The Score Reporter debacle is growing worse. From entire tournaments basically evaporating from online existence to teams wondering about whether or not they had a game at major college tournaments this past weekend, the lack of available online tournament management is frustrating everyone.
We just got an email from Torre Hargett, the tournament director of Deep Freeze, a large high school tournament in Chattanooga, Tennessee. After a long chain of emails with USAU Membership and Sport Development Manager Ryan Gorman, Hargett sent this email, venting some frustration that he was struggling to get Deep Freeze properly working on Scorereport.net:
[quote]Thank you for the replies. They are frustrating, but appreciated.
I am running a tournament this weekend and had planned on using scores.usaultimate.org to distribute scores/schedules & other valuable information to all the teams involved. Should I be making other plans since it appears ScoreReport.Net is only marginally functional???[/quote]
[quote]If I were in your shoes, I would figure out another method to share schedules with your teams at this point. I absolutely understand that is not ideal, but it’s probably going to cause you significantly less frustration than to try dealing with the new ScoreReport.net system that is still being set up. We have a call with the programmer today to hopefully get some more answers and I’m sure it won’t be long before everything is back up and running again. I appreciate your patience and willingness to be flexible.[/quote]
With the Stanford Invite and other major Spring events right around the corner, let’s really hope that that is true and things will be back to full capacity shortly. Pretty rough timing for a major switch over in technology.
