Introduction: Terrain De Petanque? Ou?


My step-dad has been asked to remake the frame for this, decided to take pictures for the world wide web. It's a score board for some sort of french game. It is a painted pine wood. Translation would be awesome. KTHANKSBYE

Boulodrome "du Bois" (VERY common french name for a place, like queen street in Britain)
Bowling green (this particular type of bowling "pétanque" is a game played with largish metal ball and one small wooden one, traditionnal game espacially in provence, the south east of france)
Evens games un-evens
points


As you have noticed it is a score board for this french game called "Boules" i.e. Balls. played usually by old people, more for entertainement and socialyzing than actual sport.
