Join in the fun at the 11th Annual Honky Tonk Pétanque Tournament!
The eleventh annual Honky Tonk Petanque tournament honoring Marius Ciais will be on Saturday September 30th and Sunday October 1st at the Northern Inn in Republic.
Pétanque is a fun and simple game similar to bocce ball or lawn bowling, and the “honky tonk” adds some fun!
Teams of three can play, and all equipment will be furnished unless players prefer to use their own petanque sets. Adults can play with kids and no special skills are needed other than the ability to roll steel balls toward the target ball.
The event offers a total of $1,000 in cash and prizes, including $500 for first place!
Registration is $50 per team if registered by September 15th ($60 after). Preregistration at the Northern Inn is encouraged.
Weekend events will include an instructional demonstration on Saturday morning for first timers or those just looking to brush up on the rules. Saturday’s games will end with potluck-style BBQ with live music! The final rounds of the tournament will be played Sunday morning.
