We have started a small projects to clean up our petanque-website directory hotboule. And as a part of this effort we have a very fair demand for all sites that we link: Link to us.
There are a lot of sites out there. Some good, some bad, and some just plain weird ones. But they share one thing in common: A passion for petanque. And to keep this passion flowing for the users it is important that any visitor to your site can find out more about the game, and visit other petanque-sites.
We have always linked everyone, but it has come to our attention that not everyone else does this. And as action speaks louder than words we have decided to remove all links to sites that does not link us. It will take a few weeks tom implement this as a spider needs to be made to automatically check all links we have registered.
So - if you have a petanque-site listed in hotboule or a blog in our blog-section add a link to petanque.org now to ensure that your site stays in hotboule.

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?
