What's the SCORE?

The SCORE is FPUSA's Newsletter. This issue pertains to any and all matters regarding our wonderful women players. Up until recently, women have been somewhat out of the "circle" so to speak, but as the title of Christine's article says, "The times, they are a changin." It looks like all the folks at THE SCORE have achieved a perfect 13-0 with their efforts on this latest issue.

Also in the news of women boulistes is the new forum for women who play pétanque. For further information, please contact Christine Cragg at LeCochonnetRose@gmail.com
