Petanque in Georgia

Lamar Dodd School of Art in Athens, GA - east of Atlanta - has become a petanque "hotbed", under the guidance of this year's Professorial Chair Paul Kos.

Below you see the school's team "La Boule Dawgs", in a rural and a more urban environment. Nice graffiti!

And the school is preparing a dedicated terrain next to the new building as we speak.

This past weekend the team went to visit the folks at Park Springs Community in Stone Mountain. I don't know the end result but a wonderful time was had by all. How often do you see a bunch of college students challenge a 62+ retirement community? Only in petanque.

Kudos to Paul, Andy and all the competitors.
By the way, apparently the terrain at Park Springs is tops.
