NORTHWEST CHALLENGE
BY VERN COOPER
PRESIDENT, USBF WESTERN SECTOR
This month there was no question what I was going to write
about. In the past, my wife and I along with David and Judy Canclini would go to play in the Rossi Tournament at the Paisano club
in Gresham, Ore. The second year we went we were happy to see
another team from California, Girls Rule; Ginny Nelson, Toni Nichols, Bev Wright, and Maureen Kelleher.
Every year in Gresham they were having a Washington vs
Oregon Tournament just before the Rossi Tournament. After talking to Larry Cereghino and Pat Henry we came up with an idea to
involve California in their state competition. When we got home I
talked to several people here and the interest was high to become
involved. After last year’s competition we talked about having
Wash. and Ore. come here for the Challenge. We realized it would
be hard to get 32 people from each state, so we decided to combine the two and make it the Northwest against California, becoming The Northwest Challenge.
The Italian Athletic Club was chosen as the place to play
and they graciously agreed. We wanted to have something to
make it a two day affair so we decided on an Ill Sacco tournament
on Friday the 30th and the Northwest Challenge on Saturday the
31st of May. For those of you who don't know, the Northwest Challenge consists of 8, 4 person teams from each side. Every player
plays 1 game of singles, 1 game of doubles and 1 game with their
team with 1 point for each win and loss. This creates competition
because you never know who you will be playing against as the
lists are made up in random order. This year the Northwest
brought 27 players so we filled their roster in with some Ca. players to make 32.
On Friday we had 16 4 person teams. I tried to get all the
"A" players spread out and get 2 Ca. and 2 Northwest players on a
team plus 2 men and 2 women per team. The numbers didn't work
out just right but in the end teams were pretty evenly matched.
There were medals awarded for 1st, 2nd, 3rd, and 4th.
There are pictures of the winning teams in this newsletter. From
what I've heard, everyone had a great time on Friday and commented about the great food. My thanks to the kitchen staff at IAC
for stepping up both days.
On Sat. the Northwest Challenge started at 8:30 am with
teams playing first then doubles and finally singles. With 56 games
to be played on 4 courts we could see something had to be done
to speed things up. There were several people that just don't like to
play singles so they opted not to play singles which helped. Then
Larry Cereghino came up with something they do in Portland
which is play two singles matches on the same court at the same
time. It was a great time saver and I'm sure will be used again.
Having played in all the challenges so far I must say the play
of the players up north is really improving especially the two ladies
that were beating up on David Canclini and myself to the cheers of
everyone in the building. Games we would be sure to win just
aren't that easy any more which says a lot about the play up north.
Larry and I were the last singles match of the day and I must say
Larry is a worthy opponent that I always enjoy playing with and
against. At the end of the day California came out on top and a
good time was had by all. I want to send a special thanks to Jack
Elder for all his hard work in keeping track of who does what and
who plays who.
On Sunday June 1st many of the teams from up north went
to Sutter Creek to play and I hope they had a good time. All in all it
was 3 days of bocce that was a lot of fun and some new friendships made and old ones renewed. It’s something I know I look
forward to each year as I know the other Ca. people do.
I would like to thank all the players that participated in the 2
days at IAC for coming and making this event successful and I
hope to see you all again next year.

ROSS ON RULES
HAND
SIGNALS
By John Ross
Past President, USBF
The use of hand signals is common in many endeavors. We use them to greet friends, to say goodbye, and every sixteen year old learning to drive learns the right, left, and
stop hand signal made by a driver to signal an intended
course of action to other vehicles. Everyone is familiar with
a baseball umpire’s signal for safe or out. In bocce there are
many hand signals used in international play. Some of these
signals are also used in open play. In international and
world championship play in Punto, Raffa, Volo, there are
many games played in which there is no common language
between the referee and one or both teams. Can you imagine the chaos that would result if the communication was
based on shrugs, questioning looks, or frustrated body language? A brief description of the signs used in international
bocce competition is below.
POINT There are two main signs used by referees to signify
that the playing team has made a point. The referee will
hold the stick in a vertical position for a few seconds when
the point has been determined. The referee also may hold
up one or more fingers to signify how many points the team
has. Some referees also touch their thumb and fingers together up and down several times to signify the point as is
done in the game of Open in the United States.
