HOT NEWS! The Heart of Texas Petanque had the opportunity to demonstrate and teach the game of Petanque at St Edwards University in Austin,TX. The event was during their International Education Week.
It was a glorious day in a beautiful setting right in the middle of the campus. Most people don’t know but the City of Austin has 13 Sister Cities and 3 Friendship Cities. Angers,France (the birth place of Damien Hureau) it is Austin’s newest Sister City, the capital of France’s Maine-et-Loire district, a lovely and historic region and France’s fourth-largest industrial producer. St Edwards University is in part responsible for the merging of the two Cities. HOT had established ties with the Petanque Clubs of the region of Angers and we were welcomed by the Mayor of the City. Every year they even schedule a special tournament when we come to town. Unreal! Thank you to all the volunteers who came and donated their time to teach and support the game Petanque in Austin and a special thank you to Bill Clabby and Cynthia Darling. Merci
