I used to live in Lyon 20 years ago, and watched with interest Petanque being played. I remember playing for fun a couple of times, and I think, throwing while standing still. Just wondered what is the primary family game in Lyon - Petanque, or "Boule Lyonnaise" the related game where you takes a run up before throwing? I'm going to buy a set of Petanque back here in the US and have found a set, but can't see the "Boule Lyonnaise" style set (appears they must be larger sized).
Anyway, fond memories of France.
