The EABC was pleased to once again hold a Petanque social and mixer as our June meeting in 2016. The event was held on June 14th and we enjoyed the game of petanque, friendly conversation and networking.
Our very own Philippe Boets was the host and fun director for the evening and supplied the equipment and game instructions. He also brought along some members of the island’s petanque club to help organize the play and help with rules and technique. It was a lot of fun and we hope to do this again next year.
Walter Cereghetti, owner of Bright Mornings Cafe, provided the food and beverages.
You can learn more about petanque at Philippe’s website: www.petanque-america.com. There is also a Facebook link for the Amelia Island Boules Club where you can catch up on the local activities. News4Jax recently did a nice piece on the club and you can view it here.
