In 2019 the CBCA Bocce Committee completed a major upgrade to the Ipsen Family Bocce Park. We have installed 5,000 sq. ft. of pavers around the courts.
The pavers have greatly increased the aesthetic appeal of bocce park. In addition, they have helped to reduce pebbles and debris from gtetting on the courts.
This project has partially funded through the sale of engraved pavers.
Three sizes of personalized pavers are available for $200, $400 and $600.
Much of the funding for the paver installation has come from the sale of personalized engraved pavers.
in late 2018 the CBCA agreed to commit a maximum of $65,000 toward this project IF and only when the Bocce Committee first secured commitments to raise at least 35% ($35,000 based on a project cost of $100,000).
In order to do this we proposed to sell engraved pavers in three sizes.
In early 2019 we surpassed our $35,000 goal with nearly $50,000 in orders, and the project was a go.
The pavers were installed in July of 2019.
After the initial installation, we are continuing to offer the opportuniy for the purchase of additional personalized pavers.
We will place an order approximately every six months, and the additional pavers will replace blank pavers in the bocce park.
In addition, for the champion team of each bocce season, and for the winning team of each annual Skip Ipsen Memorial Tournament, we have installed a large paver commemorating their championship.
We will continue adding a paver for each new champion.
These pavers are installed in Champions Row between courts two and three.

To be included in the next installation round, please signup, design and pay for your paver by December 31, 2023.
We all know that bocce is a social anchor in Clayton and is something that has made downtown Clayton a destination.
We all love coming in off Oak Street at night to see dozens of people gathering under the lights, putting aside the stress of the day, to enjoy a couple of hours of social and competitive fun.
We have players less than 10 years old and older than 90. We provide a social and (yes its true) athletic outlet for hundreds of couples who would otherwise be sitting home watching television.
We are a destination for social gatherings, birthday parties, wedding parties, anniversary parties, graduation parties, corporate team building events, and high quality tournaments.
