Over 240 players, friends, and volunteers came out for the Del Mar-Solana Beach Rotary Club’s 21st Annual Turf Bocce Tournament at the Surf Cup Sports Park in October. Solana Beach Mayor Mike Nichols and Councilmember David Zito opened the tournament by challenging Del Mar Mayor Terry Sinnot and Councilmember Sherryl Parks to the first game. The Solana Beach team ultimately prevailed and earned bragging rights until next year’s tournament.

Nearly 100 other teams played on 30 bocce courts. Jeff Neufield and Bill Seifen scored first place, Matt Van Meeteren and Seth Teater came in second, and Mike Price and Jon Dwyer won the consolation bracket. The event also included lunch and a silent auction, and raised more than $40,000 for major beneficiaries Reality Changers and Just in Time for Foster Youth, as well as other youth, community, and international programs.
