Bob Buckles Memorial Bocce Tournament

It was a day of good play, good competition and fun for everyone who participated or just came to watch. The tournament was held in honor of a dear friend we lost this winter - Bob Buckles. Bob was not only a player but one of his last projects was the construction of our 2 new Bocce scoreboards. It was such a treat to have Bob's wife Helen and daughter Debbie to hand out the hardware. Special thanks to the Commish Eric and refs Dave and Joe.

Not Bocce related but we have a constant reminder of Bob
with this beautiful burner cover he made us.

It was shaping up to be a beautiful day despite the cool start.

The field - 16 of the best.
