Hello everyone and welcome,

Well I could not miss Le Mondial la Marseillaise a Pétanque. So I got up every morning at 3 am and watched it live on Dailymotion. Years and years ago I used to be the main clown in the hit musical ”Barnum” in Paris, the producer and director was Yves Mourousi.  He knew I was playing petanque so he told me that one day La Marseillaise will be the Rolland Garros des Boules. And won’t you know when the president of the Marseillaise Michel Montana did his speech to open the tournament, the first thing he says was quoting Yves Mourousi ” La Marseillaise c’est le rolland garros des boules ” I could not be more excited. I knew this 55th edition was going to be spectacular. One of our members Jim Schwobel flew to Marseille to participate as well as members of The Nelson Ranch club and The Legation Boules club. So Austin and Texas was well represented. Jim teamed up with Kirk and Parker Edwards – father and son from North Carolina Petanque. And they did win one game! It is a big achievement in Marseille because you loose one and you are out. There is thousand of teams so the elimination process is strict. If you loose one game you are out of the tournament. Congratulations to the three of you. We had many other friends in it like Shannon Hodge and Celia Crittenden and of course Marco Foyot who was trying to equal Albert Pisapia record 7 times winning La Marseillaise.  But sadly lost in the semi Finals. I watched every games including the Women and the young generation.  What a delight it was!   Enjoy the photos. A+ Love Arsene.
