Ideas. Buffalo. Love. Preservation. Energy. Passion.
Let me tell you about Providence, RI’s Downtown Bocce League… and why Buffalo is the perfect candidate for something like this!
First of all – Go to this link and check out Providence’s Bocce Team Page.. Great website! (Link to Website Here)
Here is why this is awesome.
The Bocce Court is set on a vacant land parcel in the downtown core of Providence. The vacant lot also has a white screen to show movies when Bocce is not in session! Double use of vacant land! Buffalo has a bunch of great vacant lots that are sitting there lifeless… why not convert one into a combo Bocce / Movie center? This is a simple, almost temporary use of a vacant lot but beats having a lifeless, half mowed lot and can bring life to an area!
Most importantly, by the reaction and results in Providence, you can tell this is so much fun and soooo hip! The Bocce League has parties, they hang out, they play… there is a link below about their league. Check it out. Their team names and party fliers scream urban city dwellers that appreciate good fonts.
So why doesn’t Buffalo have one? Lets start thinking about where this could happen and how we can fund the costs for the initial start up. I will start the first team - Team Buffalove and will contribute $50.00 towards this cause.
Let’s do this, Buffalo! Buffalo Bocce League 2013!
