HOT NEWS! SAN ANTONIO WINS THE HEART OF TEXAS PETANQUE TOURNAMENT!

Hello everyone and welcome.

Nicolas Bienvenu and Michel Costa won The Heart of Texas Petanque Tournament again the Dallas Petanque club with Patrick Blanco and Richard Fernandez.  We got blessed with rain most of the morning but all managed to stay dry because of the Historic Muller Hangar. It was historic too that the San Antonio club finally won the HOT trophy!   They have been coming down for many  years to compete  but never got first place,  but  here it is today it was their day! Congratulations to both of you as well to everyone who finished in the first three spots of the main brackets and in the consolante A and consolante B, and congratulations to everyone who participated. Its was a tremendous day, we experimented a new format with two consolante so people got to play a lot, looks like it was successful and everyone had a good time.  We had for the first time of  the history of the club, a teams of kids who were eleven and nine years old Owen and Zayd, the way they played  had to teach a lot to the adult, because they were all playing so relax , in such a  calmly fashion and end up by finished third place in the main Tournament. Wow! that was just unreal! Bravo!  the next generation is well alive.

Thank you to all the sponsors who every year support HOT and a major thank you to all HOT members and friends who helped to all of the many tasks to be able to put up such a major event, again merci.   And the adventure is not over, today we have  the second  half of the  Weekend Petanque Extravaganza at the Zaytouna Lounge!   A+ Love Arsene
