in #petanquelast month (edited)

After having had a chat to get acquainted and re-meet old friends on Thursday night during opening drinks, and Friday daytime means business. Conference day at the Eye Film museum.

After that we sail through the canals of Amsterdam to the evening venue for some serious fun and dining:

Playing petanque near Amsterdam Canals in style of Rembrandt van Rijn

Petanque night "Balls of Steel" at MooieBoules.

After snooker in Lisbon, bowling in Krakow and Bangkok, this year we go for the small steel balls: Petanque or "Jeu de Boules": Game of balls.

In petanque the objective is to score points by having boules closer to the target than the opponent after all boules have been thrown. This is achieved by throwing or rolling boules closer to the small target ball, officially called a jack or by hitting the opponents' boules away from the target, while standing inside a circle with both feet on the ground.

The game is normally and best played on hard dirt or gravel. It can be played in public areas in parks or in dedicated facilities called boulodromes. And therefore we go and play it in the Amsterdam "boulodrome" Mooie Boules.
