Mahalo to everyone who braved the unseasonal (for TikiBocce(tm) )weather, sticky-ing it out until the finals of the tournament was concluded.

My better half has the full story...

Team Pele's Revenge kicked everyones collective arses to take Top Bocce Honors.

Seriously kicked arse.

If they could have literally kicked the other teams, they probably would have.


The MaiKai gents kicked musical behind. Was that a Link Wray cover? Sweet.


I think we probably topped off at around 95 degrees. Jinkies. Good thing we a whole lotta ice on hand.



Thanks to everyone who came by and made this yet another success. We took zero photos. I'm hoping some of the people with cameras will send me a disc of snaps?


Oh. And can I tell you about the good roll?

Yes! Photos must be posted!

The bocce was a blast and the drinks were delicious as always. Great to see many friends and meet some new ones on the court! Team "Steve Holt!" will definitely be back to contend at the next tournament! Thanks again to the wonderful hosts at Lund Manor for another great event. The perfect way to spend a hot summer afternoon!

Thanks for a great time, as usual, Scott & Thayer!

My dad is soo proud. I'll have to send him the link for the box scores. He actually plays Bocce 2x per week at their local senior center. My mom's theory is that all his practice helped me somehow. I've never played so well in my life! Still a bit shocked.

The trophy looks mighty sweet on our bar.

Tiki Bocce IV: Missionary's Downfall"*

It was so hot I saw a tree chasing a dog.

The agony of defeat....and the feet. My socks literally melted into my sneaks. You know, I think I need to find a religion with a better dress code. The Buddhists with the long flowing robes, those look pretty cool.

"Oh. And can I tell you about the good roll?"

Please do. From about about the sixth qualifying match on I remember very little. A good time was had though, indeed. Sure, Quicksand beat a quick exit, but we do have spirit. Get it, spirit? Oh Lordy, even with mild dehydration and a too-high body core temp I still got it.

Many thanks to T&S for a great Tiki Bocce.

Next Year!
Elder Midnite


* Always did hate that f&%@#in' drink.

We had a swelteringly fine time at our first Tiki Bocce. Mahalo to Thayer and Scott for their generous hospitality and beautiful environment. I think I am now hooked on bocce. Just wait until next year when Team W.G.K.Y.A is in full
force(or fool force). We will live up to our namesake!

Thayer and Scott,

Thank you so much for a wonderful time. This year was especially fun, despite the unusual temperature. You thoughtfully had the air conditioner on inside, so being able to pop into the coolness of Lund Manor from time to time really helped. And the crazy Elder Mai Tai and Midnite were as usual hilarious. Poor Elder Midnite was officiating, so his pith helmet took the brunt of the heat.

Thanks too for the birthday wishes. That was really fun...! Thanks so much!

xoxo
CL

In order to seem like I'm maintaining some sort of forum decorum, I will just ask you to slip back into
a booze soaked state of mind and try to remember the obnoxious name I came up with for my hired gun team
of ball rollers. The "W" stands for "We're" and the "G" stands for "gonna"...

Well then we can only assume that the "K" stands for "Kiss"!!!

Thanks a ton Scott & Thayer! What a great time! By the way, who made the coconut rum balls? They were awesome, as were the drinks, the music, and the overall bocce vibe!

Jon Howell brought the rum balls. Home made down in scenic Santa Cruz.
I'll pass along the kudos.

More rum than balls in those things. Yes, they were very yummy.
