Weather permitting, the professional will be on hand most of the day to play games against area residents as well as offering at least one open clinic, local club organizer Bo Johns said.
Mr. Foyot’s appearance in Zanesfield is one of a dozen stops on his first-ever tour of the United States. It is being funded by the internationally affiliated Federation Petanque of the U.S.A., which is comprised of roughly 1,800 registered players across the country.
