Monday morning was a beautiful sunny, clear day perfect for playing pétanque on the quad. Phi Sigma Iota hosted a game of pétanque, or boules, November 15, 2010. Dr. Susan Myers and Elsa Richardeau, our French Assistant, had fun helping students learn the basic rules of the game. With a set of eight boules, everyone had a chance to participate and the rounds became more challenging as students developed a feel for the weight of the boules and the techniques of the game. We had some close calls for gaining points, and the winners won by only a couple. Great game, guys!
