|Scoring a Bridge session at Claygate
This document was last updated on 17th February 2015.
- 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.)
- 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.)
- This seems to happen as an automatic step in the ScoreBridge program.
- Allow a couple of days before submitting the results to the EBU. This will allow members sufficient time to inspect the results for accuracy.
- 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.
