I was match secretary at my curling club and decided to implement an online databas e system rather than use a traditional excel spreadsheet.
The list of matches are entered at the start of season and scores as each match progresses. Results are typically enterred into the system by the winning skip. League tables are then automatically produced and club members can quickly see the positions in the league.
The Curling Scores database could well be used by any club or ice rink that is involved in Curling, just register and use the system for free.
Normally the skips enter the results shortly after a match though a match secretary can be tasked with putting in the scores. The league tables are automatically updated.
Each club can setup up the leagues they have, providing the name of the league and how it is to be scored. Members for each game can be entered into the system using the MyClubMembers.net online system. Some sample screen shots are given below.
Boreland Curling club, Fife in Scotland, results have been input since season 2009-2010.
Email reminders are sent out to members 7 days and 1 day prior to a match. This informs the members who are in their rink (to help arrange travel), very useful as it informs rink members if there are any substitutions. An example email is shown below
