Valley Of The Moon Petanque - Oktoberfest

Dear VOMPC Members and Friends,
I hope this email finds most of you in continued safety and perhaps by now, in your own homes with your families. 
Due to the ongoing fires and the very unhealthy air quality, the Board has decided to postpone this Sunday's Oktoberfest tournament. We are hoping to reschedule it to next month, a "Novemberfest," of sorts. The Board will be meeting this Thursday and a rescheduled date will be decided and announced to you by the end of this week.
Looking forward to seeing all of you soon on the pétanque courts in our beautiful hometown.
Barbara Hall
