There are about 300 recesses on one golf ball, and thanks to them, the ball flies three times farther than a smooth one. ... Balls of the same size...

Electronic scorekeeping in trouble at YNC and SNC

Electronic scorekeeping in trouble at YNC and SNC

Electronic scorekeeping is replacing traditional paper scorekeeping at international major tournaments. But not without some trouble...

The Finnish scorekeeping system MRS (Minigolf Results Service) survived honourably the first day of Seniors Nations Cup in Lamego, Portugal. With the usual temporary trouble, and hectic moments behind the admin desk.

The most interesting moment in Lamego today was when the whole town of Lamego lost electricity for an hour. The results service continued running without problems, however, as all scorekeeping servers were laptop computers, with a battery that can survive an hour or two of electricity blackouts. The electricity blackout did not cause any breaks in the results service at the minigolf course or at the tournament website.

The Swedish iPod scorekeeping system had more critical troubles at Youth Nations Cup in Waldshut, Germany. The data router, which was supposed to handle the wireless traffic of score data, got broken, and a replacement router did not function either.

So the first day of Youth Nations Cup was played with traditional paper scorekeeping. The results were published on the Internet after each group finished a round and handed the scorecard to tournament office.

As a comforting thought, we can remember the final match of Soccer European Championships 2008, whose live television broadcasts suffered blackouts due to a thunderstorm. Sometimes even money cannot buy 100% reliable data connections.

Note: The team results from Lamego are shown on a page that includes two teams only, and then it shows more teams when the page refreshes every 30 seconds (or something).

(This system is designed for public scoreboard screens at the tournament site. The Internet version should show all teams on the same page, without rotating pages. Possibly the administrators have put a wrong setting somewhere.)
