Petanque America Open 2009

Very pleased to announce we are 'go' for Amelia Island.

I promise it will be a memorable pétanque event for players from all over the country (and beyond), from beginners to champions, and a weekend of unforgettable fun.
Some aspects are yet to be finalized, but here's what I can tell you at this stage:

Date: Sat & Sun 14 & 15 November 2009
Location: Amelia Island, FL
Format: doubles
Prize money: min. $ 5,000 total
Participation: $65 per player

Formal tournament start Saturday 9:00am / Prize awards Sunday 4pm.

It's still early for flights and lodging but please do keep that weekend free. And please spread the word! Overseas participants should start checking flight fares already.

Also, as of June 1st, Petanque America will be located in Fernandina Beach, on Amelia Island. By mid July, we will have the tournament website and registration up and running.
