Lamorinda Pétanque

Due to the unfortunate loss of Menlo Park's pétanque club, La Boule Joyeuse, Lamorinda Pétanque who has always had to share a Sunday with another Bay Area club in order to hold their competitions, has stepped into their own Sunday, being the third Sunday of every month.
The long standing tradition has given the first Sunday to San Francisco, the second to Marin, the third now goes to Lamorinda and the fourth has been Sonoma.
Since putting together a tournament consists of many people contributing of their time and efforts, please try and attend as many as you can so as to make each event a winner for every club.

This Sunday, Lamorina will host another Sunday Funday as described in the following flyer.
