We have spent a few days here at petanque.org making sure that all the postcards have the correct text, removing doubles and generally cleaning up a bit. The man behind the collection, Jac Verheul , has struck again, and we have now passed 550 cards.
In the process of cleaning up we have modified about 100 of the texts for the postcards, and made sure that all cards are displayed, both in full size and in the preview-version.
When there were doublettes of cards, the votes for both cards have been given to the one that remains in the current collection.
At the time of writing we have more than 37000 votes for the cards. At 50000 we will make a gallery based on the top 20 cards. So get voting!
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?
