Boccé Bash 2011

The 2011 edition of the Bash is just around the corner; hopefully you’re all tuning up, playing with your balls.  Here are some details:

  1. Corporate sponsors are signing up!  I’ve sent letters to a bunch of companies.  If you want your company involved, contact me ASAP.
  2. We have a new title sponsor – Flip Flop Shops (Nanaimo).  Click here for more info.
  3. Registration is $25 per player (teams of two, come up with a team name/costume etc – like last few years)
  4. Registration opens TUES, JULY 5th and is on a “you pay, you’re in” basis; no spots reserved and I’m not chasing people for money this year.  Mark it on your calendar!
  5. Cheques to Ben Davies or cash is fine.
  6. SPACE IS LIMITED so do not delay.  At present, I have almost 40 teams who emailed to say they are interested!
  7. Registration and information forms will be online in a couple weeks.
  8. The tournament is Saturday, August 6th.

Stay tuned!

It’s official..time to FREE YOUR TOES!

Free your toes everyone!  Well, it took lots of work, negotiations and a million emails but we finally can officially say we are going to open the Flip Flop Shop in Woodgrove Mall probably in the last two weeks of June (stay tuned for the official date!).  Josée just returned from a week in California where she did the training on all facets of the business from ordering to staffing, inventory to marketing, bookkeeping to product knowledge; needless to say it was very comprehensive.

We’re just waiting for the building permit to settle then we can start the construction phase.  Josée has contracts set up with all our brand reps so we’ll be ordering shortly.  Some of the brands include Olukai, Reef, Sanuk, Havaianas, Flojos, O’Neill, Sole and Cobian – to name a few!  We’re both excited about the new business and think it will be a fun store for our friends to visit!  You can stay in touch with us directly by visiting our store Facebook page here.

Boccé survey

Hi everyone!  If you plan to compete in the 3rd Annual Boccé Bash, please complete the short survey if you haven’t already done so.  To reach the survey, please click here.  I’ll have an update in about two weeks regarding sponsors, entry deadlines, apparel and a few other things.  Thanks!

Gentlemen…start your engines!

I guess in the PC world my title should read “Gentle-people…start your engines” but it doesn’t sound as good.  Two weeks to go ’til Boccé 2010.  Field prep is mostly done although I will do a final “how-low-can-I-go-mow” just before the day.  We are making arrangements for the food and we’ll have some coolers ready to keep things chilly.  A few people dropped me a vine and said they’ve been out training, working on back-handed tosses, side-spin whirls and double-stack blockers.  One half of the 2010 championship team has been honing his game nightly on the pitches at Pridy Road.

If anyone has a spare boccé set, can you please let me know.  We need four in total although I would like to have one spare one just in case.  In addition, don’t forget to bring lawn chairs, a drink cooler and a jacket of some sort as it is usually windy at our place and can get a bit cold later in the evening.

Give a big shout out to our sponsors thus far:  The Head Shed, Surgenor Brewery, VI Fitness for Women, Lucky Lager, Ben Davies Financial Planning (shameless self-promotion!), Bill Kelly Golf, JBD Enterprises Inc. and Flip Flop Shops (Vancouver Island).  These guys help make the tourney what it is now and what it will be over the next few years.  At present, the interest level means that the 2011 edition will have 48 teams!

Stay tuned for a final update, probably around August 5th.