NO POINT If a play fails to result in a point for the playing
team the referee will hold the stick in a horizontal position
and may hold up one or more fingers to signify how many
points the non-playing team is holding. Some referees also
may wag their index finger left to right in a vertical position
several times. This is also commonly done in the game of
Open in the United States.
RAFFA SHOT A player declares an intended raffa shot by
holding the fingers and thumb together, pointing them up,
and making a chopping motion forward and back. The referee will point to the designated target so there is no confusion
about the target ball.
VOLO SHOT A player declares an intended volo shot by
holding the hand out with the palm facing down and projecting the hand in an arc toward the referee.
BERSAGLIO The word “bersaglio” means target in Italian.
This word is used to describe the situation created when a
ball and pallino or two or more balls have less than 13 centimeters between them after a play. When this occurs a player can hit either ball when making a raffa or volo shot. Also,
when the pallino and ball are bersaglio, a player may make a
raffa shot in the volo zone. The referee signals a bersaglio
condition by pointing to the two or more objects with the stick
and moving the stick around them in a circular motion.
Some referees also will hold the stick in the vertical position
with the two short legs of the stick at the top. A short cut
used by some referees to show bersaglio is to show two or
more fingers and make a circular motion with the index finder
pointing to the balls on the court.
PALLINO AND BALL A player must signal to the referee
the object he or she wishes to declare when a raffa or volo
shot will be attempted. The signal for the pallino is to place
the thumb and index finger together and show the referee.
This is the same signal we use for the okay sign. A ball is
indicated by using a closed fist or by touching the fingers and
thumbs together making the shape of a large round ball at
the waist or chest level. The referee will then use the stick to
point to the object declared by the player so there is no misunderstanding between the referee and the player about
which object is to be shot.
INVALID PLAY When a player makes an invalid play by
moving a struck ball too far with a lag, or hits the wrong ball
on a raffa or volo attempt, the referee will hold up one hand.
This is a signal to the opponent that the rule of advantage
will apply. The opposing player can accept the new situation
or have the referee replace all the moved objects to their
original positions. This signal is also used to indicate an infraction such as a raffa shot that does not clear the ninemeter or D line.
LEAVE EVERYTHING IN PLACE When a player is asked by
the referee to make a decision after an invalid play the player
can accept the new situation if it is to the player’s advantage.
The signal for this is to bring the hands together at the waist
level with palms facing down and move the arms in an outward motion similar to a baseball umpire’s signal for “safe.”
There is a misconception among some players that once this
decision is made it can’t be changed. A player can change
his mind in certain situations. The team captain is the only
one that can communicate a decision to a referee and can
overrule a decision made by a player on the team. Also,
referees can allow a player to change their decision as long
as balls have not been marked in the new position or replaced to an original mark. It is up to the referee’s discretion
to allow a player to change a decision.
RESTORE THE DISPLACED OBJECTS If, after an invalid
play, a player wishes to have the referee restore the displaced objects to their original positions the signal is to raise
the arm with the palm facing the player and move the palm
toward the player’s body similar to the sign one might make
in asking someone to come towards the signaler.
DISTANCE Sometimes a player might want to ask the referee what the distance is between the point and pallino. The
signal for this is to hold the palms together and move them
outward once or twice. The referee will take a rough measurement of the distance. Some referees will hold up one or
more fingers. Each finger represents a distance of 10 centimeters. A more common sign is to hold the hands on a horizontal stick indicating the actual distance, or slide the pegs
to indicate the distance.
CAN I COME DOWN TO HAVE A LOOK? When all else
fails, a player might need to take a close up look at the situation in order to make a decision about leaving or replacing
objects, or whether to shoot or lag. The signal for permission to approach is to place the index and middle finger near
the eyes and then point the hand in the direction of the referee or objects to be observed.
When players and the referee speak a common language these signs should also be used. They speed up the
game and help communication between a referee and a
player. The use of signals also eliminates the need for a
player and a referee to shout back and forth during a game.
