ITS BOCCE POTLUCK TIME #2 !

  • Sep 14, 2014 · 11:00 AM
  • This location is shown only to members

Hey folks - let's play a little Bocce again. Join us for a nice easy going Sunday afternoon event at the park. Bocce is a game for all ages, very easy to learn and is lots of fun. Its one of the few games that you can play that's really low stress and fun to learn! Perfect for M and Ms.

We've reserved 3 courts for 3 hours, so there will be plenty of opportunity to play. Bring food to share and your ice chest with drink preference.

Wine and beer allowed but hard liquor is not at this venue.

I will supply plastic cups,paper plates,eating utensils and napkins.

 For those who want to do their own BBQ bring your own grilling tools,knives etc. We will have charcoal and a Weber available for you to use. Charcoal fluid not allowed so we will have a chimney type starter to get the coals goin!

Click  link for basic rules- http://marinbocce.org/basic-bocce-rules/

We'll be sharing the cost - $10 per person. The first 44 who pay will be attending, the rest moved to the Waiting List. 

NOTE - There will be no refunds once you RSVP. If you have paid and are not going to show up please change your rsvp to No. Your spot will then be taken by another on the waitlist.

Thanks !

    I left a little white sweater with a floral design on it at this meetup. I called the Bocce park the next day and they did not have it. Did anyone find my sweater? Thanks!

    Its finally time to play!
    Dont forget to wear soft soled shoes ...tennis shoes..sandals..boat shoes all ok. No heels guys :)

    We are going to be eating and drinking quite a bit but Marin Bocce requests that we do not eat or drink while standing on the court itself.

    Other than that....LETS ROLL !!!!

    • judy

      Do you have full teams or are you still looking for a replacement for those who had to drop out at the last minute

      September 14, 2014

    • Liz G.

      I will actually be on my way to a performance at civic center so will be dressed for a show and will only be able to stop by to say hello for a bit. I likely won't play as a result so you can count my RSVP as a yes I'll come by but I won't likely play on a team.

    Hey had to bail ..two spots just opened up.. I paid so good luck..

  • Teresa

    So... wanted 2 play w/ y'all again, (my second time!), but was just given a HOT SF Giants vs Dodgers ticket, to see Petit pitch against Kershaw, the "machine"! Well, the Giants r only 1 game away from tying the Dodgers, 4 the top spot in the National League! Last night's 9-0 WIN against the Dodgers, (I was @ AT&T), was a HUGE BOOST to San Francisco, SO Awesome! Hope the Giants will SWEEP L.A., & that someone can ENJOY playing Bocce Ball---using my spot! Cheers! :-)

    September 13, 2014

    • Nick P.

      Cannot turn those tics down....not against The friggin Dodgers! Go Giants!!!

      1 · September 13, 2014

    • Teresa

      I'll also, miss… sharing some MAJOR FUN… with y'all tomorrow! Please WEAR ORANGE, 4 our GIANTS!!! I'll be taking photos & likely, wearing an Orange Boa, in case u spot me! I'll b sitting above the Giants' Dugout, bet. third & home bases, about 17-20 rows from the Field! The pitching should be Awesome! (Hoping u guys will Score some FUN points, & that Nick will plan more Bocce time soon!)

      September 13, 2014

  • Nick P.

    Thanks for updating your rsvps to No so others can join in. Would be even better if the changes could be made a little sooner because several who would have liked to have played made other plans when they saw the event was full...

    Are we playing tournament rules or alternating ?

    1 · September 11, 2014

    • Nick P.

      Basically we will have 2 teams of 4 players each. Two players from each team will be at opposite ends of the court.Each player gets to throw 2 balls.We are shortening the matches from 12 to 8 points to keep the games moving along at a faster pace. This will allow everyone plenty of time to play....

      September 11, 2014

    • Chuck D

      It's a basic rule. Take turns throwing or throw until you are closest. As stated in the basic rules.

    Hey gang its almost time to get rolling!
    Please review the link on bocce play so you will have some idea of how the game is played.
    Each team will consist of 4 players and we will play each game until one team scores 8 points.

    I could really use one person on each court to help out with getting everyone started. Many Mostly Mariners have never played and it would help me out if you could play as well as advise on the games as they go along !
