FPUSA has a new look

Greetings boulistes,

We have a new website with a new look! www.usapetanque.org
It is the same web address, and our new webmaster, Dan Danielson, president of the Chicago club and board member has generously offered his time and considerable skills to help us continue what Jan Claire began years ago when he designed a site for the FPUSA.

With a different perspective our website has a different look, though, for now, the same information. As before, if you have comments or items you'd like to see on the site, please contact Frank, our always capable secretary who somehow manages to keep mountains of work reduced to mere molehills. Frank will coordinate with Dan to keep our website functioning with the latest information.

Thank you Jan, and thank you Dan. Two great friends of the FPUSA.

Joe Martin
