Make Up Week Recap

The Turbo Bocce season is 10 (three games sets) long, but being the generous chaps we are, we give you 12 weeks to play 10 times, thus there are two “make up weeks” built into the season. The first always falls on the week of 4th of July, and the second falls on the last week of the regular season, which will be August 9th this year.

Week 5 Recap

We are built wrong. We have noses that run and feet that smell. Yet somehow we cope, and sometimes we even thrive. In this recap I will be focusing on those times in which people thrive, and congratulating them for it.

If you are not traveling this 4th of July weekend, perhaps you want to kick your holiday weekend off right with a blind-draw, all you can drink, sand bocce tournament. We are going to be playing in the sand at Sharkey’s at … Read More »
