HOT NEWS! MARCO FOYOT AND BERNARD MARTIN IN AUSTIN TX! YEHAAA!

Hello end everyone and welcome.

It is such a blessing to have Marco and Bernard in town.   Today the three Austin local clubs were represented at the French Legation Museum and everyone who came had the chance to play a few rounds with or against Marco and Bernard in triplette or doublette style.   For those who love the game of petanque and understand the passion, they realized that it is just amazing to think that a several time World Champion would come to Texas to play with us and teach clinics,  but to come twice to Austin in less than a year, it is a miracle!   So to see him in action up close up and personal and to learn from such a master,  the only thing to do is to relish the moment!   And that’s what everyone did at the French Legation today and at the Hangar where players took also private lessons with Marco translated by his friend Bernard.   After the lessons, hearing from the comments of each players, you could tell they learned a lot and their game will be changed forever.   When you get the chance to watch such a master in action every little things is significant!    Like just watching him walking back and forth  from the circle to patch a hole or the way of holding his cleaning rag or the way of  looking at the lay of the ground, the way of standing while the other team plays, the way of thinking on every point, the way of the movement of his shooting arm , the way he releases the ball and the way he talks about strategy.   What a joy!   And this was just the first day of their arrival and they were still  jet lagged.   They are here  for two more days and then on to Amelia Island Tournament.   Merci to both of you for visiting Austin again.  More to come soon!

A+ Love Arsene
