Book database reaches 290

By Mr.Bordsenius at 2001-01-05

Our petanque-book database has reached the incredible number of more than 290 entries. We have made a new version to celebrate this event.

The new and impoved version has a lot of new features, maily that the searches are now much better. Combination searches on language and game types are possible, and virtually all others too.
In a few days we will publish the first rules ever written for the game of petanque to mark this special event. Mr.Verheul has transcribed a hand-written book in french from the 19th century, and it will all be available on-line here.

Currently we only have the french text, so if you feel like giving a hand translating it into other languages please contact us. would like to congratulate Jac Verheul on this magnificent book-database, he is the man behind it all!
