Here's a report on last weekends' tournament from Bill (aka TON'R Bill):
The Dallas Pétanque Group held their annual “Start of Summer Pétanque Tournament and Pique-nique” on Sunday, 22 June 2008. This year the players braved both the blazing sun and some stiff competition. Nine teams competed and after all the dust settled three teams were triumphant. The Champion’s Trophy and Gold Medals went to Jean and Pascal. The Silver Medals were claimed by Jimmy and Stéphane and Bill and Geo garnered the Bronze Medals. The organization went smoothly and everyone had a great time both for the Pétanque games and the sampling the vast array of foods for the Pique-nique. Pétanque is growing in the Dallas area with new faces seen at our tournaments.
The Dallas group has 2 play locations, which we've added to Petanque in the USA
