HOT NEWS! THE CENTRAL REGION IN AMELIA ISLAND.

Hello everyone and welcome.

The Central Region was well represented in Amelia Island.   Texas and Colorado send several teams and got some great results.   Austin, San Antonio, Denver were represented and did great!    Some of the teams went there for the first time and some were returning.   Some had the chance to play against World Champions some against local players.  That is the beauty and the uniqueness of the game of Petanque, like no other sport you get to play against superstars at random.   Speaking about that we had a team from Austin Thierry and Jacques who the chance to play against World Champion Claudy Weibel from Belgium and won Just unreal!    It will not happen in any other sports and in the US only at the Petanque America Open at Amelia Island.. Congratulation to you Philippe and to every organizers and participants.

A+ Love Arsene.

Petanque the only sport that will give you the opportunity to play with stars.

HOT NEWS! MORE FROM AMELIA ISLAND.

Hello everyone and welcome.

Here more picks from a weekend of fun in FL.

Marco and Bernard won after a two hour game against two of the top players from France Damien Hureau/ Patrick Neuville.  That final  shook up America for ever, Marco and Bernard were  down 11/5 and won 13/11  Marco had to shoot  le Cochonnet three times out of bounce to finish.  Unreal!

A lot of the Austin team finished great for their first time in Amelia. Results later.

A+ love Arsene.

HOT NEWS! LIVE FROM AMELIA ISLAND!

Hello everyone and welcome.

End of the first day, yesterday was the elimination rounds many won, many lost,  but the main discussion among all players is
” hey did you make the cut for tomorrow? how many games did you win?” Some of the team of TX won 5 out of 5 some from Colorado 3 out of 5 but very happy about it because the field in Amelia is very tuff. But the main thing is everyone had a good time for the first day and learned a lot about themselves. Today it is sudden death! you loose you are out.   Good luck to all players.

Results for the first day.

Hasu & Terry W-5, L-0
Linda & Jeffery W – 4, L-1
Cecilia & Gerald W-3, L-2
Ed & Rudy W-3, L-2
Jacque & Thierry W-3, L-2

A+ Love Arsene
