HoT Petanque’s First Tournament

The gamesI am proud to say that the first tournament organized by Heart of Texas was won by the club itself and the beautiful cup that Thierry Amisse made will remain as a trophy in Austin, TX until the next tournament.

The GOLD: winner representatives of the club were Amine Najah and Arsene Dupin. There’s so much to say about today and how organically the tournament came together, so the first thing is to say Thank You to all of you who came and participated and everyone’s support whether you were there or not. Also, one of the major contributors to a magnificent success today was the weather. It didn’t rain on us during the entire tournament in the midst of every weatherman predicting rain today. I think because of the goodness of those smiling faces coming together to one of the greatest games on this planet, the heavens opened up the sun for us.
