Petanque on Mars?

After the exciting events in Rochester, MI -- we now return to regular programming.

NASA's spacecraft Phoenix has just landed on Mars, and from the first photographs it looks like a perfect surface to play pétanque! Who knows, one day we'll see:
First Intergalactic Petanque Tournament - Mars - April 1, 2112. (BYOB)
Am I the only lunatic (hey, another "ball"!) who sees dirt and thinks petanque??

For beating the Earth World's Record on Mars, you have to compensate for a 41 minute longer day. So you'd have to play for 49 hours and 23 minutes for the new record...
