LPM 2010 tête a tête

There proved to be quite an inspiring turnout last Sunday for our tête a tête tournament. 16 gentlemen and 8 ladies formed the competitive ranks. teams from Willits and Sacramento were present as well. Even in spite of some rain and sprinkles that tried to dampen the proceedings , the players were unflappable and play continued. The competition was fierce yet friendly and everyone seemed to enjoy the day.

LPM would like to thank our own Alain Efron and Dan Feaster of the Willits Boules Club for contributing to the slideshow
