Meet La Boule Cadienne de Lafayette.

Micheal Leblanc learned to play from Bernard de Reynies, who grew up playing petanque in the South of France. They  began a monthly picnic for Alliance Francaise de Lafayette and for a social activity, they  tried frisbee, volleyball, and story telling in French. That did not work. But when they  tried petanque, it was magic and has continued to be magic for them  in South Louisiana for the past seven years. Each year they  have an International tournament and this year it be held on Sunday, March 30, 2014.  They generally have players coming from France, Belgium and the US.  This year a team from Namur, Belgium as well as Bernard Champey, an Obut representative, former world champ, and bon vivant will be visiting.  HOT have been participating at the Lafayette Open since 2011 and it is always a pleasure to play with friends from La Boule Cadienne de Lafayette.  Merci
