Hello everyone and welcome,
Le Mondial a Petanque la Marseillaise is around the corner. Many great teams will come from all around the world to participate hoping to finish in the Le carré d’honneur sur le Vieux Port de Marseille. One player in particular to keep an eye on is Marco Foyot. He does have a chance to enter the hall of fame of Marseille to equal the legendary Albert Pisapia record of seven time winning the Marseillaise. This year he will play with Tyson Molinas and Vigo Dubois, a four-time winner of the Mondial. We have players from Austin going to France to participate. We have Jim Schwobel representing the Heart of Texas Petanque Club, also we have Peter Gray, Mary Stratton, Rudy Vallee and Jacques Richard representing the Nelson Park Petanque club, and many other friends from different club around the Nation like Shannon Hodge and Celia Crittenden etc… Bonne Chance to all!
In the meantime I am playing in Colorado. Many years ago I helped built a couple of courts in the back of a French restaurant in Colorado Springs. Those courts are still available today even so many different owners took over the restaurant. The Pikes Peak Petanque club get to play there all year long. I also have the opportunity to play with the Famous Miles High Petanque Club in Denver and with many talented performers at the Colorado Renaissance Festival. This is not La Marseillaise but certainly a lot of fun.
A+ Love Arsene.
