HOT NEWS! HAPPY INTERNATIONAL WOMEN’S DAY! WOMEN IN PETANQUE! MARCH 8TH 2014.

Hello everyone and welcome.

In support of International Women’s Day, I am going to celebrate the women who play Petanque!

 International Women’s Day (IWD), originally called International Working Women’s Day  is marked on March 8 every year. In different regions the focus of the celebrations ranges from general celebration of respect, appreciation and love towards women to a celebration for women’s economic, political, and social achievements. Started as a Socialist political event, the holiday blended in the culture of many countries, primarily Eastern Europe, Russia, and the former Soviet bloc . In some regions, the day lost its political flavor, and became simply an occasion for men to express their love for women in a way somewhat similar to a mixture of Mother’s Day and Valentine’s Day. In other regions, however, the political and human rights theme designated by the United Nations runs strong, and political and social awareness of the struggles of women worldwide are brought out and examined in a hopeful manner.  This is a day which some people celebrate by wearing purple ribbons.  Excuse any errors, if I forgot to mentioned you, please contact me. Merci

Don’t forget,  it is around the corner,  The Heart of Texas Petanque Club is proud to present their 6th annual HOT  Tournament. We still have some room left for  your team! Please contact me. The Weekend Extravaganza of Petanque! Saturday,March15 2014 and Sunday March 16 2014.  Two different Tournaments at two different locations, the Mueller Browning Hangar and Zaytouna lounge on the same weekend.
