I suggest having at least one player show up at 8:30am to register their team.
The 1 on 1 tournament, the Turbo Bocce playoffs, and the Italian Fest make up the Syracuse bocce triple crown. Win any of these three tournaments and everlasting glory is yours!
Choose who will be your team captain ahead of time, each team needs a captain and only the captain can question the officials calls.
First place team wins $200. Second place team wins $160. Third place team wins $100.
More info available at the Italian Fest website HERE  but keep in mind that two facts on their website are wrong (1) they want you to mail them a check, which is crazy, just give them cash the morning of the tournament (2) they say you can’t bring your own beer … you can, and I WILL.  Cheers!

Look at all those happy money winners. And that’s just from last year’s tournament!
