OCTOBER CLASSIC

Final Bocce Tournament Results

The third and final tournament for 2015 was held Saturday, October 10 at the courts in Manchester. The games were rescheduled from the previous Saturday, due to rain. Fifteen of the orginal twenty-one teams were able to make the rescheduled date.

The team El Dente, a consistent entry in many recent tournaments, finally rose to the top undefeated. Marios, champion team in past tournaments, took second place, with two of their four players playing Bocce for the first time. Another long-time team, the Tigers from Taneytown, have played in every tournament in the past several years. This time they took third place with a make-up of husband and wife, daughter and grandson.

The tournaments have been held since 2009 with all the proceeds donated to Charlotte's Quest. The earning from the 2015 and 2016 tournaments will be dedicated to supporting the new astrology site at the center. A special building was put in place to house the 15-inch telescope with a concrete pad for viewing. The three tournaments in 2015 produced approximately $2800.
