Indoor petanque in Atlanta

On Friday the French American Chamber of Commerce in Atlanta held their Annual gala called Passport To France. Hundreds of guests came for top class food, wine and an auction with wonderful prizes.

Since this year the highlight was on the French Riviera, they turned part of the ballroom into a casino. And with the assistance of our friends at Ricard and lively volunteers of Atlanta Accueil, we turned one corner into a boulodrome + pastis bar during the aperitif. Oriental carpet, marble and steel balls don't mix, so we used indoor boules ('petanque molle').

It was an unusual sight, thus even more fun!

I met several people who are keen to get a regular group together in Atlanta. Anyone else interested, email me and we'll put you on the map.
