Back in 2009, we did a corporate outing for Pearson Education.
We always get to the venue early to groom the courts. Boston based companies can get a permit to use the courts for their corporate event, then hire me and my bocce posse to make sure the day goes off without a hitch.
The three courts are on Commercial St. overlooking the Charles River. You can view the Bunker Hill Monument and “Old Ironsides” from the venue. The place is ideal for passers-by to stop and watch and learn about the game. The stone embankments just invite you to sit down and watch, then maybe play a little.
Of course, it all starts with a competent, good looking (and well dressed) bocce posse. These guys not only play well and referee well, they have a knack for making sure everyone in the group has a great time.
We randomly assigned players to teams (see our Color Coded system by clicking on the photo above), then gave a short explanation of the game, the rules, and how the afternoon would play out.
You’ll need a bracket board. This outing was for textbook publishing giant, Pearson Education. We placed 6 players on each of 12 teams (72 participants). Each team was in a pool with 2 other teams (4 pools of 3 = 12 teams). After pool play, the top team in each pool moved on to the “Medal Round.”
