2017 saw another fun, successful weekend for the Cleveland Challenge Cup of Bocce! For a full tournament recap, visit the link below:
The Pat O’Brien Chevrolet Cleveland Challenge Cup of Bocce is going to 104 teams for 2017!
This change will come with some added guidelines:
1) ALL teams will need to arrive, ready to play their scheduled game :45 minutes prior to scheduled start time. This has been our biggest issue the past couple of years and has prevented us from expanding. If your court is called and you are NOT compliant with this rule, there will be consequences.
2) The following start times: Friday (6:00pm); Saturday (8:00am); and Sunday (9:15am), if your team is not here and checked in 30 minutes prior to scheduled time, AND ready to play, we will start the :15 minute clock and a forfeit will occur.
3) We will be sending periodic updates via social media regarding how far ahead or behind we are. We recommend you follow us on Twitter, Facebook, or other types of social media. All that detailed information will be available at the check-in desk and your team gift bag will also have information on staying connected.
This is a HUGE step for us and it is only successful if everyone cooperates. Keeping the games flowing is our job, showing up to play on time is yours….
Thanks and we hope everyone has a safe trip to our venue…See you at the Tournament!
2017 CCCoB Tournament Committee
The Club once again hosted the Area 12 / Special Olympics Bocce Tournament on Saturday, May 7th. Over 70 contestants from the northeast Ohio area participated in the games, as buses from Lorain Murray Ridge, Lake Deepwood, and Cleveland Hts./University Hts. facilities brought the players to the Club around 8:30 a.m. on a cold, rainy day. Fortunately, our covered bocce courts and pavilion allowed the games to proceed.
Over 20 Club volunteers helped to keep the games run smoothly, serving as both coaches and referees, while several members helped to prepare and serve food to the players and their families and supporters. Special thanks to club member Harvey Contenza for helping to organize the event.
Also, congratulations to Melissa Coad, this year’s winner of the Pat Bristo/Henry Liberatore Sportsmanship Award, named after the two club members who were instrumental in bringing this event to the Wickliffe Italian-American Club.
