The 2018 Bocce Ball Marathon was a success. We congratulate the winners: Team Double Trouble, Team Bengals, Team American Made and Team Nice and Kozy. They all played well with fierce competition and rose to accept the first-place winnings in each league.
SunBird is looking forward to an even bigger and better competition for next year. The 2019 Bocce Ball Marathon will begin January 13 and run through March 17. Two-person teams will compete for cash prizes and bragging rights as SunBird’s finest rollers. Everyone is encouraged to participate. Flyers and registration forms are available in the Activities kiosk in the SunBird clubhouse. Registration must be completed by January 4.
Mark your calendars for the kickoff event for the 2019 Marathon. It will be held on Sunday, January 12, at 10:00 a.m. in the SunBird Ballroom. At that meeting, you will have a chance to meet the folks on your league and exchange play times. We will also have a short discussion of the rules and any changes to the marathon for 2019.
The bocce ball courts located at the intersection of Championship Drive and Kerby Farms Road are available for your use daily from 8:00 a.m. to 6:00 p.m. Equipment is located in the bench seat at the south side. The rules of the game are posted on the bulletin board or are easily found on the Internet if you want to study up. If you are new to the game, the Bocce Ball Club plays every Thursday morning at 9:00 a.m. to practice, teach and encourage new participants.
