Make Up Week Recap

The Turbo Bocce season is 30 games long. That’s 10 weeks of three game sets. We also give you two “make up weeks” to get your games in. The first make up week always falls on 4th of July week, and the second is the last week of the season, which will fall on August 10th this year. Any games you have not played by August 10th will be forfeits (but everybody makes the playoffs anyway).

Blind draw tournaments are the future, expect more of them, and expect more tournaments in the sand too.

When Sharkey’s mentioned to me that 4th of July weekend was going to be a slow one, and offered to put up some prizes and a $30 all-you-can-drink special if we set up … Read More »

Week 5 Recap

WARNING: 5 Weeks of Turbo Bocce will make you unspeakably awesome. Side affects include being able to: win a game of connect 4 in only three moves, cut through a hot knife with butter, count to infinity – twice, and start a fire by rubbing two ice cubes together. Houston will start calling you when they have a problem. You won’t be able to walk on water, but you will be able to swim through land.

A Dave Matthews related blip in the schedule made for a rather low turn out, but the 50 or so that did show up (even a few smarties who used bocce as a way to tailgete for the concert) were … Read More »
