The Paver Project

Now Taking Reservations

UPDATE

On Thursday, November 15, the CBCA, by a vote of over 90%, approved a commitment (not to exceed 65% or $65,000 based on an estimated project cost of $100,000) to the bocce paver project. The funding is contingent on the Bocce Committee securing pledges from the public of at least 35% (or $35,000 based on an estimated project cost of $100,000).

Take advantage of the discounted prices to reserve your paver before December 31.

2018 Rules Changes

There have been several changes to the Clayton Bocce League Rules of Play for 2018. You may view the 2018 Rules of Play here.

Most of the changes are minor, but one important change is the rule on number of forfeits. Any team that has two or more qualifying match forfeits (see below) in one season will lose their spot the following season. When a team loses their spot, they may request to go on the waitlist.

What counts as a match forfeit? A game in which a team fails to field at least two players by the forfeit time is a game forfeit. The forfeit time is ten minutes after the scheduled start for the first game in a match, and five additional minutes for each game after the first. For example, if a match is scheduled to start at 6:30, the first game forfeit time is 6:40, the second is 6:45, and the third is 6:50. If a team forfeits all games in a match, it is a match forfeit.

What counts as a qualifying match forfeit? A qualifying match forfeit is:

  1. A regular season match forfeit that counts in the standings.
  2. An inter-group practice match forfeit for which the forfeiting team fails to notify the league at least six hours prior to the start of the match.
In other words, an inter-group practice match forfeit will not count against you as long as you notify the league at least six hours before the match time that you do not wish to play the practice match.

2018 Bocce Schedule

The 2018 Bocce calendar is now available. The calendar lists key dates for the Clayton Bocce League and the Ipsen Family Bocce Park, including the 2018 Spring, Summer and Fall League seasons.

While we have made every effort to finalize dates for 2018, there is always the possibility that changes will be necessary due to weather or other unpredictable events.

The calendar may be viewed here.

Logging in to the Clayton Bocce Website

With several planned additions to the bocce website, league capos are being issued login accounts on ClaytonBocce.org. Whether for the upcoming online team signups or the planned online scoring system, it is necessary to secure and control access to functions that modify information on the website.

Website access control systems can be quite complicated: userids, passwords, secret questions, password resets, two-factor authentication and more. For the ClaytonBocce.org website we decided not to include another access control system; instead we will use well known existing systems. If you are issued a ClaytonBocce.org account, you will need to have a Facebook, Google, or Microsoft account, and you will login using your Facebook, Google, or Microsoft userid and password. We did this for two reasons:

  1. These three providers have full-featured, robust, and secure access control systems.
  2. Many persons have an account on one of these three systems. By leveraging their existing account, they can avoid having yet another userid and password to remember.

How it Works

The process for logging in to ClaytonBocce.org:
  1. Click Login in the upper right of this page.
  2. On the login page click one of the three buttons to select the login service you wish to use: Facebook, Google, or Microsoft.
  3. Login on your selected service. (This step may be skipped if you are already logged in to the service.) The first time you login you may be asked to authorize Clayton Bocce to link to your account. After you login you will be returned to the Clayton Bocce website.
  4. You will only need to do this the first time you login. Register your Facebook, Google, or Microsoft account with your Clayton Bocce account. When your ClaytonBocce.org account is set up, you will receive an email with a one-time registration code. Enter your one-time registration code on the registration page and click the Register button. This will create a link between your Facebook, Google, or Microsoft account and your ClaytonBocce.org account.

Notes

  • The ClaytonBocce.org login page has a checkbox labeled Remember Me. If you are using a private computer, you may want to check the Remember Me box on the login page. This will cause your browser to store your login credentials on your computer and automatically log you in when you access the Clayton Bocce website. Note: your login credentials are sensitive, so you must use https for automatic login. (ie. https://ClaytonBocce.org).
  • This website does not access any of the information in your Facebook, Google, or Microsoft account. Your contact list, calendar, friend list, etc. are not visible to this website. Your userid and password are not passed to this website.
  • When you are logged in, Login in the upper right corner will be replaced by your name. Click or hover over your name to open a pop-up menu where you may logout or view and update your account profile.

What If I Do Not have One of the Required Accounts?

We anticipate that most bocce league members will have a Facebook, Google, or Microsoft 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 and Microsoft accounts are simpler than Facebook, so if you just need an account to access the bocce website, we suggest either of these.

  • To create a Google account:
    • Go to the Google home page.
    • Click the Sign in button in the upper right corner.
    • Click Add Account and fill in your information.
  • To create a Microsoft account:
    • Go to the Microsoft home page.
    • Click Sign in in the upper right corner.
    • Click Sign up now and fill in your information.
