Agree with you that it would be most desirable that people in Esuri get a hang for this fun game and more join in.
I saw a post by a certain "Jean Michel" asking for information as to where and when we play, but the post has disappeared. Anybody knows who this person is so we get word to him ?
Hi Ramon

Sorry, I don't understand - you replied to Bills post stating that the group decided to have a 'season' starting from April. So (logically) you did know the dates. Which is why I posted back. As OP I am tracking this thread.

The boules club is ( I want to repeat) just a fun friendly and social thing. A few of us started it to have some fun. No 'decrees', rules, agenda's etc. Its certainly not exclusive, anyone can join us without permission - just turn up on the day.... And, of course, anyone can organise a game with friends - or through the forum at any time, separately, through this thread if they want. If I am around I would love to join in, if the invite is an open one - like all the games we have played through this thread.

Its great that you will play on Wednesday and I hope you get some people turning up...

Have fun

Jon

PS If you want to contact any current forum member - who is still registered - just send him a PM. PM's activate after 3 posts...

Sorry Jon, but it is message#27, where it is first mentioned that boules resume first week April at 4:00.
I just don´t see the problem, those who want to play just go and play, those who want to wait for April do so.

Free game in a free land by free people.

jajaja... sounds so ridiculous does it not (corny!)? Never thought i´d say something like that LOL.

I see some sets are 2 boules and some 3. From memory I think the normal game is with 2, am I right?

The rules for boules are beyond me, so had to look it up. It says, for triples, two balls are used. For singles/doubles, then three balls, unless someone knows otherwise?

Also on the previous page I mention that we play a 'short game' which isn't the standard Boules rules, but is faster and as much fun.

All people and 'games preferences' welcome when the Boules restart in April

As there seem to be two schools of boules/petanque (the Continuous Casuals vs the Start in Aprils) why not start a league?

One school, with a couple of classes (currently) that all can attend free-of-charge.... and a fun sports day every week

More classes available, e.g Egg-in-spoon boules, 3-legged boules, sack-race boules, shin-kicking boules, Morris-dancing boules etc. etc. These versions welcome to join us too - teachers/demonstrators needed
