2016 Season Starts Sunday, May 15, 2016 at 2:00 pm

Hello:
Start practicing and get ready for our 2016 season.
Looking forward to seeing our regulars and new players.
We will try to bring extra equipment for those who don't
have boules yet.  And by the way, let's hope Paris wins the
2024 Olympic Games.  Pétanque might be an introductory
sport.

Encore - Sunday play will continue to the end of September

Since we are having such nice weather and our regulars want to better their scores before the end of the season.  Play will be extended.
Bon Chance.
Congratulation to Jeanne on her double win last week and on Peggy for her win.  Everyone is playing so well.
We also had a nice contingent from the French Conversational Meetup:  Cat, Steve, Ankit, Julia, and Alexandra.  Thanks to Julia for organizing the event, and congratulations to Alexandra, a first time player, on her first win.
