HOT NEWS! THE FIRST SINGLES TOURNAMENT IN AUSTIN TX.

Hello everyone and welcome.

The first Singles Tournament in Austin just finished.  Twenty two players showed up.  It was a fabulous day.  We started at 8:30 am and finished by 3:30 pm.   Even so, the games were not timed and played up to 13 points.  That was great, because  we had a full day of petanque and still went home early.  The winner is Clark Orwick from the famous Ded Bob Show.  I taught the game to my friend Clark about 15 years ago.  He kept on playing casually at every Renaissance Faire where he performs.  But today he showed his talent and  left no chance to any of us.  He won against some of the top players in Texas.  The final was against Rick Armstrong.  Clark started strong with a 4/0 4/2 4/4 Rick took over with a 7/4 Clark came back  7/7 and started 8/7 10/7 Rick battled to 10/10 and 11/10 but finished with 13/11  It was so unreal to see Clark win, he didn’t even bring his own balls he had to borrow a set from Jim.  Congratulations to you my friend.  Thierry Amisse played against Ashu for third place and Thierry won.  Congratulations to everyone who participated at the first Singles Tournament and thank you to the players who come from out of town.   I think the Singles  will fast become a very popular tournament.   Looking forward to the next one.    A+ Love Arsene.
