First Ever World Cup of Petanque at West Georgia

No English was the rule.

They spoke French. Spanish. German. Anything but English.

Another rule: have fun.

The boules were green, yellow, blue. Some were silver.

First there was a toss of the bouchon. That was the guide. Then they took turns tossing the boules.

The closest to the bouchon scored a point.

Scored seven points? You won!

The first ever World Cup of Pentanque (think bocce with a French accent) came to the lawn outside Foreign Languages and Literatures at the start of homecoming last week.

Some four dozen students and teachers came to play or watch.

Or just practice speaking something other than English.

Next year be ready, Petanque will be back.
