Week 10 Recap

Week 10 was packed with excitement from start to finish.

It started with a 50/50 raffle to raise money for our DJ, Jimmy Del Fuoco, who has generously donated his time and agreed to play music for us for free all year. Half the money raised went to Jimmy, and the other half went to our winner Boutros Abu from the Bushwackers. Thanks to everybody who participated and congrats Boutros.

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.

Fun in the sun!
