Today the Southern California Bocce Association released its 2017 Bocce Tournament Schedule. Mike Pennino with the San Pedro Bocce Club sent it to me this afternoon. Good luck to all West Coast Bocce Players and those who will be traveling to California this year to compete among some of the finest players in the USA. Note that included in this list is the Las Vegas Bocce Open, run by Guy and Frank DeSantis, which is coming up soon on 3/24/17 – 3/26/17. Frank is in SoCal and Guy is in NYC. The event is limited to 40 teams and the deadline to enter is 2/14/17. Be good to your special someone this Valentine’s Day and you may get a “bocce pass” to head to Sin City, or just take them along. There are lots of other activities at the South Point Hotel and Casino than just the bocce event. – Joe Bocce
