We have modified our technical straegy a bit, and as a result of this we can now offer prefix-domains, such as british.petanque.org, for interested parties.
If you are interested in this please contact us (click on the name above this text). We are off on our hollidays now, but in about 3 weeks we will be able to set things up.
To start off with this will be a free service, but we will have to charge money for it next year, when we have to pay our DNS-fees again. The cost will be minimal, about 5 - 10 Euros a year.
So it your are interested, please contact us. We can point to domains, or url's if you do not have a sever for yourself.(typically a personal homepage) Options also include if you just want to point to this page, or make it look like the page is a domain.
Domains with country-names in them will be reserved for the federation in that country - if you administer one of these please contact us as well.
An example is our new sub-domain postcards.petanque.org, which in reality points to our postcard-collection.

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?
