Make Up Week Recap

Did a rain storm stop us from playing bocce? No. Did a tornado warning stop us from playing bocce? No. Did the the USA soccer game stop us from playing bocce? Yea, but only for a little while.

It was pretty cool to see fifty or so bocce players all packed into Sharkey’s cheering on the USA. If you missed it, here is a quick recap of all of Tim Howard’s record breaking saves.

Unfortunately the USA lost, but Belgium had a player named Alex Witsel on their team. How are you suppose to beat a guy with a name that cool?

Week 5 Recap

Having missed week 5 to go on my honeymoon, I’m sure there are some details I don’t know about, but there are also some things I do know, like who to thank – its a long list.

Greg Griffo stepped up and set up all the bocce equipment (which is not a small job), and then collected all the money.

Josh Griffo, and Jim Whipple (along with Greg) did the lion’s share of the cleaning up at the end of the day.

Julie Gilbert took pictures despite what I hear was quite a torrential downpour, so I could spice up this article with some pics.

Week 4 Recap

I always love it when guests stop by to visit – mostly because I love showing off the great thing we’ve got going on. In this respect week 4 was a great week, because a ton of cool guests came around to check out what Turbo Bocce is all about.

Our first guest was none other than Turbo Bocce’s unofficial mascot Sanguine French who appeared in full regalia to both entertain and mystify the bocce players he spoke with.

My personal favorite picture is of Sanguine giving current Turbo Bocce champion Robb Jones bocce advice.

Week 3 Recap

Lets turn back the time machine to June 10th.

For the second week in a row everybody got a free shot compliments of Sharkey’s. I definitely think we should enjoy that little perk while it lasts.

In some other extranious news, our field took another step in the right direction as it got sprayed for mosquitos and poison ivy, making for an extremely comfortable, irritant free environment. A big thank you is due Allison Bodine and Mike Aylesworth for their help with the poision ivy removal.

The weather was great and there was lots of bocce played, so lets get to it.
