There are plenty of videos about rules, but this short 1 minute clip sums it up.
Who Are We?
Located in Gresham, Oregon members of Club Paesano have been playing bocce at Cedarville Park since 1976. Under the shade of tall fir trees two initial courts were built with four more added by 2006. With courts came tournaments and with tournaments came leagues. Click to read more about Paesano Bocce Club’s history.

Thank you for all your enthusiasm and participation in the event. Even buying wine, t-shirts, and hats. Thank you for all those came early and stayed after the tournament to put away all the equipment as board members: Rick Cervi, Doug Burchak, Mario Pompei, and Kelly Barasch appreciate all the help. Kudos to Daniela Sardo for transporting lunch orders from Festa to court. Thank you to Belinda Tieu for updating scores and tabulating results.
Everyone is a vital part of the success of the tournament through your courtesy, cooperation, and support for each other.
Here are a few pictures from the winning teams and a link to video of the championship game. What an amazing finish to the championship game. In the last two frames, Glen Cummingham lagging for the win for “Never To Late” and selling the point. (I know he would love to have that one back,) Tough break for Glen. Then Chance Rossi’s championship pressure lag to grab the point. And then I Santi Santi e Bennie’s Larry Cereghino’s shot to open up the frame and finally Nick Rossi’s amazing 80 ft raffa to win the game! What an exciting game! Two heavy weights battling to the end, I apologize for the video. I need to get a stand for my camera!
Ciao, Mario Pompei
Second Place: “Never Too Late”, Michael and Chance Rossi, Jesse Doss and Glen Cunningham both Lynnwood, Washington
Third Place: “Pallino or Bust” Joachim Creten, Jamie Trullinger, Brad Cotton, Rick Cervi
