French Students Learn About Petanque

A group of French students from Falling Creek Middle School visited Les Boulefrogs’ courts to learn about France’s favorite pastime.  Teacher Jane  Emrick and nine eighth grade French students were enthusiastically introduced to petanque.  They took to the game quickly and enjoyed a quick game on a beautiful morning.

Rainy Day Petanque

Die-hard Boulefrogs don’t let a little rain thwart their game. Bill Hase, John Whitworth, Beth Hase, John Hailey and Jeff Stroman discuss “jack in a puddle” after a mid-game shower.
