Many years ago there was no way of getting your pictures online unless you knew someone with a homepage. Or you mailed them to petanque.org, and we'd put it on the web for you.
But nowadays nobody does this thing anymore, there are thousands of ways to get your images online, and our pictures-section is about as dry as the sahara. So we have had to make some changes
To make sure you get your petanque-pictures out in the open, from now on all you have to do it upload it to Flickr, and add "petanque" as a keyword. Then it will automatically be shown here at petanque.org as well.
We plan to add some petanque-specific functionallity , such as the ability to vote for the pictures, and perhaps associate them with a club. If you have ideas about what you would liek to see, please tell us, or drop a line in the forum.

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?
