December 2000: All our databases are now integrated into one big, cozy lump of data. We have some new ideas on what to do, but it might take some time..
Publishing system for all petanque-federations
There are many petanque-pages on the web, some good and some not so good. But they all share the same problem: It is really hard to maintain them and to keep them updated. At least if you do not know anything about HTML and FTP, or tings like that.
So we have made a solution for all that do not know of these things: A complete publishing system for the web - all you have to do is type in the words you want to publish, upload the images with your browser, and the rest is done automatically.
It is free for all petanque federations - just drop us a line and we'll set it up for you.
Our only demand is that we can use the content here at petanque.org, with references to the originating site of course!
If you wonder what it can do a sample site is already built using the system, www.motoguzzi.no, all about italian motorcycles in norwegian. If you need an easy to use system to maintain your petanque-federation site - drop us a line, and we'll help you out! Have a look at the specifications here: publicius
News for Clubs
CLubs may now publish their news here at petanque.org - all that is needed is to be registered in the club database. Check out the club-news page for more info.
All search-dialogs are to be modified a bit, to enable more complex searches. And searches are to be implemented across-the-board, to search all data. For example, to present everything we have registered about one country.
For some reason the worl championship in petanque is held in the buzzling metroloplis of Tahiti this year! So pack your swimwear and go there at once!
Finally petanque has found a new home, as a bar game! Althought it might take a few years befor the darts-boards get the boot and petanque moves in everywhere it has started to happen
The Financial times has finally understood that Petanque is the game of the future, with our long time friend Mike Pegg, International umpire. "It may not be the sunny south of France but even on a chilly Devon day, British fans are warming to the charms of pétanque"
This is a product we have mentioned earlier, just because it is sooooo French. A Tour de France petanque-set! This is more French than a baguette!
We stumbled across a petanque-game for the andoid-system. From the produces description:"Petanque in St Tropez is a 3D bowls game, as played on the mediterannean coast." We do not have an android-phone to test it on, perhaps one of you can help us out?
The world wide petanque and boule community, by and for users.