It presents a more enjoyable experience for the player, referee, and the spectators!

Pensieri e Riflessioni
Thoughts and Reflections by Frank Rivera
Great Photographs
I’ve said many times in this column and in conversations with people how much I love photographs. Every
photo you look at, no matter how mundane you think it
may look, has a story to tell. That’s why, unless it is blurry, or the shutter was accidentally pressed while pointing
the camera at my feet, or some other such undesired
subject, I keep all the photos.
Over the past two plus years I’ve been doing this
newsletter, I’ve taken many thousands of photographs. I
do have my favorites that I’m especially proud of, but
there are others I like as well or better. Those are the
ones I don’t take myself. They are conceived through an
eye other than my own, which gives them a different perspective. Here are three that I particularly like:
In April of 2013, I knew I wouldn’t be able to make
the South San Francisco Italian American Citizens Club 3
Person Open. I asked Matt Nastari if he would take a few
photos of the event and maybe write a short article. He
came through for me big time, sending me a great article
and enough photos to fill three pages, the amount I usually give to each tournament. There were a lot of photos
of the players in action, but my favorite one doesn’t have
any players in it. I call it the “Empty Battlefield.”
The finals hadn’t yet begun, but the stage was set
and the arsenal of choice was at the ready. This is by far
one of my favorite bocce photographs in my collection.
The Empty Battlefield
Photograph by Matt Nastari
Mario Conti, Ron Del Carlo, Colleen Randazzo,
Vern Cooper (in front) Diane Kelley and Andrea Ross.
This first photo above was taken at the May 3 Raffa Tournament by Nella Conti. Not only is Vern Cooper
looking right at the camera, but the five players in the
background are looking up-court (Mario and Colleen),
down-court (Ron) or at each other (Diane and Andrea). If
I didn’t know better, I’d say this almost looks posed. It’s a
great photograph as far as I’m concerned.
The photo on the left
of Albert Leonardi was taken by Bob Enea at the Festa Italia in Monterey a number of years ago. I can imagine Bob pressing the
shutter right at that perfect
split-second moment when
Albert’s arm had stopped its
backward motion and had
not yet started moving forward. I liked this photo so
much that I isolated Albert
and used it, and still do, at
the top of our “Upcoming
Tournaments” page. Yeah,
that’s where you’ve seen
this photo before!
So where am I going with this? My point is simple.
I’ve tried to drive this point into your heads many times
over the months: Please send any photographs you think
others might like to see. Your eyes see a different perspective and will give us a look at what you regard as a
good bocce photograph. Not only will you have the satisfaction of having your photograph in the newsletter, but I
may get another photograph to add to my “favorites” list.
Dancing With The Stars?
Nope. Just Nancy Martignago using a little English
to guide her ball down the court.

Western Sector Representative Report
Putting A Face On the USBF
A few years back I was working on a new court when a guy named Vern Cooper and his wife from Sacramento arrived at Club Paesano in Gresham, Oregon to roll a few balls. They were on vacation visiting Vern’s son
across the river in Vancouver and wanted to roll a few balls. I introduced myself but didn’t have too much conversation with them. I was busy and had only a short time to finish my project.
Not long after that, Vern and his wife returned again along with another couple from California to play in
the annual Aldo Rossi tournament. The other couple was David and Judy Canclini from Stockton. I soon found
out that David was a representative of the USBF. Up until that time, I had only heard of the USBF. There were a
few of the old timers who were individual members but for the most part, nobody wanted anything to do with
them. For me it didn’t matter. I just wanted the tournament to go off as planned and prayed for no rain.
David came to me early in the day and talked about the USBF and offered to pay the $5.00 new member
fee for me. I thought that this was nice of him and several of us took him up on his offer. If he cared enough to
pay for our new membership then we would give it a try. What David did that day was put a face on the USBF.
Because of that visit, I somehow became more involved with the USBF. I really didn’t want to but I did. I had just
spent 34 years running youth programs and coaching kids and I just wanted to relax and enjoy my new found
time.
Let’s fast forward to today. I am now Western Sector Representative. and I really don’t have a job description. I do wish the USBF had job descriptions for their officers. I still have hope that someday it will happen. But I
do know that there are far too many Clubs that join and probably never see anyone from the USBF.
