Claygate now uses a wireless scoring system called BridgePal, which runs on smartphones and tablets.  The implementation team today consists of Gavin Wilson and Carol Wildig, but more volunteers are very welcome.  We will provide as much help and training as each North needs to enter the scores into the handset.

Further information about BridgePal can be found here.

Scoring a Session
Scoring a Bridge session at Claygate

This document was last updated on 17th February 2015.

At the Session

  • Collect the Table Name Slip from each table, before the end of the session.
  • Ensure that you collect a full set of travellers before you leave. (If some players are known to walk off with those from their final hands, ask the Director to make an announcement before the final move of the evening.)

Compiling the Results in ScoreBridge

  • Some scorers like to compile the results as soon as they get home that evening. Others prefer to do the job the next morning. You should aim to have the results published by noon, but don't fret if occasionally you can't achieve this.
  • Make sure you select and set up the movement correctly, in terms of the number of tables, the boards played per round, the number of rounds not played.
  • Check on a couple of travellers that the record of pairs playing against each other corresponds with what ScoreBridge states. (You may need to start all over again with inputting the results if you don't get this precisely right.)

Upload the Results to BridgeWebs

  • This seems to happen as an automatic step in the ScoreBridge program.

Upload the Results to the EBU P2P database

  • Allow a couple of days before submitting the results to the EBU. This will allow members sufficient time to inspect the results for accuracy.

Upload the Results to ECatsBridge

  • Within ScoreBridge you can specify that output files should be produced in the .txt format that ECatsBridge requires.
  • When the SCBA organises SimPairs, they specify that the .txt files should be sent to a particular email address, rather than direct to ECatsBridge.
