HOT NEWS! NEW MEMBER SPOTLIGHT.

Hell everyone and welcome.

Vincent Revel  was born in France  and he is a Parisian. But learned the game when he was 10 years old  when his family move near  Barcelona in Cadaqués.  That  exquisite little town  has a special place in art history, and  was often visited by Salvador Dali. And when the sun is not too high everyone plays petanque. So Vincent got to played every nights under the street lights. But he was hired from the old men to caddy and pick up their boules ( yes you do see that in certain village,that one way of getting the kids interested to play the game ) So he will make a little money  or got an ice cream. But mainly  he got to witness countless games with top players.  So in this case of been a caddy it was a success story, because he kept on playing until about he was 30 years old  but completely stopped for  the next  twenty years.  And it is not until he came to Austin Tx only three weeks ago that he got the passion again by playing in the driveway of his friend Thierry Amisse, who took him to meet the club. Welcome Vincent you are a great addition to the club.       A+ Love ArseneVincent Revel
