july 12th tournament

It was a perfect day for a casual pétanque tournament. The weather was extremely favorable. Not too hot, yet not too cold. At registration time, we were a bit worried as to having enough players to hold the tournament, but sure enough, we attained our desired goal of players. Among them being two new members. LPM would like to welcome Monte, and Mina to the club. Both seemed to be very excited about their entry into the club.
Monte played with Christine, and Mina played with JP.
All appeared to have a nice time, and we hope to see them often on the courts.


Don't foget the next tournament on August 10 --
