Sconefest 8 was a long time in the making. Burnout on the part of the president nearly marked the end of Sconefest. But when people started unjustly accusing the president's girlfriend of being the Yoko Ono of Sconefest, he reacted to defend her honor and on May 10, 2003, Sconefest returned with a vengeance. The traditional backyard of Sconefest was in repair so Sconefest 8 moved to the front yard and to inside. The highly popular lawn sport bocce was added for the first time and the t-shirts have been called the best ever. Roughly 80 people attended and a good time was had by all.
