It turned out to be a beautiful day for Petanque. We arrived early and got some good practice games in. Philippe, Jean Luc, Art, Jim and Judy won many of their early matches. Barbara came along to support the team, and graciously took these photos (after lunch - we were so engrossed we forgot about taking pictures prior!!)
This was a carousel doubles format and each player was randomly matched with another, changing partners each match. We played 2 matches, then broke for lunch. The final match decided who would be in the round of 16 and progress toward the finals.
We were close but, alas, did not make the final cut. Here are some photos from the afternoon....
Judy and Gilbert couldn't win against the young lady to their right - she was a great shooter and got into the next round.
It was lots of fun...can't wait til the next tournament!
