Kent Interclub – F5J at Gravesend 18 April – Latest Update

The weather looks good for Sunday, just a shade cooler than ideal.  We have a reasonable number of flyers, so looking forward to a good competition.

In respect to scoring on the day, we will use Gliderscore and will have QR codes for each competitor to use.  However, for this competition, we will trial a simpler method. 
By clicking on the link below, you will see a list of all the competitors – Click on your name and your Gliderscore scoring sheet will appear for you to use on Sunday.

Please feel free to play - Can I encourage you all to have a play with this simpler system?  On your phone, find this page and click on the link.  Once the GliderScore scoring page appears,  you can then bookmark the page for use on Sunday.  You can also play with entering the scores into the system before the final Scoring database being reset at 18:00 on Saturday.

See you all Sunday.
