Hello everyone and welcome!

Today is the day of our annual International HOT Petanque Tournament. Teams started to arrive all week long.  The first one to come was Jo from France 76 years old.  He decided to come to America to participate at the tournament. WHOW  that was a surprise including all of his family saying What you going to the US to play Petanque?  The last time he took a plane was maybe 12 years ago.  He plays with the Saint Genevieve des Bois Club near Paris I met him on several occasions there and I though that guy is good  What a pleasure to host him. When he was younger he was Algerian and France champion in different categories.  I tell you he can still play the game even in jet lag.  Also other out of town teams started to show up on Thursday and all day  Friday and on Saturday since they were having an event at the Hangar we could not practice there most of the teams went to Zaytouna Lounge and played for hours. We even have Ed Porto the president of FPUSA and  the famous duo Pascal Corchia and Juan Garcia representing the US at the World Championship this year in Marseille. Welcome to Texas everyone we are so happy to have you here.
