HOT NEWS! TRIPLETTE TOURNAMENT.

Hello everyone and welcome,

We just had our end of the year tournament at the historic Mueller Browning Hangar. It was a Triplette. Teams came as far as Dallas and San Antonio. The field was strong as well as the weather we started with many layers on but as the day progressed the sun made it fantastic. The finals went on for two hours. The team composed of Amine Najah, Arsene Dupin, and Jim Schwobel started strong but only one point at the time to make it to 9to1 but the team composed of Felipe Cardona, Hasu Patel, and Thierry Amisse came back to 8to 9 easily, but we finished 13 to 9. Thank you to everyone who participated and supported the event. Looking forward to our 10 years anniversary in 2018. A+ Arsene

HOT NEWS! THE FPUSA NATIONAL TOURNAMENT IN FRESNO CALIFORNIA.

 

Hello everyone and welcome,

HOT NEWS! The FPUSA National at the Fresno Petanque Club was a tremendous success. Two days of bliss. All due to the fact that the organization was fantastic, the welcome was fit for a king and queens and the food was succulent.
Players came from all over America. It was a superb weather in California. Great to see old friends and make new friends. The field was very strong. Women and men’s Doubles on Saturday and Doubles Mix on Sunday. Everyone had a chance but the dominance came from the local players of the Fresno Club. Their victory is not only due to the fact that they sleep on those courts but because they played very well.  HOT was represented by Linda Schryver, Marion Bermondy, Jim Schwobel and Arsene Dupin.   Congratulations  to everyone.
