Bocce on the Net
Since I can't find any other bocce resources on the Net, I'll just have to put up what I know about the game and what I can glean from the rule book. So, all you folks who've e-mailed me over the last couple of months, here ya go! Bocce has been around since the Roman Empire and conjures visions of old Italian men wiling away warm Mediterranean afternoons discussing politics and drinking red wine. I'm neither old nor Italian, but I have wiled away many an afternoon with friends discussing politics and drinking beer while playing bocce ;-) Bocce is closely related to lawn bowling. To the best of my knowledge, the biggest difference is that bocce is played on a hard-surface court with a backstop at each end, while lawn bowling is played on grass with a relatively free-form "court". By this definition many folks are lawn bowling since very few constructed bocce courts exist in the U.S. The following set of rules are condensed from the official guide published by the International Bocce Association. Many variations exist, and I play a very relaxed set of rules in keeping with tradition. For tournament play, consult the official guide (see end of document). The Courts For lawn bowling, you don't really use a court. Just choose any space of lawn that's large and reasonably level. Then step off about 20 adult paces and use that as a good playing distance. For bocce:

    Bocce originated in Italy and is one of the oldest of all lawn bowling games. It is now gaining popularity in the United States since it can be played by people of all ages and on a great variety of surfaces. Bocce is played between two players or two teams of up to four players on a team. Bocce is played with 8 large balls, 4 of one color, 4 of another color and one small target ball called the "Jack," or "Pallino." Players seek to place their Bocce Balls nearer to the target jack than their opponent or displace the opponent's Bocce Ball and so improve the position of their Bocce Ball in relation to the Jack, (Pallino). Bocce can be played in a variety of ways using various rules. OPEN BOCCE CLOSED COURT BOCCE There are certain added rules and methods of play defined by the court layout.

    Table of Contents
    Bocce is the Italian version of lawn bowling. The earliest known form of the sport was a game played in the Italian Alps, early in the Christian Era, in which stones were tossed at a target stonenot necessarily to hit it, but to land as close as possible to it. This was a major amusement for Roman soldiers, who spread it through the empire. Balls were eventually substituted for the stones and they were usually rolled rather than tossed. Three distinct types of lawn bowling developed through the centuries. In France, the game was known as boules , from the Classical Latin word for ball. A different form of the sport became known in England as "lawn bowls". Bocce, also known as boccia, derived its name from the Vulgar Latin word for ball, bottia Italian immigrants brought bocce to the United States. Its original centers of popularity were New York City and San Francisco because of their large Italian-American populations. But, as newer generations grew away from the sport, bocce declined and seemed in danger of extinction in this country. The sport experienced a small resurgence, mainly in California, during the 1970s and it's grown rapidly during the last decade. The center of the sport in the U. S. is Martinez, California, which has more than a thousand competitors in league play and many more who simply play for fun.

    10. Bocce History
    The COLLEGIUM COSMICUM AD BUXEAS is the preeminent international organization for the sport of bocce. the Egyptians played a form of bocce with polished rocks been recorded as early as 5200
    Throwing balls toward a target is the oldest game known to mankind. As early as 5000 B.C. the Egyptians played a form of bocce with polished rocks. Graphic representations of figures tossing a ball or polished stone have been recorded as early as 5200 B.C. While bocce today looks quite different from its early predecessors, the unbroken thread of bocce’s lineage is the consistently common objective of trying to come as close to a fixed target as possible. From this early objective, the basic rules of bocce were born. From Egypt the game made its way to Greece around 800 B.C. The Romans learned the game from the Greeks, then introduced it throughout the empire. The Roman influence in bocce is preserved in the game’s name; bocce derives from the Vulgate Latin bottia , meaning boss. The early Romans were among the first to play a game resembling what we know as bocce today. In early times they used coconuts brought back from Africa and later used hard olive wood to carve out bocce balls. Beginning with Emperor Augustus, bocce became the sport of statesman and rulers. From the early Greek physician Ipocrates to the great Italian Renaissance man Galileo, the early participants of bocce have noted that the game’s athleticism and spirit of competition rejuvenates the body. As the game enjoyed rapid growth throughout Europe, being the sport of nobility and peasants alike, it began to threaten with the health of nations. The popularity of the game was said to interfere with the security of the state because it took too much time away from archery practice and other military exercises. Consequently, Kings Carlos IV and V prohibited the playing of bocce, and doctors from the University of Montpellier, France, tried to discredit the claim that playing bocce had great therapeutic effect in curing rheumatism.

    11. Ciao Bella! Bocce, Italian Greyhound Extraordinaire...
    Hep IG wants to be a super model when she grows up, and provides her puppy and most recent portfolio.
    My breed's history: The Italian Greyhound is the smallest of the family of gazehounds (dogs that hunt by sight). The breed is believed to have originated more than 2,000 years ago in the Mediterranean basin, possibly in the countries now known as Greece and Turkey. Italian Greyhounds were the favorite breed of various royal and aristocratic families, including Frederick the Great of Prussia, Catherine the Great of Russia, and England's Queen Victoria. Someone told Jess that the phrase "Beware of Dog" originated in Italy or Greece in response to Italian Greyhounds. As you might imagine, the phrase didn't have quite the same meaning that it does today. As the legend goes, signs saying "Beware of Dog" were placed on the gates of houses so that visitors would be careful not to step on or kick the household's beloved IG. Some of my favorite websites: Italian Greyhound Club of America
    Lotje's Italian Greyhound Museum

    The Poop

    My girl Jess only loves me because I'm beautiful. She exploits me by forcing me to pose for photos all the time . When I was a pup, I used to want to be a model/actress and bask in the glow of international fame, but now that I'm older and wiser I think I'll settle for a good old fashioned life of leisure.

    What is Bocce
    Bocce is 70 centuries old and so are the arguments that go with it. Bocce, the bowling game of the Caesar's, isn't a sport. It is an excuse - an excuse to get out of the house for several hours, to sip a glass of wine, to bet a few lira and to provide fuel for the universal Italian hobby of arguing. Bocce is the direct ancestor of such games as bowling, lawn bowling, duck pins and candle pins. It also could be called the stepfather of such modern pastimes as curling, shuffleboard and horse shoe pitching.
    Reprinted from an article from Dodge News Magazine (July, 1967) in a story by Harold Claasen. 2003 Tournament Winners
