Petanque in November
Permalink  
 


For the last year I have been in close contact with the Thai Australia Association of WA seeking cooperation in introducing petanque within their local community. After meeting with the TAAWA President, it is expected that Junior Petanque will be added to the WA Thai festivities in celebrating the Loy Krathong  festival in November.

“As the full moon of the twelfth lunar month (usually in mid-November) lights up the night sky, throughout the Thai kingdom, hundreds of thousands of ornately-decorated krathong or traditional banana leaf floats are set adrift in rivers and waterways in a spell-binding ritual called "Loy Krathong" - the 'festival of lights". This is one of the Kingdom's oldest and best-preserved traditions.”

If there are any West Australian Thai Australians who frequent and read the posts on this forum and are interested, please contact me

These two WA Thai Australians, members of the WA Junior Petanque Team, are seeking sponsorship and/or donations to play pétanque in Thailand against their “siblings” early in 2013. If anyone can assist in the form of sponsorship or donations to help make this possible, please contact me through the Junior Petanque web site at https://sites.google.com/site/juniorpetanque/sponsorship
