The wet spring continues to wreak havoc with the schedule. We do not have the same flexibility we have built in to the schedule in past years due to the paver project, which will shut the courts down the month of July. One way or another the season must end on June 30 because the grounds will start to be ripped up the next day.
The rainouts this weekend, which may continue into next week, will mean triple header Saturdays (9:30 a.m., 1:30 p.m., 6:30 p.m.) to reduce the backlog. We know this poses inconveniences due primarily to youth sports but Saturdays are the only days we have to get the season in.
We realize that Saturday matches may mean more forfeits and that is unfortunate. Normally, two forfeits in one season results in a team losing its spot the following year. Due to the unusual circumstances, we are making an exception to this rule: any team that forfeits a Saturday match will not have it counted against them if the capo notifies the league at least six hours prior to the match of their intention to forfeit. Forfeit notifications may be submitted by sending an email to the league.
We have rejected an option to get rid of the backlog by shortening the season. Teams pay $400 to play ten matches and ten matches they will get. Shortening the season would also introduce inequity into the schedule, with some teams playing a more difficult schedule than others.
Thank you all for your consideration and patience as we work though things we can’t control.

The 2019 Bocce calendar is now available. The calendar lists key dates for the Clayton Bocce League and the Ipsen Family Bocce Park, including the 2019 Spring, Summer and Fall League seasons.
We have have reserved all of July and part of August for the installation of pavers at the courts. Because of this, the Spring League will start earlier than usual (March 10) and the Summer League will start later than usual (August 11). Spring League signups start on January 14.
While we have made every effort to finalize dates for 2019, there is always the possibility that changes will be necessary due to weather or other unpredictable events.
The calendar may be viewed here.
There are no changes to league rules for 2019. You may view the current rules here.

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:
The process for logging in to ClaytonBocce.org:
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.
