In 1998, in the town of Santa Anita, Jalisco located in the shadow of the city of Guadalajara, capitol of the state of Jalisco, the late Mr. Miguel Angel Iñiguez Sanchez formed the "Bolos de Santa Anita" pétanque club. At first Don Iñiguez started by teaching his sons, Miguel Angel, Luis Fernando, Hector and Alfonso. Later, cousins and then friends were invited to play and be a part of the club. They have two courts, one of which is covered for use during inclement weather. Presently under the leadership of their President, Mr. Ramon Carrillo Aldrete, the club is 16 members strong. If you think that you may find yourself in Guadalajara and would like to play "pétanca a la méxicana", please contact Alfonso Iñiguez Lazcano
As many of you may also know, two of our now ex-pat members, Douglas and Donna have recently settled, 40 minutes away, in the small town of Ajijic (ah-hee-HEEK) located on the shore of beautiful Lake Chapala.
