Petanque in Jerome, Arizona

Everyone who came to the Open last year remembers the Jerome contingent! They went back home with the motivation to build a flat court for a change. Here's a report from Manuela & Bill:

We started the court after the Amelia Island tournament last year. Five months later it was completed. We worked through frozen ground, mud and moved tons of rock. We had to wheelbarrow in and out all the material. Now we have a flat court. We were spoiled after playing in Florida. Still across the street is our main court – the ghost town cemetery and parking lot that is between a 2 and 5 degree slope. If a boule goes over the edge – not to worry – we’ll get it later - 430 meters below in the next town.
We will be back again to Amelia Island for this year’s tournament. We are looking forward to seeing old friends and making new ones.

What a beauty!!
