March 2018 Newsletter

It is with great sadness that I start with the passing of Vito “Bill” Zotto on January 26th with his family by his side. Vito was one of our founding members and was fun loving, humble, caring and generous to a fault. Always ready to play, rarely missed a game and played a great game of Bocce. He and Pat retired to Lake Summerset where he continued to make friends and impact our lives. A Memorial Mass will be held April 21st at St. Mary Catholic Church. Vito will be missed!

At the time of this newsletter 17 teams have signed up for the 2018 Bocce Ball Season, which means I have collected dues in full for these teams. It would be so nice to hear from the rest of you and that means old and new members alike. It would take a huge burden off the staff from collecting dues at our spring meeting in the lodge at noon on April 12th. Please send in the full team dues or individual member dues, $40 per team or $10 per individual. If you do not have a team just let us know and we can help. We also have a real need for alternates, great for someone that cannot commit to playing every week. Please include members name (legible please) and phone number you can be reached at. Make checks payable to L S Bocce Ball Club and mail the above information to Gerry Bernar at 2184 Gainsboro Avenue Davis IL. By waiting too long it does not give enough time to put teams together and create the schedule.

Thank You Gerry for this report the Bocce Club would be lost without you and I like to be able to call you a friend. Making friends through Bocce is a big part of playing. In 2018 we anticipate a 21 week schedule with a May 3rd start, July 5th picnic, September 27th playoffs and October 4th Banquet. The Bocce Club is open to all Lake Summerset residents and lot owners. We have the courts reserved on Thursdays, May through September, and play regularly scheduled games starting at 10:00 A.M. each week. Our spring meeting date at the lodge is April 12th, join us at the bocce courts this summer.
