It was a hot but beautiful day in Livermore on Saturday, August 13 when our host Bruce Prescott opened up Casa Di Prescott and its backyard to welcome the fellowship of Niles Rotarians for the annual Bocce tournament. About 40 people showed up for fun, food and fellowship that afternoon and they were not disappointed!
Our BBQ Master “Bubba” fired up the grill so that we could feast on his delicious Tri-tip, chicken and hotdogs. The food was amazing. Judy Coleman and Dave Smith’s salads were awesome! Everyone raved about Bubba’s baked beans and Lana’s “Sex in a Pan” was to die for! We stayed well hydrated in the heat with cold beverages and wine that flowed throughout the day. It was great seeing Paul Parhiala’s grandkids and Sam Forbes boys having a fun time in the pool and playing with Bruce’s Reverse Raffle prize dog and best friend, Jake. While the grill was going, teams were formed and matches played. Manohar’s son, Saideep, showed the “old folk” a thing or two on the bocce court. The final rulings were given by Bocce master Steven Lloyd and in the end the victory was seized by Don and Sandy Cole!
If you weren’t able to make it this year, I’m hoping that we left Casa Di Prescott’s better than we found it so that you will have a chance to come and experience the fun next year!
