About News Feeds and How to Use Them

News Feeds are used to communicate a stream of information as items are posted from time to time. The Bocce Club feeds appear on the site in the right column (on large screen computers) and midway down the single column on small screen devices (mobile phones, tablets).

The act of posting itmes here also causes email alerts to be issued to you if you register for them. The current feeds are listed below; clicking one starts the registration process for that feed alert. A form will be presented by the alert email service "Blogtrottr" under the heading "Getting Started" where you simply enter your email address. Then click the "Feed Me" button to the right to cause an email to be sent to you to confirm your email address. Click the link in that email to complete the registration process.

You will need to register for each feed separately, giving you the flexibility to choose the topics you want to follow in near-real time.
