The front page and the news-pages might be a bit erratic in the next weeks as we install our new system. So : Do not be afraid!
We are doing a complete rework of petanque.org - all of out static html-files are being moved into our database, and as this is a really boring and slow job things may look a bit silly at times. And some details will be missing. AS of no our main task is to add the name of the contributors in the news-section as well as letterpresses for our images.
So just stay tuned, it will all be fixed one day. Currently the temperature in Norway (where petanuqe.org has it's technical development department) is is so low that there is no risk of losing development-hours due to the fact that the guys are out playing petanque. (Until we get electrically heated boules that is..)
And another joyfull message: Germany has finally joined petanque.org. Raoul Lewicki has joined us, and will cover the german scene for us!
A warm welcome to Raol from petanque.org!
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.
