    I'll be there to take a few photos and say Bongiorno to all the Bocce supporters.

    Amici, mi dispiace ma non posso compartire questo sabato. Volevo portare al mio figlio Maurizio a giocare insieme con me. Sonno in Messico per il lavoro. Spero che avete un buon tempo. Forza Italia!!!

    They have this in my hometown Rome, NY....so this should be just as entertaining down here! We will stop by for a few...

    Kellie, it's a really easy game to play! Think lawn bowling crossed with curling if that makes any sense. We usually have a club tournament every April at Marion Diehl Rec Center and some of us have started to get together at McAlpine Creek Walkway near Mama Ricottas to practice, where they have 2 lighted courts.

    That sounds great. Unfortunately I can't make it... Nor do I know how to play!;) someone should start up a team to learn it, practice regular, etc.!

We just grab a coffee and speak French. Some people have been coming every week for months... it creates a kind of warmth to the group.
