It is quite the beautiful day here. The sun is shining, there is a gentle breeze, and of course the flowers are starting to bloom. The tranquility is perfect. It is a time to go outside and play a friendly game of bocce. Yessir, the bocce ball tournament has started again. Whether it is the first time somebody has heard of the game, or they are an avid player, there is a spot in the tournament for them. It is a casual tournament, but one where we all shoot for having fun and making new friends. Even if you aren’t the champion, there is still ice cream for you as you connect with new friends when it is all over.
A cool wind blew over the court. It was a Halloween like many others. Most people were waiting to go to evening festivities. But there was one thing that made this day special. The annual basketball tournament.
The numbers for this year’s tournament were smaller than normal, but talent was not in short supply. This year two student teams faced off for the right to play the full-timers. It was a hard fought battle, but in the end only one team moved on. The victors advanced to play against the full timers. It was a best two out of three. Though there were times when it looked like either team could take the title, in the end the students triumphed 2-0. With this, the students claimed the title, and the right to a pizza party. Congratulations to the winning team, and see you all next year!
