Round One for Summer 2018 this week saw a very smooth start to the season.
Here are the ladder position after the first round Individual team sheets pending will be available soon.
The round in SummaryWith many new teams we expected some hiccups but it seems they had just as much fun with no issues.
We even had new teams unassisted able to work it out by them selves. i.e. Sam (Butterfly)and Apple (Keep in Touch)
Nuch Cool (Frozen) Joy (Country Road) are Ken (Crazy Breakers) all new comers who lead 100% and enjoyed their matches. Sean (Hangout) Jay (Darkside) and Reto (The Gents) are veterans breaking in new teams and all reported it was all good fun too.
In the 8 ball competition Tigra was unable to field a team so we a seeking a replacement.
Moderation had to defer on Wednesday after Garry unfortunately broke his leg and his team were short on. Their opponent Pickled Hots shots arranged with Club 15 to play round 6 ahead of schedule.
Well done and welcome to the new season everyone.
FixturesWith matches underway fixtures now appear to be stable so they can soon be printed for venue notice boards. John will do that this by next week once we have a placement for Tigra 8 ball. He will then send them to you. In the meantime a screen print versions is below, based on the live version on the fixtures tab.
SponsorsYou will note on the Fixture we have included Major sponsors on the top banner. This season sponsors have become increasingly important to keep our costs down by allowing them to approach us commercially with product and services. Given this is a key relationship means teams and players also need help us to support them.
Thailand Pool Tables and Sportsman contribute significantly financially and hence show on top. Likewise Club 15 and Shernox Group whose principals contribute time to the league administration.
The later two are basically fillers to encourage more sponsors; albeit we doubt if anyone in the league would want business consulting services and everyone already knows about clubbing.
For ease of reference for each venue adjacent to their fixture row we have also added their logo
Please also note the promotions on our What's On Page, that we started last season is also active. It is designed to be updated by Venues themselves to point to thier FB or web page and add special event they want broadcast to our SSPL our audience and wider associated reach
There is also a Sponsors tab included on the web showing offers.
Scores and Standings Updating
After last season trials for Cerros, it is now fully live.
As our official match scores updater, all results for all teams were all posted on time by 10 AM next morning for Monday night matches, Even the drunken leprechauns managed to get their 2 numbers entered into the screen.
On Wednesday it was even better with all matches posted as they were completed. Some were quite late but they still go them in That is the best ever and it was so smooth. Beat that Monday teams.
Ongoing it now has an option for re-scheduling deferred matches.We are also considering adding a button to include the score-sheet picture upload so it is stored for easy reference.
The ladder standing are now end to end automated with a once only effort by captains to post results.
Web Access on PhonesIn the past the web has been our primary source of information, On desktops and wide screens it is fine but hard to read on phones.
A Phone Menu tab is now added and sized size to fit a phone screen. It includes all relevant information .
It is suggested to add it to your home screen for ease of access.
We will then refine this based on your feedback through the season.
Web ManagementFor the IT gurus out there we are more than willing to accept your help to keep this all simple and extensible.
In the meantime we do have some limitations with our criteria to use only free software. But it seems to work for us albeit it drill down and security is very intense in spreadsheets. Let Jay Reto or Gordon know if you can help.
Here is a Picture of all the web tabs
