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 9 Recap

Now that Turbo Bocce is in its tenth year, our records are getting extremely hard to break. Through the first eight weeks of the season a few all time records were pressed, but none of them fell. That all changed in week 9.

Fun in the sun!

Fun in the sun!

As good as the weather was, the bocce was even better. There were a lot of … Read More »

Week 6 Recap

Yes, we played bocce during a tornado. About a hundred people didn’t show (and who can blame them?) but that still leaves quite a large number of people who were willing to brave the most extreme weather conditions known to Central New York (except in the winter) for their sport. No pictures exist because, quite frankly, it never stopped raining. But that’s okay because pictures would have been inadequate. Tornado bocce was so epic that it simply must be narrated by that deep voice guy who narrates every movie preview.

The craziest part of the day was when everybodies cell phone went off at the same time with this message.
