Balls of Steel at HiveFest, (F/Pr)omo videos, win tickets and new names

in #petanque2 months ago (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.

Mooie Boules: foodhall and indoor boulodrome

This is a foodhall / petanque indoor boulodrome and you can enjoy a variety of foods served by the surrounding stalls, some fancy beverages and try to make the best of your game! Get ready to drop your balls.

Cool, I'll give it a bash. Must be better than my snooker anyway!

Fun! I might be slightly better at Boules than Bowling, so... :-)

I'm sad. I would like to defend the Title in Bowling from Krakow and Bangkok for Team Germany ;) So my Team and Me have to figure out to outplay in such smaller Balls ;) We will give it a Try :P

Boules - why not. Let's see how we keep the title

:D Hahaha! Yes, you will need to teach yourself a new skill this year :P

What is the wait of the ball🤔🤔

It's going to be fun but no way to afford that amount right here in Nigeria. It's the best if I have the chance to go.
I think I have to go to create the ticket for some visibility and for people to know about it.

It is almost here and getting more fun. I really can't wait to join in the fun that this festival brings. wishing everyone the best.

I'm really looking forward to meeting some new people as well as seeing old friends again. It's going to be great. Not long now...

I wouldn't mind being present at a hive festival at some point in my life!

Not long to go see you in a few weeks at #hivefest!

Snooker is one of my favorites online games but seeing this indoor here though my first time to encounter this type of game raises much interest for the game. #Hivefest no dull moment enjoy yourself hive all the way.

It's gonna be a great Time! <3

It looks like a easy game, but I guess it takes skill to throw the ball with the rigth speed anda the rigth direction. 😅
