1st Annual Bocce Banquet – Success!

Bocce Club of Las Vegas – 1st Annual Bocce Banquet

Approximately 60 bocce members and family attended the event on Tuesday June 19th at J.W. Zunino Landscape Architecture.

Everyone brought amazing potluck sides dishes that complimented the Baked Ziti, Sicilian deep dish pizza, soda, Garlic Knots (yummy), and buffalo Chicken Wings provided by the club.  It was a delicious spread that was enjoyed by all.

James welcomed everyone and gave a special thank you to:

Jack Zunino for letting us have the event at his business

Sons of Italy

Hello,

Unfortunately, the Son’s of Italy bocce team had to drop out of the league this season. We hope to see them back in the Fall.

Since we are unable to get another team so late in the season the executive board had to make the following decision:

The below teams are currently scheduled to play the “Sons of Italy” on the following days. Do Not show up that night for bocce (unless you want to practice). Your team will automatically receive 3 wins.

April 24 – Bocce Knights

May 1 – Condogs

May 8 – Yinz Guys

May 15 – Boccenova

May 22 – Ma Shooz

May 29 – Boccelism

June 5 – Minifutto

The teams that already played the “Sons of Italy” will also receive 3 wins. They are:

DeBoccery

The Big LaBocce

Pizons

Holy Rollers

Granny’s Kids

Bocce Ringers

The weekly standings dated April 24 were adjusted to reflect the past wins. The standings will be adjusted for all future games on a week-by-week basis.

Please email me if you have any questions.

Ciao, Roxann

Rules Update

Dear Bocce Members,
As you know we voted on Rules 2 & 3 on April 3, 2012.  The votes have been tallied and here are the results.

Rule 2.   3 Players: If a team temporarily has only 3 players available to play, one team member will be designated as a “walker” which means that player will be allowed to act as the 4th player.  The “Walker” will play 1 ball from each end.   All players will alternate being walker for 3 games.

  • The walker should throw 2 balls from each end – 43 voted Yes
  • The walker should throw 1 ball from each end – 8 voted Yes

 Rule 2 has been revised to read as follows:

Rule 2.  3 Players: If a team temporarily has only 3 players available to play, one team member will be designated as a “walker” which means that player will  be allowed to act as the 4th player.  The “Walker” will play 2 balls from each end.   All players will alternate being walker for 3 games.

******************************************************************************************

Rule 3.    2 Players: If a team temporarily has 2 players available to play, rather than forfeiting the game, the 2 players are assigned to opposite ends of the court and will play a total of 2 balls each.

  • The team should forfeit all 3 games – 10 voted Yes
  • Each player at opposite ends of the court should throw 2 balls – 25 voted Yes
  • Each player at opposite ends of the court should throw 3 balls – 16 voted Yes

Rule 3 will remain the same.  No changes will be made.
