  • We'll be at the Bocce Ball Courts! They are next to the playground, near the skateboard area....
  • Ciao a tutti...

    Keith and I have been discussing Bocce Ball, maybe having a team for a season of DC Bocce Ball.  To start, I thought it might be a nice fall outing to organize an afternoon of Bocce Ball.  We'll gather at Garfield Park on Capitol Hill because they have two actual Bocce Ball courts at the Park!  Below the park address and a picture of it.

    If you decide to join us, please plan to bring something to share - either a snack or something to drink.  If you want to know more about the park, this website will help:

    If you own a Bocce Ball set and are willing to share it for the afternoon, please let me know!! Alternatively, if you'd like to be an Event Host for the Bocce Ball afternoon, I welcome your assistance.

    Here are a few more points of information:

    1.  It is a fairly large park and includes (aside from the Bocce Ball courts) bbbbbba dog park section, tennis courts, a playground, picnic tables and a skateboard park.

    2.  Use of the courts & park are on a first-come first-serve basis, so I'll ask some people to arrive early and help me "reserve" the courts.

    4.  Parking can usually be found in the surrounding neighborhood or it is about a 10 minute walk from the Capitol South Metro,

    3. There is no bathroom in the park itself, the closest bathroom is at the American Legion Post which in an emergency can be used (I've done it before and they were very nice.)

    Thanks everyone!  I hope you can join us.  Tanti auguri, Nancy

    How long will you be there? Anybody up for a drink/dinner afterwards?

      We'll be there for about 2 hours...not sure personally about going out afterwards as I'll have lots of stuff to deal with, but you can always see if others there want to go someplace else...

      If it gets rained out -- which is sounding like a real possibility -- I would be up for drinks or dinner tomm night instead. Last year we had an event at a great Naples pizzeria on Woodmont St in Bethesda (Pizzaria Da Marco). It was a joint trivial pursuit night with nonprofit Emergency USA) if anyone remembers it. Anyway, great place if anyone is interested...rain or clear. Margaret
