I have gotten the "green light" to demonstrate Petanque at the 2008 Lehigh Valley SportsFest event. It will be held July 10 - 13, 2008.

I want to extend a personal invitation to you to join us. I am seeking a firm commitment from at least a dozen or more Petanque players to lend their time to help promote the sport in the USA. You do not have to be from the USA to join us, but I ask for adults (aged 18 and older). Plan your vacation around us - we're just over an hour drive from New York City, the New Jersey Shore, and Philadelphia - about a half hour from the Pocono mountains. Just plan to give us one day of your time.

I will need firm commitments by November 20, 2007 for this to happen. Lehigh Valley Sports Fest 2007 had over 150,000 attendees. This is the opportunity we've been waiting for to heighten the awareness of the sport to the general public.

I anxiously await your replies. If you plan to participate, please e-mail me.
If you cannot participate with us, check out their website at: perhaps this will inspire similar events in your local area.

Thank you.
