HOT NEWS! LIVE FROM AMELIA ISLAND! THE PETANQUE AMERICA OPEN 2014.

Hello everyone and welcome.

I have many friends who are in Florida at this very moment!     Amelia Island for the biggest Petanque open tournament in the Nation The Petanque America Open 2014.   You can start to see a lot of posting on facebook and newspaper etc… of players on the road to get there  or players who  already  made it and are starting to practice on the courts.    This tournament is amazing, they have world champions like Marco Foyot coming from France to participate as well as great players like Damien Hureau and from Belgium  like Claudy Weibel and many more.    This tournament is attracting some of the top champions in the world.    I am going to try with the help of friends sending me pictures and results to keep you posted.   The man behind the tournament is Philippe Boets from Belgium.   His goal was to make Petanque as popular in the Americas as it is in many other countries, one player at the time.  Well Philippe Bravo! you are doing it.  This year it is fantastic we have many teams from Texas representing five different clubs.  Some of them are already practicing and having a warm weather in Fl while it is creasy cold  here in TX.  A+ Love Arsene

Haha we were on the same plane last year with Philippe coming back from France.  Too cool.
