"Cut-Throat" (3-player) Scoreboard

Bocce
My friend Ralph Bagarella had a Rico Daniele scoreboard mounted at center court at his Salem, NH home. Since he likes to play a lot of "cut-throat," he had a talented friend and neighbor custom build a replacement scoreboard that slides in to take the place of the original scoreboard. The new scoreboard has dials and arrows for 3 teams - one each for green, red, and white bocce.

Here's a better look at the scoreboard and the family's bulldog bocce mascot, "Mr. Bags".

The original scoreboard which can be interchanged with the "cut-throat" version. If you never played "cut-throat" bocce here is a brief explanation from self proclaimed "Bocce Bum" Ben Musolf of California...
"We play cut-throat all the time. The rotation of play is as follows. First you determine who goes 1st, 2nd, and 3rd. Then it is the same as regular bocce. Whoever is farthest away from the pallino goes. We play up to 30 points where the closest ball gets 3 pts, second gets 2 pts and the third gets 1 point. Therefore, you can score up to 6 points in the round if you have the three closest. We only use three balls each though."
