The first half of the Sisk Park Bocce Club’s season was completed on Sunday, Jan. 2, and divisional winners were honored at our awards potluck held at Sisk Park the following Sunday.

Play in Division A proved to be highly competitive with three teams tying for first place with only one loss: Larry Beck/Jane Cambridge, Mike Buscaglia/Doc Heckler, and Larry/Nancy Vanderslice. Congratulations to the rest of our first-place divisional winners: Division B: Bob and Rita Lobello, Division C: Joe and John Terranova, Division D: Marilyn Conner and Mike Giarlo tied with Claire Ziegler and Marie Boyes, Division E: Linda Bute and George DiIorio, Division F: Patty Zuch and David Zuch, Division G: Maryclare and Ed New, Division H: Cynthia and Rod Stalter, and Division I: Brian and Wendy Pederson.

A great time was had by all at our potluck with the introduction of John Skoko, sales associate from Coulter Automotive Group of Phoenix, our club sponsor, who provided promotional items that were raffled off to participants. Additionally, new members were registered for the second session, which kicked off on Jan. 16 and will run through March 20.
