Recent Juniors Events: Illinois and Florida

Here's a couple bits of Juniors news from the weekend of October 26th…

Downers Grove Illinois: Downers Grove North Petanque Meet

By Chicago Petanque Club · Updated on Sunday
It was a sunny, cool, day of sizzling pointing and blazing shooting in Downers Grove. The plentiful, tasty pastries and hot chocolate made it the perfect petanque day with the Downers Grove North French club. Fun time for all. Thanks to the CPC for making this event possible!

Fernandina Beach, Florida: Amelia Island Boules Club

In an effort to introduce and promote petanque to all ages of the population, as well as maintain our favorable relationship with the City and Community, the Amelia Island Boules Club reaches out to the County’s High Schools. Saturday, we held the second annual County-wide High School Tournament, with teams representing the schools competing against each other. A picture is worth a thousand words—you only need to look at the picture below to see that a great time was had by all!

As a result of the club's efforts, the Amelia Island Boules Club now boasst 130 members, born in every decade from the 1920’s to 2000, and has been the largest club in the U.S. for the past two years. Keep up the good work!
