General Procedures When? Report to Score Room by 9:00 Leave time for Breakfast and Sign in before this We’ll be working until about 5:30 (we hope!) Access to the room is limited Not a place for visiting or hanging out All paperwork is logged in and out of the room Refer anything unusual to the room leaders This allows everyone else to continue processing the “normal” scores, keeping the flow going Add to the bottom, take from the top This keeps paperwork flowing in time order
Primary Mission The primary Mission of a DI Score Room is to provide the announcer at the conclusion of a tournament with an accurate list of place finishes for the teams that competed at that tournament. Help keep the tournament running smoothly Get everyone home at a reasonable hour Goal: All scores Complete 1 hr before the award ceremony Accuracy Efficiency Timeliness
Score Room Mission Accuracy is foremost. Procedures result in all scoring operations being done twice by independent people. These two people must agree on the resulting computation. If in doubt ask your CM or send back to appraiser to correct Never erase a score Initial ALL changes
Score Room Mission Efficiency is defined as computing the final scores by the time that the Tournament Director expects them to be done. Typically final scores are available about an hour or less after the last team performance. Efficiency is secondary to Accuracy.
Score Room Mission Timeliness Process paperwork ASAP Don’t Hold on to Packets! Process Packets in order (first in first out) Process and move on to the next step, then file! Have everything completed well before the scheduled awards ceremony
