This year's tournament director will be Christophe Chambers.
Many of you already know him. A graphic designer by trade, former president and current member of La Boule New Yorkaise, he has been playing petanque seriously for more than 15 years, serving as the club's sports director, an FPUSA umpire, and also a member of the FPUSA sports committee.
An avid player and competitor, Christophe has played the game from coast to coast, traveling to regional and national tournaments. He has also been involved in organizing and directing tournaments for many years including 'Brooklyn Bastille Day' , and 'Coupe des Ameriques' tournaments. He is equally active in promoting the game to beginners, working with LBNY to create clinics for beginners in Bryant Park and being at the cradle of a new club in Austin TX - now known as the vibrant "HOT" Heart of Texas Petanque Club.
