Heart Of Texas (HOT) Petanque Club Dedicates New Courts
What a day! Paggi Square is now officially open for Petanque. Yehhaaa! Over a couple hundred people came for the opening from 10 am to noon on Saturday June first. A big thank you to Mayor Lee Leffingwell who gave a speech about supporting the game of Petanque and the new fabulous courts at Paggi Square. He also gave us the blessing by throwing a few balls. Many kids and families got to learn the game. Thank you to all the HOT teachers and thank you for your patience teaching all of those people. We now have some Olympic courts as the Mayor mentioned it and soon we will put a schedule together to keep on teaching the community. A+ Love Arsene
