Round 5 Draw (v2) Updated @ Monday 10am
Toowoomba Grammar has had to forfeit it’s senior matches, so the draw has had to change.
Mens A grade, and A Reserve have had several changes, so you will need to check the draw carefully.
Please note that we have had to schedule a Men’s A Reserve match in the Green gym – which will involve a duty team as well, so please check the draw carefully. I know the roof in the Green gym is a bit low for a lot of the players in this division, but I didn’t see any viable alternatives for 1 match. CHSHS 12 – you have the duty in there after your game.
I have done up the draw for the rest of the season, managing to balance duty matches and byes pretty evenly across all of the divisions. They will be put up on the website this week.
Speaking of the website, I am expecting to make some updates this week – thanks for your patience with this process. Electronic scoring, results and standings as well as invoicing is all being worked on, so it’s not a simple job.
During the first few weeks of the season we had some issues with duty teams, particularly having to chase teams to find someone to run the warm up according to the protocol, which is available on every score bench.
A lot of teams have to organise buses and taxi’s to pick them up at the end of their games, so it is important that we not only keep to time, but we make the most of that time as well – there is only an hour for the warm up and game time. At the moment teams are not making very good use of the warm up period as players are not ready to go when the previous match is finished.
While we don’t need the whole team to be available for the warm up, we do need at least one person to run the warm up – starting from the end of the last match.
We would appreciate it if you could all make an extra effort to to make sure someone is running the protocol correctly. It would be great if we didn’t have to remind anyone this week!
Round 2 (v2) Draw updated Sunday night.
Another tough weekend, slowly adding more functionality to the new web site.
You can now Manage your teams by going through Select Teams, and Taking Ownership of those teams you are in charge of. Please add in your players as soon as possible – it will make the electronic coring work much easier. There were some issues with logging in to the website in order to enter your registration details, but I’m hoping we have fixed most issues – although I think safari users on Apple hardware is still having issues – Chrome seems to work on those machines though. Everyone needs to sign up and enter their registration details as soon as possible.
If someone else has taken ownership of your team, you can request Ownership – which will notify me and I will look into it manually. Next season, all of the teams will be nominated beforehand so you will automatically have ownership of the teams you nominate.
I would recommend that one person from each school take Ownership of their teams, and then add your coaches in as managers – or however you would like to do it. The Teams you select will appear by default when you log in, but for now it is a large list to select from. That will change soon.
I am still planning to use electronic scoring, but as I haven’t had any time to test it – this week we are going to have both paper scoring an electronic. If you have the later games and there are no tablets to score on – that will mean things have not gone well. We will be trying not to hold up the game if there is a problem with the tablets. The score sheet will be the important part to keep correct, the tablet can be behind, and we will enter the final correct score later.
If you haven’t checked out the website recently, go have a look – it’s looking pretty good… although I may be a touch biased.
