Movements of files and boards for each Bridge session|
Home - Other Director materials
The following outlines the flow of files and boards for each session. It is also shown on the diagram below.
1. BOS OPERATOR
The action starts with the BOS Operator who checks (and occasionally tweaks) the computer generated deals, and then produces two files :
The BOS Operator emails the PDF files to all Dealers, and the PBN files to all Scorers.
Month (2 digits) Day (2 digits) Weekday (3 letters)
For example : 0715sat (Saturday July 15)
This way any Dealer or Scorer can fill in for someone else if required without having to ask around for the appropriate file.
All files will be named :
The Dealer will hand deal all deals for a session and give them to the Director in charge of that session.
The Director runs the session as normal.
At the end the Director collects the boards and hand them back to the Dealer and hands the Travelers to the Scorer for that session.
The Director also informs the Scorer what movement was used for the session and any specifics (like arrow switch round 4, Rover pair 6NS, one round not played, etc.) which may have occurred.
The Scorer produces the results with ScoreBridge and includes the PBN file (showing the deals above each displayed traveler) and the Handicap file.
(For the time being I will update the Handicap file every 2-3 months or so while in Spain, until one of the more experienced scorers takes over this task.)
5. WEB MASTER
The Scorer emails the results HTM file to the Web Master who will make any formatting adjustments as required and post the file on the web site.
