An introduction to Germany's News Page and the Country Editor Mr. Raoul Lewicki
Welcome to the Germany News Page.
If you are not from Germany let me introduce myself.
My name is Raoul Lewicki. I am an American living in Germany since 1964. I am the only American that is President from a German Boule Club.
I founded the Club in 1992 in a very nice Wine village about 60 miles from Frankurt in a town called Buergstadt.I organized the Unterfranken League Group for our Petanque Section in the Bayern Division, and served 5 years as Sport Director.
I am proud to be apart of this fantastic Web-Site for Petanque players and friends of our Sport. In Gernany the Web Net is full of Good information in German from Club Homepage, Division, and Federation. Therefore I'm sure that our page here will not be visited by many German speaking players. With this in mind my Goal is to use this News Page to inform the English speaking Petanque group with the News and Boule Tips from Germany and hope that we will have many visitors. German Clubs and Groups may send your new items to me in German at my e-mail address here which I will translate in English.
Should you have any questions please feel free to ask.
Alles les Boules !
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.
