La Chandeleur at Nelson Ranch – 2/13/2022

A message from our friends at the Nelson Ranch Pétanque Club:

Greetings Members—

The Nelson Ranch Petanque Club would like you (and family) to join us for our version of the French celebration, La Chandeleur. On Sunday, February 13 at 2 PM, at the Nelson Ranch pavilion (905 Nelson Ranch Road), we will be serving French crepes, both sweet and savory as a celebration of longer and warmer days to come. Sounds like a good reason for us to celebrate. We ask that all members bring to share either a sweet or savory filling for the crepes. This annual event is a joint effort of the NRPC, the Legation Boules Club of Austin, and the Alliance Française chapter in Austin.

We expect that pickup Petanque games will start between 11 AM and noon, and then break for crepes at 2 PM. Pickup games can continue after that break. Hopefully we will have a very nice day for La Chandeleur. Stay tuned though. If the weather forecast of that weekend doesn’t look promising, we will probably postpone until the following Sunday, February 20. In past years, we have had some really nice weather for the fete, and hopefully we will this year.

In appreciation of all the support you have given us, we would like you to come have crepes and some wine with us.
If you have any questions, please feel free to contact me.

Thanks and take care—
Gary Ragan
President NRPC
