Hello everyone and welcome.

FPUSA is sponsoring a U.S. tour for Legendary Petanque player Marco Foyot during the month of October. The Heart of Texas Petanque Club has been chosen as one of the stops for this event!.  Marco has a petanque school in France, and he will be conducting some clinics on Saturday Oct. 26th at the Mueller Browning Hangar (Airport Blvd and Aldrich St 4550 Mueller Blvd, Austin, TX, 78723)
This is a unique opportunity to receive some personal instruction from one of the all time greatest players in petanque. Clinics are approx. 1.5 hours and will be given at 10 AM, 12 PM  & 2 PM.
The cost of the clinic is $20 per person. Space will be limited to 12 persons per clinic. Basic petanque knowledge is required to participate in the clinics. In addition to the clinics, HOT will also be holding beginner’s lessons and open play as well on that day at the Hangar.
On Sunday Oct. 27th, HOT Petanque will host a tournament with Marco at the French Legation at 9 AM (802 San Marcos Street, Austin, TX 78702 (512) 472-8180) . It will be a  Carousel triplette  format with players changing partners each round.
Players will have a chance to play with or against Marco during the 5 rounds. Medals will be awarded to the winners. We will have a pot luck lunch at around 1 PM.  The cost of the tournament
is $5 per player. Space will be limited to 24 players
We will also have a get together and demonstration with Marco at Zaytouna Lounge on Friday 25 october,  as well as private lessons.  But please check the Heart of Texas blog:  https://heartoftexas.wordpress.com/    for details as they become available.
To sign up for a clinic or a place in the tournament, please email  Christophe Chambers at     xtof13@gmail.com
Space for these events is limited.  I expect them to fill up completely, so first come first served.
Please include in your email:   1) which clinic time you would like.   2) a contact ph#   3) if you want a place in the tournament on Sun. Please again look on the attached  flyer for the  timing of each clinic.

Payment will be due at the time of the events. Cash or check  no credit cards. Once the events are full, we will start a waiting list. As we are not requiring payment in advance, please only sign up if you are sure you will be attending.

We are looking forward having you spending time with Marco in Austin. Don’t miss it.     A+ LOVE Arsene
