California Commemorative Cup

On Sunday March 13 the California Commemorative Cup will take place in San Rafael. Formerly know as the Northern California Commemorative Cup, the board of LPM decided that it was in more of a neighborly fashion to change the name so as to welcome any and all FPUSA registered pétanque players in the state of California. If you think you may be interested in playing, please contact LPM for ideas pertaining to lodging. As the format will be select doubles, start looking for your partner now. We hope to see you there.
