1 on 1 Tournament Bracket Draw

24 people signed up for a chance to become The Best Bocce Player in Syracuse and tonight at Apex Entertainment, we drew the brackets.

We are going to be using the group play format this year so every player needed to be randomly selected to one of six groups.

Here is how we did it.  Every player was assigned a number based on the order in which they registered.  These numbers were recorded on a piece of paper, and kept secret.  Then, we filled a bucket with 24 numbered ping pong balls.   Everyone in attendance chose a ping pong ball at random out of a bucket … Read More »

Week 4 Pre-Game

Forecast

It will be about 70 and sunny with 0% chance of rain at the field today … and tomorrow will be 77 with 0% chance of rain so this is a GREAT time to make up games!

Highlights

It didn’t stop raining until after 6 last week, but the 30 of us or so who stayed eneded up playing in pretty ideal weather, sun got out, the field we dry, and a good time was had.  Here are some highlights.

Tips

After you defeat your foe in bocce, make sure to eat their rich tasty heart heart to gain their courage.

Week 3 Pre-Game!

Check out these week 2 highlights!

Forecast 

Its sunny out right now, but we’ve got a 50/50 chance of rain at 5pm.  If you get to the field a 6pm you should miss it completely, and the field will be plenty dry.

If  the weather does something unexpected and you’d rather play tomorrow (when it will be 10 degrees warmer) you have that option!  Just let me know so I can plan for it.

Tips

I expect some great bocce today so here is some advice … don’t give 110% because that’s impossible.  Just give 100% and you’ll be fine … FYI this applies to both bocce and drinking.
