque other words "Crazy about pétanque". Although they're pretty far up North, the Portland Petanque Club likes to start their season early, whatever the weather.
Here's the report:

At the Fou de la petanque tourney held this last Sunday, the 22 of us had a good time playing, eating and enjoying the mostly sunny weather conditions. It was a nice turn out for our first event of the year and we certainly made the most of it. With 11 teams pairing up from the random draw, we played 2 games before breaking for lunch, a fine potluck spread as usual, then played the remaining 2 games of the afternoon. Although we had enough time to play a final match between the top 2 seeds, one of the players had to leave so we ended it there. Some of us decided to play a couple more games after the tourney had ended. Obviously we had some more petanque left in us.
Here are the results:
1st place: Joe C. & Matt Sharp
2nd place: Albyn & Sarah L.
3rd place: John H. & Jim L.
