Report from the combined planning groups 
FeedBack ( 0) A meeting was held on Sept 5 during which information was presented covering all three planning groups. This posting reports on the progress and findings, and includes an update as recent as hours before publishing this report.

(Invitations were sent to all members of the Advisory Group, comprising everyone who self-rated as "Proficient" or "Intermediate", in other words, everyone on the Friends of Bocce list who have substantial experience playing Bocce. Three members of this Advisory Group volunteered to lead three planning groups; Organization, Game Rules, and Scheduling. About 10 members or the Advisory Group populate those three groups.)

Ken presented a case (three slides shown) wherein all three play formats being considered can co-exist in a common scheduling system for sharing the four courts. Moreover, it appears four courts will serve us well for a large Bocce club that is anticipated. Click the title of this item to open the PDF file of the slides. You'll see that fictitious names for the three formats were used to avoid confusion that is created using the terms "league" and "tournament". People have different backgrounds playing their respective formats and what those words mean to them. Very little text is presented on the slides, but it will become apparent how the formats with a fixed 2-hour play duration and a format not constrained by time but rather complete when the match complete co-exist.

There was agreement with the findings, and therefore the proposal to schedule courts in accordance with the proposed system is accepted. With that foundation, the next step is to conduct a structured survey to determine the interests and preferences of all Friends of Bocce that will lead to a good "coming out" allocation of days/times/courts to the three formats.

Ellyn provided an update as to arranging a meeting with Mike Taylor (SBR GM), Tim Fudge (Facilities) and Dani Herbert (assistant to the GM). She reviewed the questions and issues pertaining to the interface between the HOA and the Bocce club. Today, she got confirmation that Mike and Dani will be meeting (not heard from Tim) with Ellyn and Roger representing the Organization planning group on September 18. Kudos to Ellyn for calling for the meeting and successfully getting commitment in the relative near term.

Thanks to everyone who vigorously presented the case for the three formats, leading us to support all formats in an extremely flexible way. Fun and Fairness were on display with these proceedings!

Advisory Board Meeting Minutes 
FeedBack ( 0) YEAH!!! We had our first Bocce Club Advisory Meeting and had a group of experienced and knowledgeable people that brought with them many great questions and suggestions to get our New Club underway.

FAIR and FUN will be the first criteria in all decisions in the development of our Club.

Here are some of the questions that came up in the meeting:

Are bylaws necessary?
Should we collect dues for equipment need?
Who pays for the Bocce Balls, the HOA or the membership?
Do we have to file as a non-profit organization?
Will there be Leagues?
What should our organizational structure be?
Should we schedule 1 or 2 hours per game play?
Will there be 4 or 8 people per team?
Will there be open time scheduled?
What is the surface of the courts?
Who will maintain the courts?
Will there be lights?
Will the membership be required to sign a waiver?
Will we have to sign an amenities agreement or have liability insurance?
Will we join the ABA (American Bocce Association)?
Will the courts comply with Handicap Laws?

We had several individuals who played Bocce at different communities who shared their experiences with the group. It gave us great insight into what will work for all people in the Club. This discussion led to forming three groups:

GAME RULES GROUP:

Pattie and Lloyd De Martini
Brian and Laurie Crowe
Larry Sandoval
Bob Townsend

ORGANIZATIONAL GROUP:

Roger Bailey
Gerri Koen
Ellyn Biggs

SCHEDULING GROUP:

Ken Gorman
Larry Burchfield
Craig George

Each group will meet on their own to discuss each topic assigned to them and the next Club meeting will be scheduled in two weeks.

FOR WEBSITE PUBLISHERS
You can publish this feed in two ways. (1) Simply by installing a link to this feed on your website, or (2) by syndicating (embedding) a portion of the the actual feed content on your website.


(1) Linking to This NewsPage

The following link for this NewsPage can be used to form an anchor text link for your website:

http://www.enfeedia.com/bocce/advisory.php

Alternatively, you can install an RSS NewsPage icon enfeedia news feed reader on your website using this link:

<a href="http://www.enfeedia.com/see/bocce/advisory.php"><img src="http://www.enfeedia.com/enfeedia_01.gif" border="0"></a>


(2) Syndicating This Feed Using Enfeedia's 'Super Simple Syndication'

Syndication of RSS feeds simply means that the feed content or portion thereof is embedded on one or more websites (RSS = Really Simple Syndication).

If your website server supports PHP -- and virtually all of them do -- you can display the contents of this feed directly on your website. You select how many of the most recent items and the length of the items to display.

You implement this by simply inserting either of the two following PHP code snippets on your website in a region where you've specified php code to be located. The first arranges items in a vertical column whereas the second in a horizontal row. (Be sure to take into account your webpage width when using the row orientation).

Both snippets provide a basic presentation of the most recent three items showing a maximum of approximately 300 characters, inheriting colors and style from the page syndicating the feed. You can change the number of items displayed by changing the NI parameter in the snippet. Similarly, you can change the length of items displayed by changing the LI parameter.

Vertical Presentation of Items:

file_get_contents('http://www.enfeedia.com/SOS.php?T=BB&P=col&AN=bocce&FN=advisory&NI=3&LI=300');

Horizontal Presentation of Items:

file_get_contents('http://www.enfeedia.com/SOS.php?T=BB&P=row&AN=bocce&FN=advisory&NI=3&LI=300');

The above snippets use Enfeedia's "Super Simple Syndication" eliminating the need to upload any scripts to syndicate feeds. You can explore syndication methods by going to the Enfeedia home page and selecting the "Promote/Syndicate" menu item. You will learn how to fully customize the presentation of the feed on your website. For this feed, use account name bocce and then select feed advisory.
