Special Edition – 2002 North American Bocce Championship
This edition is devoted entirely to the North American Bocce Championship held this past weekend in Highwood, IL. It was my first experience with international style play and the text and photos that follow document my reaction. The rules are much more stringent than we back-yard bocce players are used to, but the skill level and excitement was undeniable.
This is the game that promoters hope to see in the 2008 Olympics in Beijing (the Chinese LOVE bocce and have the option of selecting a new sport when the games are held in their country). So, I’ve devoted this issue to broadening my own horizons and the horizons of those readers who have yet to experience the international game.
