Confusion Control

Fellow Pétanque Players,

There seems to be a bit of confusion regarding the tournament of select triples scheduled for this Sunday. There is NO tournament this weekend. The Inter-club tournament, to have been hosted by the Petaluma Valley Club, has been postponed and the select mixed triples has been moved to AUGUST 9. There is a flyer with more information which is forthcoming.
LPM apologises for any inconvenience this may have caused.
