Lamorinda Pétanque - 2013 Season Opener **UPDATED**


Hello Petanquers

We need to clear up some confusion about the Format for the Sunday 17 March Tournament at Lamorinda.
The Bay Area and Beyond Calendar says it is going to be a Select Doubles and The Announcement says Melee Doubles.

Bit of a snafu there, but easily resolved; 
If you come with a partner you will play with that partner. 
If you come alone, team up on the day with someone who comes alone. 

And, most importantly: We will have a porta-potty on site.

We are looking forward to seeing you at our Season Opener.
