The latest fad to hit the Maryland area, thanks to the MOC, is bocce! By popular demand, we’re organizing a bracket-style bocce tournament where MOC members will compete to see who really has the better bocce skills. Prizes will be awarded to the overall winner. We will also grill out while the tournament is going on, serving the basics: hot dogs, hamburgers, and a few sides. Drinks will also be provided (no alcohol).BRBR Brackets will be determined based on the number of registered attendees, and drawn on a random basis. Several mini-tournaments will go on throughout the day to determine who goes on to the “Championship” bracket, where this single-elimination event determines the overall winner.BRBR New to the club or new to the world of bocce? Don't worry, just come on out, we'll show you the ropes and you are guaranteed to have a good time.BRBR Prize(s) are TBA once we determine the number of people registered. Check back here for updates.
