Hello everyone and welcome,
The world of petanque just lost a great man. RIP my friend Bernard Chasseport. He was the organizer of the biggest petanque indoor tournament in Europe, Les Trois Jours de Poitiers. I first met Bernard in Lafayette Louisiana where we found ourselves playing against each other in the final of the Lafayette tournament. We became instant friends! I had no idea that he was the organizer of Poitiers he invited the Heart of Texas Club to go there and participate. We were welcomed like dignitaries. I could see in his eyes that the love for the game was burning constantly. I realized how much effort he had to do to organize such an incredible event. All the top champions will never miss it. When I first walk under the dome it was surreal! Imagine what it is the hear the metal balls clicking of 512 Triplettes. Wow! It was like a symphony! Bernard on the top of the tower looking over all the courts was like a maestro. He was conducting the whole thing. He will be everywhere running the show from the gorgeous buffet to giving the medals to the champions. You will be miss my friend! All my blessings to your family. I Love you! A+ Love Arsene.
