#TBT: Throw Back Tourney

Saturday October 17th at 11am we will be playing a tournament at the place where it all started – Upper Onondaga Park, Strathmore – the site of Turbo Bocce’s first ever championship.

Triple Crown Standings


The three triple crown tournaments are the Best Bocce Player In Syracuse tournament (1 on 1). the Turbo Bocce Championship (2 on 2), and the Italian Fest (4 on 4).

To win the triple crown you have to win all three events.  Spoiler alert, nobody did that this year, but we can still determine the overall standings for all three events.

The way we do it is, you receive three points for winning a tournament, two points for finishing in second place, and one point for finishing in third.

Best Bocce Player In Syracuse:

Greg Griffo – 3 points
Bryan Mullane – 2 points
Phil Martino – 1 point

Italian Fest Results

If you missed the Italian Fest, I bet you want to know how we did  . . . or maybe you don’t.

After seven straight years of taking first place (and usually most of the other money earning spots as well).  Turbo Bocce came up empty this year.

We earned a big slice of "failure cake"this year.

We earned a big slice of “failure cake”this year.

We fielded 5 teams out of a 25 team field.  The highest finish we had was, I believe, 5th place.  The beauty of bocce is, anyone has a chance to win at any time.  Sometimes get the bounces, and sometimes you just don’t.  This year it was our turn … Read More »
