The Muhlitner Scoring Incident
If you followed this thread
you know that most of us do not fill out any paper work when we tower judge and only some of us do so when we boat judge. I bring this all to light because the very first time I was ever the chief judge we had a bit of an issue.
Rob Muhlitner ran something at 38 off but somehow his score got into the computer as something at 35 off. For Rob the error was not consequential but it was still wrong. The chief scorer was @rico
and he had a written record of the correct score and was able to correct the score for the standings list.
The lesson from this error is that it is very easy to make an error and the more written backup we have the better. Because most of us do not take notes we do not have any backup. Perhaps all of us that judge an should think about filling out the paperwork next time we judge.
Richelle “The RuleBook” Muhlitner also makes a good point when she asks “what happens of the scoring computer crashes?”
Not sure how to deal with a long link?
