So what did you do with your mother for Mother’s Day? Since my mom lives a 1000 miles away, we had a nice bbq for my boyfriend’s family. The weather held out until after we were done eating and playing petanque so it all worked out nicely.

Hopefully you and your mom had a nice day too.

    I like to cats tied up. I wish my neighbor would tie up her cat so it would stop crapping in my garage. Anyway, I played Petanque for the first time when I was on vacation in Mexico. Our resort was primarily French (people from France on vacation). I grew up playing Bocce at family functions so I knew the basics. I had a really good time and was even competitive. Since I got back I looked up the the Detroit Petanque Club and the Michigan Petanque club. I live in Ferndale (shhh dont tell) and saw that the Michigan Petanque club plays very close to my house. I am going to check them out Sunday. Cant wait….

    I am a MPC member and usually there on Sundays with my boyfriend and his brother. Let me know when you plan to go and I’ll make sure to be there. I am breaking in my competition boules and currently hate them (they are too soft and not banged up enough), so any excuse is worth it for me.

    Im going to try really hard to be there this Sunday at 1.
    Im anxious to see what this is all about. My wife, daughter and I will try to make it a day in the park.
    I dont have boules. If I catch the fever I will have to get a set. Where do you recommend?

    I’m the president of the Detroit Petanque Club and my good friend, Joe Zajac, is the president of the Michigan Petanque Club.

    We always have extra boules at the club meets – so just come by and we’ll hook you up.

    If you’re interested in eventually buying your own set (3 boules to a set) – then try:

    By the way, for those of you who are also curious about our clubs: (Sundays 1pm-6pm Royal Oak) (Weekdays 12-1pm / Saturdays 10:30am-5:30pm Campus Martius Park)

    Melissa: What type, size, weight boule did you end up purchasing?

    Oh and Mike, I’ll be there on Sunday.

    Those are very nice boules… if you need them “beaten up” then just do what I do, put them in a rock tumbler for a week with a bunch of nails/screws/rocks…

    it’s good that you bought the stainless steel – no oiling rusty boules.
