TPC Handouts

To help promote TPC we have created files from which we print handout brochures and mini-posters. We have placed these files in the public domain, so feel free to download them and modify then for your own club.

Handout
Our handout consists of a single sheet of paper, printed on both sides. Our town— Tucson, Arizona— is a bicultural city, so side 1 of the handout is in English and the flip side is in Spanish. For information about the cover photo, see THIS.

To print our handouts, we print a bunch of copies of side 1 using a computer printer. Then we take the printed pages, turn them over, and feed them through the printer again to print side 2 on the other side of the paper. The two sides are completely independent, however, so you could modify and use side 1 for one side of your handout, and use your own file for the other side or simply leave the second side blank. Note that all of the club-specific information is located on the first (leftmost) fold of side 1.

  • SIDE 2 | pdf | (La Petanca, in Spanish)

When we are playing in the park and we see someone watching and looking interested, we approach them with a smile, say “It’s called pay-TONK”, and give them a handout. Most people are happy to get the handout and to learn a bit about the game. Sometimes we get new players this way, but the primary benefit of the handouts is to build community understanding and good-will. The handout is easy to fold into a brochure that is small enough to fit into a shirt pocket. Left unfolded, handouts can be pinned to bulletin boards or used as letters of introduction.

Here is an image of side 1. (The most recent version may differ slightly.)

Fold the handout so that it looks like a capital “M”. This makes it pop open easily to show both printed sides. Note that the left-to-right layout also works well on an unfolded sheet of paper, so you can leave it unfolded for posting on bulletin boards.

Mini-poster
Our mini-poster is designed to be to be printed on 8.5″x11″ paper and posted on bulletin boards in public places.

It can be printed on white paper, or on brightly-colored paper, or printed in color. It can be posted open, showing both halves, or folded and showing only the left half. It doesn’t offer a lot of information about petanque. Its purpose is to attract the attention of someone who already knows what petanque is, and to tell them that there is petanque in our area.
