Pétanque et Piqnique in the Park

Bonjour les amis,

I just bought a shiny pétanque set that I can't wait to play with you. I have too much going on in August, so it won't be until September before I can knock your ball into the park (literally). With school back in and classes happening, I think everyone will be around...

For the picnic: 

I don't consider it a picnic if we're sitting at the shelter. Let's just eat on the grass and move some of the picnic tables to our area. Will some of you men help with this? They're super heavy. 

Alcohol isn't allowed in the park, especially in glass containers. But we can pay $200 for an alcohol permit and reserve the shelter, refundable if all the garbage is cleaned up. I prefer to play sneaky-drinker, but if anyone is opposed to this we can pay for the permit. Let me know. It's only fun when we're all having fun.

C'est tout. Bon weekend à vous tous!

    We had fun meeting each other, playing unofficial pétanque, and of course, eating. Also, we spoke French the entire time! New record for this group!

    I'm offering to pay the annual fee simply because I love French.
