Sons In Retirement (SIR) Branch #19 just hosted a pre-season Bocce Tournament for its members at Campo di Bocce in Livermore.  Twenty-four men, including newbies and seasoned bocce veterans, competed in this indoor competitive event held before the bocce season starts this Spring.  Afterwards, everyone enjoyed a delicious three course pasta feed in the bocce facilities integrated Italian Restaurant.  The Branch’s bocce chair, John Fernando, created the tournament rules.  Four six-person teams were led by their respective Captains: Dennis Barbieri John Fernando, Jim Garcia, and Tom Lathrop. The tournament ladder had two tiers.  Barbieri’s team won the overall event in a tight second match against Garcia’s team.  Fernando’s and Lathrop’s teams competed in the conciliation game.  

Sons in Retirement Branch #19 is a Concord/Clayton based social club for retired men of all ages.  The Branch meets monthly for lunch at Oakhurst Country Club in Clayton.  A guest speaker is also featured.  The club also hosts a variety of sporting and recreational activities.  These include bocce, bowling, golf, dine-outs with spouses, and interesting day trips around the Bay Area.  Membership is free.  New members are welcome.  For information contact the SIR Hot Line at 925-338-1996 or email Bruce Persons at: brucep@astound.net.
