Our last major competition day for the year was held later November and it was the very popular IPCQ Cup. The top 12 players from Newmarket Bocce Club arrived early to compete against our best 12 players. After a full day of competition it is good to report that our Redlands team took out first prize. Newmarket players also did well taking out the second and third prizes.
We are truly grateful to our generous sponsors for their ongoing support which enables us to hold this competition day and we sincerely thank Col & Val Meers and Paul & Elizabeth Jeffs for making this possible.
Although the official competition calendar for 2018 is completed, our bocce members will continue to come and play bocce socially every week.
Last Sunday, 2 December, our Annual Christmas Party and Presentation Lunch was held in the Palms Auditorium of the Redlands Sporting Club. This was a first for us to hold this event at lunch time and it proved to be an outstanding success. Our sponsors, members and guests were served a delicious four course lunch with drinks and enjoyed the afternoon with the music and singing of Fortunato.
