“We have built it, and now you may come!”
The bocce ball courts located at the intersection of Championship Drive and Kerby Farms Road are now available for your use. Many thanks go to the HOA Board of Directors and the Project Planning Committee, with extra kudos going to Margaret McCathern for spearheading the project. We need to thank Layne Varney and the SunBird maintenance crew under the direction of John Anderson for making the dream come true.
The courts are available for your use daily from 8:00 a.m.-6:00 p.m. Equipment is located in the bench seat at the south corner. Use the combination 8524 t0 access the storage box. 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 Committee members can help you find players and get you started.
The courts may be reserved for a SunBird organization or regular play times by contacting Dianne Reed at 612-616-9431. Check the court bulletin board to see what times have already been reserved. Even with a reserved time you may have interested spectators and new friends joining you to play.
Coming in January will be some friendly competitions, tournaments and special events to help everyone enjoy the new bocce ball recreation area. Watch for announcements in the December SunBird News.
