IRON MOUNTAIN - Nine years ago, Dickinson Area Bocce Association summer season ended with the Lisa Lundy tournament on Labor Day.
Many players wanted to continue enjoying the nice fall weather and play more bocce. Jim Snowdon came up with the idea of the Fall Shootout, a singles tournament for players over the age of 13.
As added encouragement, he said he would sponsor the tournament for 10 years. Dude's Delivery Fall Shootout, the tenth and final tournament, will be Saturday, Sept. 15, at 9 a.m.
Steve Calavieri won the first three events as Mike Constantini and John Gaudette split the next six tournaments. Constantini and Gaudette are not expected to attend this year leaving the opportunity for Cavalaieri to take the lead in Shootout titles or someone else to claim the final Dude's tournament.
There is no entry fee and awards are compliments of Dude's. Register by calling John Gaudette at 774-6106 or 800-394-5505.
