Bocce Balls '14
Every year the Italian Youth Association of Edmonton aka A.G.I.E. puts on a friendly Bocce Tournament for local Radio, Print, and TV stations in the Edmonton Area. Why do they hold this competition? Quite simply, it's to help promote for the event, Viva Italia Viva Edmonton, to be held this year on August 24th, 2014.
This year's Bocce Balls Tournament had 12 teams. Some very familiar with the game, and some for the very first time.
How is Bocce played? Well it's very similar to Curling. The closest rocks to the main ball boccino receive points. So if the Red team had 2 balls, and the next closest was the Blue ball. The blue ball stopped the red team from getting more points, thus only giving the Red team 2 points.
So which team are you routing for? Find out who won and who the top teams were to make it to the finals at Viva Italia Viva Edmonton, on August 24th, 2014.
