boules, bier und brats - VOMPC

Hello Dearest Petanque Enthusiasts,

Don’t miss this the Valley of the Moon Pétanque Club Oktoberfest Celebration and tournament this Saturday, October 22. It’s a casual tournament with a focus on fun – perfect for beginners and intermediates as well as the more experienced. Newcomers are absolutely welcome and I encourage you to bring friends who might enjoy our sport.

Behind the grill will be the inimitable* Hans Kurz, famous for his sauerkraut as well as his authentic lederhosen and accent! There are a few spots left for the lunch – sign up right away on the website (vompc.org) or on the hotline (707-343-9465). Lunch includes homemade sauerkraut, mashed potatoes, bratwurst, smoked pork chops and complimentary beer. Wow!

Hope to see you there!

Tournament Director, Peter Mathis
