Player Spotlight: Julie Gilbert

On the heels of Allen LaVenture winning Syracuse Volunteer of the Year, we have an article in the Post Standard celebrating Julie Gilbert, and the wonderful work she does feeding the hungry of Syracuse.

I could go on and on about the great work Julie does at the Samaritan Center, but its probably best to hear her own words, which are far more eloquent than mine.

The rest of the article can be found here: http://www.syracuse.com/news/index.ssf/2015/10/syracuse_poverty.html

I’m proud to say we have some great people in our league.  Next time you see Julie make sure to say hi, and thank her for all she does for our community.

Triple Crown Standings

Tournament starts at Noon, at Schiller Park.

 

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 … Read More »
