The US Open Petanque (Pay-tonk) Tournament is just winding up and by all accounts it has been a great success. Three days of sportsmanship, fun and international relations. This event grows each year and they had 172 teams entered this year from all over the world. 26 of the American states were represented and international teams came from as far away as New Zealand and Mongolia.
Petanque is a little like Bocci and a little like horseshoes. It takes a minute to learn and a lifetime to master. They sure were having fun at the tournament today with live music and food trucks available to all between games.
The next big event on Amelia Island? Thanksgiving, coming up fast!
