Once again this was the Fourth Annual HOT Open Tournament in Austin Texas but this was the first time that the venue was at the Mueller Hangar a perfect place to have a Petanque Tournament, an Open Hangar providing cover from the Elements but letting the air to circulate to keep cool. The weather was on the hot side with 90 degrees but very comfortable in the shade.
There was a total of 32 Teams ready for a full day of Competition.
