2020 USBF National Championship tournament canceled

Unfortunately, for the first time in USBF history our National Bocce Championship in St. Louis has been cancelled. After consulting with several officers and the Board of the Italian American Club of St. Louis, this difficult decision has been made. The main concern was exposing our membership to possible health issues because of the uncertainty of this virus and the current government mandates deemed this necessary.

I also urge all bocce players to avoid participating in any events for at least 5-6 weeks or until the local mandates are lifted. Do NOT use “house” bocce and clean your own constantly. Please consider not playing at all! Most of our membership is in the high risk zone and we want to see everyone next year in St. Louis. May God be with you!
