  • Marin Bocce Federation on Sept 2nd

    Marin Bocce Federation

    I don't play Petanque but I am hosting a Bocce Ball Tournament/fundraiser on September 2nd. I have rented out all of the courts at the Marin Bocce Federation in Marin County for that one day. Apparently people play Petanque there as well. You guys are welcome to use this as your meet up location or turn this into a Petanque tournament if you have enough of you that want to. Or you can join us for a Bocce Ball tournament. There is plenty of room for both. Please contact me at [masked] if you are interested in the details. I have pizza donations, fruit pies, wine, and other sponsors for the lunch that day and your entry will be a tax write off. It's a beautiful location.

  • Pastis and Pétanque #9

    Flood Park, Pétanque Court

    Pétanque (pronounced "pay-tonk") originated in Provence, France at the turn of the last century. It's played with metal balls (boules) and, like horseshoes and bocce, is simple to learn and fun to play. Read more about the game including a beginners guide to the rules and how to play at http://www.bafoe.org/... (http://www.bafoe.org/pages/Petanque_at_BAFOE/). Weather permitting, we'll gather at the Pétanque Court in Flood Park, Menlo Park and play casual games with 2 or 3 person teams. Bring your own boules if possible but there will be some spare sets available. The pastis, though the traditional drink of pétanque players in the South of France, is entirely optional but it will be available for a $2 contribution! If you want to split the cost of the $5 per-car park fee by car-pooling in, mention it in your RSVP so others can contact you to arrange a meeting place. If you want to come by CalTrain, mention it in your RSVP and a pick up at the San Carlos station can be arranged. We'll play from around 1:15 to about 3:30 to allow time to go for a well-earned drink afterwards at the Peninsula Friends of Europe gathering (http://www.bafoe.org/) which starts at 4:00. Don't forget to bring a hat, sunscreen and water to drink - there is no shade on the court. This event is also posted on Bay Area Friends of Europe.
