I had a quick turnaround after the table tennis tournament; the next day was the boccia ball tournament. Boccia ball is essentially lawn bowling, where there’s a target ball and the two players try to throw their six balls as close to the target ball as possible.
As I said before, I didn’t practice much for boccia ball, and as a result, did not have extremely high expectations for the 40-player tournament.
The tourney was set up just like table tennis, where I had to win my pool to reach the single-elimination round.
As luck would have it, my first opponent in my four-person pool didn’t show up, so I won by forfeit. I was able to revel in my 1-0 pool-play record for about 10 minutes before I had to play my next match, which just so happened to be against my best LP friend, who is from Kansas.
