Bocce in Conshy

So, I got the following request from a reader:

I would like to see some information about the re-birth of bocce in Conshohocken. Many years ago during my grandfathers youth it was a prominent weekend ritual for many men to go to the CBC or SS Cosmos and Damian bocce courts (now Jack Francis catering building) and spend the day at the courts. I am not sure when it died off but for decades there was nothing to the point where the CBC (Conshohocken Bocce Club) didn’t even have a bocce court on its property.
That all changed around 2006 when the CBC took a chance and invested in bringing back its core sport and built two courts. In short order the overwhelming response and participation forced the league to expand to six nights of matches and has a league membership of over 400 with a waiting list of more teams who want to join but there is currently no space to put them.
