Bocce.  Like Curling on dirt (but even more fun).

Get in the zone.

Bocce.   A little like cornhole but with more class and challenge.

Always Smilin'!

Bocce.  Can be played with a glass of Italian Red in one hand.

About Bocce

Bocce, Patanque/Boules, Lawn Bowling - are variations of  an ancient form of recreation picked up by Roman soldiers somewhere in the Empire.  Bocce is the Italian version, and can be played on grass, dirt, beach, or bocce court.