The only thing I do know about my position is how I felt when a representative from the USBF visited us. It
had an impact and something that I always try to do now is visit the new Clubs that join in the Northwest and explain a little about the USBF. Put a face to the organization.
Since I became Western Sector Rep. I have visited several Clubs around the Northwest and most play
different rules than we do. We didn’t play USBF rules at the Paesano Club until just the past few years and we
made those changes real slow, over the course of a few years. It’s not our place to tell Clubs how they should
play their local leagues or run their tournaments. It’s our job to put a face on the Federation and offer any kind of
help we can provide.

Extending the Playing Season
Scappoose, Oregon just joined the growing number cities in Oregon where
bocce courts are popping up. The courts pictured were built by “Bocce e Luce,” a
Sherwood, Oregon company that specializes in bocce court construction. These
courts are syn-lawn courts that will provide a longer playing season in the usually
wet spring and fall seasons. With natural surface courts in the Northwest, the
bocce season last only 4 months at the most. With the syn-lawn courts, bocce
enthusiasts will be able to play 8 to 9 months of the year.

Umpqua Valley Bocce
By Larry Cereghino
When I heard that there was a new USBF Bocce Club in
Umpqua Valley, I was kind of excited to get down to Roseburg,
Oregon and meet them. For those of us who live in the Northern Oregon Valleys, we think of Roseburg as a logging town
and not somewhere you would find a Bocce Club. But low and
behold, what I found was somewhat like Paradise.
Umpqua Valley Bocce Club is located in a couple of different areas surrounding Roseburg, Oregon. My trip this day
took me to one of their locations about 10 minutes outside
Roseburg. To the Bed & Breakfast C.H. Bailey House.
The C.H. Bailey House is nestled in one of the 100 Valleys of the Umpqua. It is a historic, country-quiet retreat surrounded by rolling hills, pastures and a 50 acre tree farm. The
day I made my trip couldn’t have been a better day to visit: 80
degrees and no clouds in the sky.
I met a couple of friends of mine at the Douglas County
Library; Ed Cerbone and Reed Abrahamson, who play Bocce
around the Northwest, and followed them out to the C.H. Bailey
House. When I got out of my car, I could tell this was a very
unique place. It was so quiet and picturesque. The Tuscan-like
rolling hills with their green pastures and animals grazing, the
manicured gardens and manicured property. All I could think
was “wow”; nice.
The first person greeting me as I stretched my legs following the 3 hour trip was Rick Abbott. I spoke with Rick on
several occasions about bocce and my pending trip and it was
good to finally put a face to the voice. As more members arrived Rick introduced me to everyone and then the fun began.
I spoke with the group briefly about the USBF and I listened to Rick and others explain about the way they play.
When I spoke to them about the different set of rules, I could
tell that my way of shooting was different than theirs. I then
demonstrated two shots, (Raffa, and Volo). I have been real
lucky when I have demonstrated these shots in the past and
again on that day. I hit them both. (If only I could do that when I
play). They were a little reluctant to play that way and that was
fine with me. I grew up playing the way they do.
I was a little surprised when Rick asked me to pick the
teams to play the two DCG courts but I’m no fool. My first pick
for my team was Ed Cerbone who, without a doubt is one of the
Northwest’s best laggers. It didn’t take long to see that this
group was just like my fellow players at the Paesano Bocce
Club. We got into the politics of Bocce real soon which is “beer
C. H. Baily House
or wine”. I chose beer first because I figured I was good for one
and then I had to make the 3 hour drive home.
The 2nd game I was teamed up with Jay Couron who,
along with his wife own the C. H. Bailey House. A great guy
who right away saw that my glass was empty (true hospitality)
and brought me a glass of local wine that was totally tasty. The
game didn’t last too long as Jay proved he knew the courts real
well and continually put the first bocce on the pallino.
