The club is in need of people who would like to learn how to score using our scoring program JavaScore. One of the most critical members of the race committee is the person who sets up races to be scored, gathers the results electronically, double checks the results for inconsistencies, and posts the results for all to view. This is a different role than the recorders who capture the live finishes, although some people do both. Learning how to score gives you an appreciation for how our sport works and is a very active part of the race committee.
The first step is to get a list of people interested in learning this skill. The second step is to hold training sessions to teach people how to score. The goal is to build a contingent of members who understand scoring so that they may participate in this role for future series races and for larger club events. And remember volunteering as a scorer for race committee helps fulfill your volunteer obligations to the club.
All you need is a general understanding of how to use a computer. If you or anyone you know would be a good fit and wants to participate on a race committee in this fashion, please let me know. The training is open to anyone ranging from computer savvy juniors to computer familiar seniors. Offshore or one-design.
