Winter Bocce in PA
Bruce Lanke of Perrysville, PA sends "...some pictures of our Annual Winter Bocce Tournament. We had ten hearty souls brave the 16 degree temperature and play several games on January 25, 2009."
"This is our 5th year, it is more a social event than actual tournament...any excuse to play Bocce!"
"We built a fire and dined on homemade chili. Playing in the snow is quite a different experience!"
Here's the gang that played in the January 31, 2010 tourney, their 6th annual.
Good shot, great photo!
"We had twenty brave souls endure 27 degree temps on a glorious sunny day to play in the snow the game we love!"
Bruce reminds us that this is "more a social event than actual tournament...any excuse to play Bocce! We built a fire and dined on homemade chili made by our chef Tim Kelly."
The traditional bocce colors in the snow evoke a festive, holiday atmosphere.
"Our courts are located at our church in Perrysville, PA. This past year we added lights and a pavilion."
