Dear NYPC members and friends,

We are very pleased and very proud to welcome for the second year in a row World Champion Dylan Rocher for our Second Edition of the Challenge Robert Pierre on August 24 & 25 2013 !!!

Since we saw Dylan last, he became Senior World Champion in Marseille last October, playing flawless games during the entire tournament, and receiving the praises not only from the international press, but also from all his peers. Quoting his partner and also World Champion, Henry Lacroix, “Dylan is the best shooter in world at this time”. Before the World Championship, and just after his return from New York, Dylan won the Masters of Pétanque and many more tournaments, including a National in Dijon where not only he won the triplette with his father and J.M. Puccinelli, but he also won the single during the same weekend! Go check Dylan’s new website and watch numerous videos of great games of petanque: http://www.famille-rocher.com
