eScoring is a way in which a competition pilot or their helper can use a smartphone to upload their score to a cloud server after each flight.
For a longer introduction, have a look at the eScoring explainer escoring_explainer.pdf
eScoring is attracting particular attention during the pandemic, as a way to preserve social distancing and minimise risk from handling score cards – no need to approach the CD or pass bits of paper to enter scores.
For this reason, BARCS is launching a new Covid and eScoring forum – check it out and post your experiences or questions there.
Escoring is a part of the splendid GliderScore software, developed by Gerry Carter in Australia and used widely in the UK and all over the world. To honour Gerry’s achievement, BARCS was very pleased to award him at its Dec 2020 AGM the prestigious Eppler Trophy.
