Play pentanque; help food bank: The Edmonds Petanque Club (pronounced pay-tonk) plans its second Food Bank Tournament at 10 a.m. Sunday at the Civic Center Playfield, 230 Sixth Ave. N., in downtown Edmonds. Registration, which opens at 9 a.m., is $20 per person for this doubles tournament. Three-quarters of the proceeds will go to the Edmonds Food Bank.
