Next time, we'll break into doublettes (or triplette) teams - running two games at once. (Winners playing Winners/Losers obviously playing... Losers)
The group had a new player, Bryan, friend of Aaron's pointing on the opposing team. Bryan has bocce experience, so he was hardly a beginner - pointing rather nicely - and securing a victory for his team:
James/Mike/Tim/Bryan/Abu 13 against Pat/Jeff/Mark/Aaron/Hitesh 6
Pat and I have a theory going that if we can defeat the team with Mike on it, then we can break his winning streak now and forever. Too bad we couldn't push him off the summit today.
James came to play, and his superior shooting, coupled with solid strategic advice left us at 6 points.... Blech!