I decided to sit out after two games and just soaked up
the atmosphere of the Bocce Club, the views of the surrounding hills and just the beauty of the place. I was handed a brochure about the C.H. Bailey House from Jay and as I read, I
knew my wife would love this place. “Come relax with a book,
star gaze, bird watch or soak in the hot tub. Or maybe you’re
looking for adventure. Hike to a local waterfall, visit award winning wineries, see Crater Lake, white water rafting, mountain
bike the North Umpqua Trail, fly fish or visit the wild animal
park.
When the sun started to go down, I knew it was time to
head out. I really didn’t want to but there were courts to fix at
the Paesano’s place. I was offered a place to stay with Ed who
has a monster house in Roseburg or stay at the Bailey House.
They really know how to make a guy feel welcome.
This was a fun trip and one I hope to make again real
soon. It’s days like this when I really enjoy being the Western
Sector Representative.
I really want to thank everyone there who made my trip
enjoyable. So thanks to Ed, Reed, Rick, Josh, Caleb, Michael,
Alan, Randy, Tim, Chuck, Jay and Sherry. If I missed anyone;
sorry, but thanks to all.
I will return.

The West Coast Shootout
Makes Its California Debut
In Stockton, Ca. On Saturday, May 31, 2014
By Larry Cereghino
The West Coast Shootout is like the Ryder Cup in
golf. Players get a chance to show their skills in 4-person
teams, doubles and singles. One point is awarded for each
match won.………….…………………………………………..
Usually, singles are played first. Captains write
down the order in which they want their players to play and
submit the lineup to the scorer. They do the same thing
with doubles and then teams. At the end of the day who
ever has the most points is declared the winner.
In the past this tournament was played at the home of the
Paesano Bocce Club, Club Paesano/Cedarville Park. The
format was a little different.…………………………………
Oregon had played Washington for a few years prior
to California coming on board. That match was always
played the day before the Aldo Rossi Tournament. When
California entered the fray, we extended the tournament a
day and started the matches on Friday making this a three
day event. Oregon played California on Friday, then came
back and played Washington on Saturday morning. After
lunch Washington played California...………………………
This type of format was used for two years when the
three Captains got together to change the format. California had won lopsided victories in three of the four different
matches. Only once did Oregon get close losing by only 2
points and that was decided in the last team game played.
A twelve to eleven win by Ca.. It was decide that to make
things a little more competitive, the Northwest States
would combine and play Ca.………………………………..
Prior to changing the format, sixteen players from
each State were used to form the teams. When we went to
the three day event eight more were added to the teams.
This was done to accommodate all the people from California who wanted to come. When we went to the Northwest vs California, a total of 32 players from each squad
played..………………………………………………...
With 32 players from the Northwest playing 32 players from Ca., things did get more competitive. California
Reed Abrahamson
Susan Flynn
did win but the last two years things were close. No blowouts.
It was always my intent that this tournament rotate between the States, but because most of the Washington players play on lawn bowling grass we decided to
play at Club Paesano..………………………………………
Woodland Park in Seattle is working with the city to
get Bocce Courts built and should be finished by 2015
so we decided to get things moving to another site and we
really wanted to get more people to play in California so
away we went to the IAC in Stockton to play this year’s
West Coast Shootout. The Northwest could only muster up
28 players so we borrowed a few from Stockton...
It was good for the NW players to see these types of
courts. It wasn't good for us to play on them. We got walloped. But a great time was had by all.………………...
Next years tournament will be held in Seattle if they
finish their courts. If not, then we will head back to Cedarville park, home of the Paesanos.…………..………………
Drawbacks to this size and format of tournament is
when played on only 4 courts. It takes all day of sitting
around just to play three games. It goes somewhat faster
with 6 courts.…………………………..……………………….
In the Northwest we do some crazy things when it
comes to bocce. We play skills tournaments where you
test your skills lagging to a spot on the court or circle. You
play with your opposite hand or even throw the pallino last.
To make things go quicker you play two games at the
same time on the same court. We just like the fun of getting together and having fun. So we decided to put our
minds and creative thinking together and think of a new
format to play with the good folks of California. We enjoy
playing this tournament and want it to continue but we
need to be able to accommodate more players and more
games.
Next year we hope to see everyone in Seattle but if
not, we'll see ya all in Oregon.
