Some Non-Petanque suggestions

Depending on where you live in this vast country of ours, summer is either upon you or it’s on its way shortly. One thing for sure is that it’s never here soon enough. Here in Portland summer is greatly anticipated as it’s the one time of year we don’t get any rain. From (roughly) the beginning of July through (roughly) the end of August we’re guaranteed rain free days void of humidity with plenty of sunshine and daylight past 9.

We encourage you to take a look at our wonderful city (and state) as a destination for more than boules. Come a few days early, stay a few days late, or both! Did you know that July is Oregon Craft Beer Month? We’re only an hour and half from the ocean, have a fine food culture, produce world class wines (the Willamette Valley Wine Country is only an hour away) and we have no sales tax. Yep, if it says $19.95 on the price tag you pay $19.95. No annoying sales tax, period.

Please click on the links below for information about Oregon and Portland and give some thought to coming and visiting our city, playing boules at the club and enjoying the Pacific Northwest in the summer.
