Due to nasty weather creating unplayable field conditions, the June 20th Midwest Petanque Tournament has been CANCELED. Please visit the Chicago Petanque Club website in the near future for rescheduling.

Yes, I was vocal (I'm Hal's wife!) Yes, it was raining yesterday, but this morning it was not... as announced by the forecast for many days... I could perhaps understand that some world champions would not like playing petanque on field that was a bit wet, but I remembered that last year, on Sunday, it was pouring like hell and the organizers waited an hour before deciding to cancel the last round!! And this year, it's just a little humid on the ground (almost already entirely dry because of the hot weather), the sky is blue and... no petanque!!

Furthermore, We all know that these last two years people from other states attended the the organizers should know that some of those people had to leave the day before the tournament and stay at a hotel to be on time on Saturday morning... So the least I was expecting from considerate organizers was that one of them would show up at 9:00 at the field to be sure that everybody was informed of the cancellation... A little consideration is the first principle in the organisation of a petanque tournament...or the next time, just say that it is only for people who live in Chicago and there will be no problem...
