Blind Draw Bocce Tournament Recap

30 people came out to give the Tipp Hill bocce field a proper test drive.  Going into the first round everybody had their teammate and opponents randomly selected, and after every round from that point on we gathered back together and everybody got a new teammate and a new opponent.  We kept going in that fashion, eliminating people once they amassed two losses, until only four players randomly selected into two teams remained.  Jim Whipple and Andrew Dougherty vs. Scott Mead and Paul Colabufo.

It all started in late May, when the regular season got under way. We had a month to get ourselves in mid-season form as they say, and then the Triple Crown race began in July with the one-on-one tournament.

Do you remember that day? It was 96 … Read More »

What’s On the Line at Festa Italia Tomorrow?

Its been nine years since we were the hated new kids on the block at the Syracuse Italian Fest bocce tournament.  In those days half the festival showed up at the bocce courts and rooted for us to lose . . . and we made sure they went home disappointed not just once, but for seven straight years (for more information on the crazy story of the first Italian Fest tournament click HERE and scroll down to Number 7).

Last year was the first year that Turbo Bocce competed in the Italian Fest bocce tournament and did not win it.  Pretty disappointing considering the year before we managed to take 1st, 2nd, and 3rd place for the first time ever.  Once … Read More »
