When we started our postcard-collection here at petanque.org we were very pleased to have more than 100 cards online. But that was a long time ago, now we have passed the magic number: 1000!
Jac Verheul is the man behind our postcard-collection. He has been collection postcards related to petanque for more years than most of you have been playing petanque.
Every holliday he goes off to France to dive into stores selling old books and postcards, and he has generously shared his entire collection of postcards with the world here at petanque.org.
Not only do we thank Jac Verheul for this magnificent collection, but we also extend our heartily thanks to Mrs. Verheul. What she does when Jac in inside all the bookstores we have no idea, but without her generosity the collection would we a lot smaller.
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!

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?
