We are currently unable to send text (SMS) notifications to capos.

As announced at the Fall Capo meeting, we no longer require that paper scoresheets be filled out and turned in for each match. If your electronic score is complete and correct, there is no need to turn in paper.

The process for logging in to ClaytonBocce.org:
We anticipate that most bocce league members will have a Google or Facebook account. If you do not have one you will need to create one. The alternative would be for the bocce website to have its own userids and passwords, but then you would have to create one of those, so what's to be gained?
Google accounts are simpler than Facebook, so if you just need an account to access the bocce website, we suggest a Google account.
