Laguna Niguel Carnival Bocce Information Booth

The Laguna Niguel Bocce Ball Club information booth was a great success. Members of the club were available for the 3 days and nights of the event to pass out information flyers and answer questions on bocce ball. Everyone who helped out at the information booth had fun meeting new people and explaining the joys of bocce. An enthusiastic invitation to come out and play was given to over a hundred interested people.

Special thanks to all the club members who helped man the booth, Joe and Joan Somo, John and Barbara Cummings, Steve Ward, Orly Barrola, Jamie Drag, Gino Leo, Ciff Kass, Chuck and Carol Perret, and Magic Mike Peters.

Bocce Ball Is Thriving In Laguna Niguel

My wife and I discovered the game of  Bocce while riding our bikes past the courts at Marina Hills Park in Laguna Niguel.  Every time we passed the courts we saw people playing Bocce and having fun. We were searching for another recreational sporting activity where we could meet people and I finally decided to investigate.  I stopped by the court and asked how I could get involved. Pietro the group leader immediately welcomed me and teamed me up with an experienced player to teach need how to play.   I learned how to roll the ball and the rules in 15 minutes. I joined a team and started to play that morning. Everyone was friendly and gave me helpful advice on the strategy and the rules of the game.  

We learned that Bocce is a game for all ages and abilities.  Anyone that can roll a ball can play. Women equally compete with men.  Age, agility and physical strength and the better players.

The weather was perfect with a overcast cool morning and sunshine in the afternoon. The teams played a double elimination round robin with prizes going to the first 6 winning teams. Lunch was catered by Lascari’s Restaurant and Catering. The Lascari’s team did a fine job serving a delicious lunch of pasta, sausage, salad, bread. chocolate brownies and watermelon.
