We got this message from Jim Schwobel...
For pétanque players planning to play this Sunday, Oct. 20, 2019, you should know that the Farmers' Market is hosting a "Fermentation Festival" that will run from 10:00am until 4:00pm.
Allowing time for the vendors to vacate the Browning Hangar and the parking lot to be available, most likely the earliest time we'll play will be 5:00pm, maybe later...so you can adjust your arrival time accordingly.
Vice-President, Heart of Texas Petanque Club
An alternative for those wanting to play earlier than 5:00 would be to start at 2-3PM at Paggi Square.

Report from Ed Priest:
Sept 16, 2019: Construction is continuing at the French Legation. Status of the various projects include:
-- Continued reworking of the back gate entrance by the parking lot. It is really taking shape now.
-- On the Legation itself windows and door have been removed at the back and the old concrete and wooden ramp have been removed. The rotten timbers have been removed from the front porch.
-- The new steps at the front and side of the building are shaping up with the forms for the foundation footing.
-- Work is continuing on the entrance to the carriage house. Interior work has also started which includes the restroom.
-- The parking lot is defiantly showing the most head way.
-- The old brick walkways are being removed making way for the new ADA approved ones.
-- They are trying to save what grass they can during this hot summer with portable sprinklers since the irrigation system is totally dismantled.
It is good to see how the work is progressing at this time.
The people renovating the French Legation are asking for our input. By using the survey below we can have an influence on the future activities there!
