The Xmas melee is going to be an extra EXTRAVAGANZA this year (as it should be).

SANTA is rejuvenated after having last year off and WILL be making a comeback. (this being the year of the underdog)

By Santa’s decree Xmas hats are banned this year so join in the fun by you girls wearing xmas tights or leggings and or t–shirt or blouse or ear rings and you guys wearing xmas t-shirts, shirts, ties, pants or even socks BUT NO HATS.

Gary my new ‘sergeant at arms’ will be at the door to confiscate any inappropriate attire.

Even Trevor has promised to join in the fun this time round, so no excuses come along and make it an extra good night.

Cheers Le Santa

...was a PPC member for 9 years and did wonderful service as club secretary.

Her husband Sid, commissioned a rose in her memory.
He has generously given our club a prime specimen to plant amongst the club roses.

You want trees? - They have trees!

Saint-Paul de Vence, France
   One of the most famous pétanque spots in France, and where Allan Sanderson played pétanque in 2008, is the medieval town of St Paul de Vence - 30 kms west of Nice.
   It was the hang-out of painters such as Chagall and Matisse, and actors Fernandel, Yves Montand and Lino Ventura.
   Many a film shooting got delayed because the actor buddies had to finish their games first...   a matter of priorities.
Thanks to Pétanque America Blog - Saint-Paul de Vence
A café terrace, huge plane trees, and an area of dirt & gravel... the perfect combination.
