Turbo Bocce’s Creation (Part 2)

In anticipation of the tournament we have coming up Saturday October 17th, at the site of Turbo Bocce’s first ever championship, I want to chronicle the early days of Turbo Bocce, and the people who invented it.

This part will detail the exact moment that lead to the creation of Turbo Bocce. I’m going to title it:

Week 1 Recap

Turbo Bocce’s season opener had a little bit of everything . . . Becks, Shocktop, Landshark, Ultra, LaBatt, and oh yea, a little bit of bocce too!
