3. Marco Island Bocce League
The Marco Island Bocce League is accepting registrations for the third season starting on Monday, Jan. 13.
The purpose of the League is to provide a coordinated bocce activity for the residents and winter vacationers to the Island. The teams may be made up of both genders. No experience is required; therefore, the skill level will vary.
A registration form is available at marcoislandbocceleague.com or may be picked up at the Mackle Park front desk. Information, Charles Pineno at 540-336-4121.
