The Ridgefield8 thanks our gracious sponsors for helping to turn a small game amongst friends into the premiere sporting event of the summer.

The Coleman company is sponsoring our outdoor gear for the event. Neither the force of the wind or the slash of the rain will stop us in our quest for bocce immortality!
