2007 West Coast Petanque Tournament Results

Since beginning to enjoy going to petanque tournaments I have been somewhat frustrated with not being able to find out what the results of various tournament were. A person simply can't go to every tournament within reasonable driving distance. But that doesn't mean that I don't want to know the outcome! So I am assembling what information I can get out of club secretaries here (if your club is on the west coast and you don't see results to your tournaments here, please send them to me and I'll get them posted here). What I am hoping is that over time this page will help the players that are serious about the tournament play get to know each other better. Who are the top players in a club? The results should reflect that. Who is doing consistently well? Their name will start showing up. Who travels and does well in any setting? You'll see their name showing up miles from home.

And too, like any sport, the top players deserve the recognition for their efforts.

So if you have information that is appropriate to this page please get it to me. bouleman@gmail,com
