UPDATE : Because of  the hurricane Irene that will touch New York this weekend we have to cancel this tourney. The tournament will take place the following Saturday September 3rd, 2011.

Thank you for your understanding and please stay safe! 

 

Hello NYPC members and friends,

Timing problems forced us to change this Sponsor Day tournament (which will now take place on October 16th).

Instead, we will have a Select Doubles Tournament with medals and $$ prizes.

We will also run a precision shooting contest the whole day. New format: 1 boule in the middle of the circle to shoot from 6,7,8 and 9 meters, and again from 6 and 7. Total 6 boules for a maximum of 33 points (if you shoot 6 carreaux it will be 30 points plus a bonus of 3 points because you did not miss a boule. Boule shot and out of the circle 3 points. Nothing else.)

$5 will buy you 6 boules to shoot and you can buy as many times as you want. We will select the top four shooters for a 6 boules semi final and final before the Doubles’ final. $100 to the winner.

The weather forecast states we should be fine under the big trees.

What:  Select Doubles.
Entry Fee:  $10 per player
Prizes: Money $200 Minimum and Medals !
