Turns out we were missing #86 from the electronic system and #82 from the manual system so either way we lost 80 points.

Not as bad as Eddie's team which was marked down to Zero because they checked the print out from the Digital signed off and went home, only to find the Admin team did not enter their manual results into the computer hence a zero score. And it is now Eddie's fault!

Seriously WARA needs to look itself and what the purpose of the admin is. IMO it should be to try ensure the correct result is posted and if there are screw ups and it is obvious that the team has been to the control then make the adjustment.

A sense of Fair Play should be the over riding principle

Yeah I did notice that and Gerard mentioned it to me when I emailed him.

I don't think it's very good procedure if you are given the printout from the electronic system to check but then the manual one is used. What was the point of checking?

All very good points

I might bring it up at the AGM this Friday just to create some debate.

Shame I won't be at the AGM - two in one weekend is just too much excitement

Must be hard to go to an AGM if you're not receiving an award.
