HOT NEWS! ZAYTOUNA LOUNGE,

Hello everyone and welcome

Thierry Amisse and Hasu Patel won Zaytouna Lounge against Amine Najah and Arsene Dupin.  Congratulations to the winning team!  After a full day of playing the day before at the HOT Tournament, most of the players came back early to battle at Zaytouna.   This time we had the blessing of the wind, a real cold wind, but that didn’t stop anyone to play and enjoy another fabulous tournament at the Lounge.   I am sure that everyone had to transcend pain because if you were  in any final the day before and finished in the final at Zaytouna you had to play fourteen games in two days, wow!  Amine Najah the owner of Zaytouna did the tournament in the Swiss system fashion, groups of four teams without consolante.  The semi final and the final games were on fire, the quality and experience of the players were a sweet delight to witness.  It was for sure an Extravaganza Weekend of Petanque.  Thank you to all the teams who came from far away and a special thank you to Jo Sanchez who came from the furthest, he came all the way from France at age 78 to be among all of us and enjoy a game that now America has embraced.    Thank you to all and we see next year.
