HOT NEWS! FRIENDSHIP AND PETANQUE.

Hello everyone and welcome,

Friendship and Petanque! Pétanque is a sport that has many features and many people misunderstand his sporting contributions, cultural and social:
It is the only sport where women, men, young, old can be measured and assessed in equal opportunities. It transcends generations and genders and religions. The game knows no social classes,on the piste there are neither CEOs nor worker, but petanque players and friendship. There is no exclusion, and when friends are about to go through major steps in life everyone support them. Rudy Vallee a long time FPUSA member is as we speak having a open heart surgery and yesterday many friends and members of the three clubs in Austin got together to tell Rudy we love him. The cake was exquisite and had a big heart on it. Her a little story for you Rudy and I got to play together in August 2010 at the Mondial de Petanque a Millau. We didn’t know each other he was in LA and I was in TX we just team up by a phone conversation on the advice of Phillipe from Petanque America who though that the two of us could be a good match as a team to go to Millau together and represent The Heart of Texas Petanque Club. It was our first Millau for both of us. Sure enough we had a blast, we laugh so hard and played nonstop for 10 days. We even did good in Millau where the field is compose of thousand of players. Alors Merde Rudy and comeback soon on the piste.  A + Love Arsene
