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.
