Last weekent four Boulefrogs, Earl, Gigi, Stan and Richard traveled to Brooklyn, NY for the New York Petanque Open. To say the courts were challenging would be an understatement. The terrain was co0vered with pebbles the size of walnuts. Direct tosses and shots would often fly off in another direction. Even the top players suffered from the rocks, but they showed their skill by adjusting to the situation and they made some amazing points and shots. While the Boulefrogs finished out of the money, Stan and Richard placed 4th in the Consolante B and walked off with a bottle of wine each.

Even though many of the competitors were world class we had a great time. We learned from the pros and played 7 or 8 games with some of the best. Plus we had some great French food at some of Brooklyn’s best restaurants.
