National Tournaments in Sacramento

Greetings FPUSA Members,
This is a preliminary notice to you all that Le Club Francais de Sacramento will be hosting a National Tournament weekend on Saturday and Sunday, May 17 and 18 at Mather Field Park, just off US Hwy 50 in Rancho Cordova, CA.
On Saturday, May 17th, two tournaments will be held concurrently: National Men's Singles Championship and National Women's Singles Championship.
On Sunday, May 18th, the new National Mixed Triples Championship will be held for the very first time. Your team can be comprised of two men one women or two women and one man.
I hope that as many of you as possible will be able to make the trip and enjoy the weekend with your fellow members of our far-flung petanque community. It should be a great time!
Who knows? Maybe some of our East Coast (and MidWest!) members will join the fun -- including our current Men's and Women's Singles Champions, Jean-Pierre Subrenat of La Boule New Yorkaise and Cynthia Stroud of the Maine Boules Club.
You can expect gracious hospitality and good organization from Le Club Francais de Sacramento, who always do a stellar job. CFS will be providing lodging and event information in the coming weeks, but don't hesitate to reserve these dates on your calendar or to book your flight. Accommodations are very reasonable and convenient in Rancho Cordova, and I am sure that CFS will have a good recommendation for you.
If you have questions or would like more information, please contact either myself, CFS Petanque Director Kevin McGill or NW Counselor Jose Gonzales.
Thank you all and Enjoy Petanque!
