To enable any errors to be corrected or results to be checked it is important that each pair leaves a scorecard at the end of play on every evening. The committee has agreed that should it be necessary to check results and a vital scorecard is missing, any benefit of the doubt will be given to the pair who submitted a scorecard. Additionally, a penalty may be imposed on the offending pair by the scorer.
