For the first time there was a whole team of people there to help me set up and take down (if only they had arrived on time).

Still when the whole field was built with ten bocce courts on top of it, the place looked pretty good.

War Memorial Glamor, and the movie Slap Shot

You probably know by now that I’m super excited about our chance to play bocce in the War Memorial.  I have mentioned all the big names who have performed there (Michael Jackson, Elvis, Rolling Stones, Bruce Springsteen, Metallica, The Who, Led Zeppelin, Jimmy Hendrix, Elton John, Frank Sinatra, Bon Jovi . . . the list goes on and on).  I have mentioned that NBA championship games have been played there (Wilt Chamberlain set a record for most consecutive field goals at the War Memorial that will likely stand forever), I’ve also mentioned the fact that professional boxing titles have changed hands there, but I haven’t mentioned much about the big time movie filmed at the War Memorial.

Silver Knight’s Bocce Tournament Recap

The first ever Silver Knight’s bocce tournament had a lot going on. Just agreeing to play in the event got you free pizza and beer, the chance to win cash prizes, the SU football game projected onto a big movie screen (and they actually won!), and VIP tickets to the Silver Knight’s season opener (a $23 value, not counting the VIP access). Not bad for the $20 a person tournament entrance fee!

On top of all that, we raised $800 for the Syracuse Silver Knight Foundation, which is a wonderful charitable organization that helps underprivileged kids get involved with sports so they wont get involved in something bad or destructive instead.
