National Triples - April 8 & 9

South Florida Petanque Club will be hosting the National Triples Tournament for FPUSA members next weekend. If you're in the area, go and have a look!

For details and directions:
SFPC website

The folks at SFPC always eat well, thanks to an array of members who are chefs, active or retired.
Among them Jean Vergnes, at one time chef and co-owner of Le Cirque, New York's landmark restaurant. Incidentally he participated in the creation of "pasta primavera". Here's the recipe.
Jean has been happily married - for 48 years - to Pauline, one of the 'live wires' at the club, always ready for a joke.

We will have pictures of the tournament next week.
