Dear LPM Members,
Sadly, we must inform you of the passing of Jean de Baere. While he has not been active in our club in the recent years, he was for so many years, a dedicated volunteer serving on the Board and working for the sport and the club he loved. He was a gentle, talented, charming man. If you wish to share condolences with the family, you will find the information in the notice below

There seems to be a bit of confusion regarding the tournament of select triples scheduled for this Sunday. There is NO tournament this weekend. The Inter-club tournament, to have been hosted by the Petaluma Valley Club, has been postponed and the select mixed triples has been moved to AUGUST 9. There is a flyer with more information which is forthcoming.
LPM apologises for any inconvenience this may have caused.
Below please find the most up to date calendar:
