What is BOCCIE you ask?
Boccie (sometimes anglicized as bocci or bocce) is a lawn balling sport belonging to the boules sport family, closely related to bowls and pétanque with a common ancestry from ancient games played in the Roman Empire. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Bocce
Anyway, it is now a fun lightly competitive sport that you can play in parks with friends while consuming staggering amounts of grilled bbq and various alcoholic imbibes.
And no, to attend this event... YOU DO NOT HAVE TO PLAY!!!
Best of all... this event will be supporting the BIG BROTHERS BIG SISTERS ORGANIZATION.
