26 Feb 2022. We met for an indoor petanque tournament at Boules Bites Bar (behind the Pieter Vreedeplein) where we were safely tucked away from the start of Carnaval festivities. We still had the carnaval spirit with several members coming dressed for the occasion.

Petanque is a summertime classic outdoor game, also known as jeu de boules. It’s a simple game where you get three chances to throw a weighted ball as big as your palm as close to the “but” (a small-ish plastic ball) as possible — or at least closer than your opponents! 

TIC members battled against each other in an intense series of ball throwing. The games moved along at a quick pace with groups of 4 or 5 taking turns at throwing their balls with sporty elegance and accuracy. At some point, competition devolved into chatting and drinking, but to be sure, a good time was had by all!
