Way back in may Ray Ager requested that we should make it possible to get new forum postings as an e-mail. And now it is here - your chance to get a lot of petanque-mail in your inbox.
This is how it all works:
First you have to sign up with your e-mail address. Then we send you a mail to confirm that you really would like to do this, and then you are subscribed!
All postings in the forums are then mailed to you, and all mail contain a link to remove you from the mailing-list at once. There is no delay or possibility to get a digest. You either get it all ,or do not get it.
We do not know how many mails this will generate - but is is extremely easy to unsubscribe.
And of course:
We will not give away your e-mail address. (Unless someone offers us a set of shiny new 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.
