Hello everyone and welcome.

On Thursday 24, October, Austin will witness an historic event in  the world of Petanque.  Marco Foyot is coming to town!  Yehaaaaa.

The FPUSA (our National Petanque Federation) 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 Foyot has been the French national champion seven times. As a member of France’s triplette team in World Petanque Championship competition, he has won gold, silver and bronze medals six different times (gold in Italy in 1992, silver in Belgium in 1995, and bronze in Italy in 1988, in France in 1994, in Germany in 1996 and in Portugal in 2000). In addition, he has won La Marseillaise in triplette in 1974/1975/1976 with Authieu and Melis, 1983/1984 with Kokoyan and Luchesi and 2002 with Milei and Usai.  As well as numerous competitions in France and across Europe.
Here the schedule of his visit.
