7th Annual Skip Ipsen Memorial Bocce Tournament

The CBCA is pleased to announce that the seventh annual Skip Ipsen Memorial Bocce Tournament will be held on Saturday, October 14, 2023 at the Ipsen Family Bocce Park. This tournament honors Skip Ipsen, the man whose vision and generosity set in motion what is now one of the nicest bocce venues anywhere and our very popular open, league, tournament and rental play.
