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.

After all the bocce balls had been set up and all the contestants signed in – while the brackets were being randomly selected and drawn up – there was a moment of quiet anticipation. A jersey that read ‘St. Jude Hero’ fluttered in the wind alongside a Turbo Bocce flag. The jersey was appropriately worded.

In a very real sense everybody that attended Turbo Bocce’s first one on one tournament to determine the best bocce player in Syracuse was a hero, because every participant made a contribution to help the sick children at St. Jude’s Hospital – but having said that, everybody in attendance … Read More »

Week 7 Recap

After three weeks of rain, the sun returned to Turbo Bocce. I’ve never had a problem playing bocce in the rain, and in fact have had a lot of really fun rain games, but enough was definitely enough. Seeing the blue skies, the sun, and the bocce field packed with people made me realize just how much I was missing a typical summer day. I found myself really soaking in the sun and the summer, and having a blast.

Fun in the sun!
