The 2011 Bocce Awards

Last night's bocce awards

Every year, our bocce team gathers at the local pizza place to eat, drink and reminisce about the previous season. This year was no different.

Every year, I make an award for each member of our team. For a few years, it was framed certificates, then medallions to hang about the neck.

This year, we went for a more musical attribution.

Each Joanie Loves Bocce teammate received an award and a matching song. I burned the songs on a mix cd. Eleven songs, eleven cds, one for each of member of my favorite bocce team in the whole world.

I put the individual cd covers together on my ferry ride. I may have confused the other commuters with my arts and crafts but I had a lot of fun in the meantime.

Each award mapped nicely to these Mexican loteria cards that I picked up at a local grocery store. (Napa Valley visitor pro tip! For a cheap wine country lunch, stop for tasty tacos at the La Azteca grocery store.)

Lasts night we distributed the awards over pizza and wine with lots of love.
We¬†can’t wait for next year.

I think we’ll make it to playoffs, don’t you?
