|These instructions are principally to SASL managers or any person responsible for reporting the score of an SASL game.|
|1) First and foremost, please review the SASL Rules & By-Laws on reporting scores. Please read ALL of rule C.17.|
Basically, BOTH teams must report the score or postponement by absolutely
no later than 6:00 PM on the Sunday of your game.
This guarantees you will not lose points for tardiness (being late).
DON'T FORGET TO REPORT!
|3) If you show up for your game and is not played or completed for
any reason, if it was postponed, abandoned or cancelled because either the referee or the town deemed the field
unplayable, or your opponents failed to show up, etc., you must STILL send a match report indicating all the facts. You do not have to
report if your game was postponed any time before the day of the game and is shown as postponed on the SASL Schedule.
REPORT GAMES THAT ARE POSTPONED, ABANDONED OR CANCELLED ON THE DAY OF THE GAME!
You risk losing points for tardiness if you report after 6:00 PM and after I have already uploaded all the scores
and standings to the SASL Website, or if you fail to report at all.
REPORT BEFORE 6:00 PM!
We allow you up to two late or non-score reports to cover times when there is a miscommunication in who is reporting,
or if your email server is down (this happens more than you would think) and genuine excuses like that. But, on
the third occasion and every occasion thereafter your team will be deducted one point for each late score report.
DON'T RISK LOSING HARD-EARNED POINTS AND INCUR THE WRATH OF YOUR PLAYERS!
OF YOUR EMAIL
SASL SCORE REPORT
Remember at the league meetings and I asked you to repeat it? Well say it six times now! It is a good way to burn it into your memory.
SALS SCORING REPORTING is right out! No bad spelling! No changing of the words!
Please do not put the score into the subject of your email!
Please do not reply to one of my other emails with the score without changing the subject!
Please do not reply to this email with the score without changing the subject!
The reason for this is that I have a filter set up in Gmail so that I can collect them all in one place, which makes it easier and more efficient to process them all.
If you send with the correct subject you will receive an auto response thanking you. This way you can be certain that I received it.
If you send it with another subject, or none at all (and this happens a lot...), I may not see your email or it may end up in my spam folder. Basically, if I don't see your report, you will be charged with a "score not reported" (SNR) in the scores and standings.
2) HOME TEAM FIRST!
For example, your score report should read something like:
Preferably: Home Team 3, Away Team 0
Also OK: Home Team 3-0 Away Team
If you do it backwards you will screw me all up because I am expecting home team first.
3) IDENTIFY YOURSELF
your TEAM (exact full name, not just, for example, Stamford or Greenwich, but Stamford United or Greenwich Pumas)
your LEAGUE (Over-30, Masters or Over-49)
your DIVISION (First, Second, Third and East or West if that is your case)
your NAME (i.e., Fred Smith)
your ROLE (manager, assistant manager, captain, manager's wife, player, tea boy, etc.)
Bear in mind some clubs have multiple teams who play in different leagues and/or divisions, so don't confuse me!
Steps 1, 2 and 3 are self-explanatory. As I wrote earlier, it is extremely simple. please don't screw it up!
Note that I will not reply or confirm receipt, I simply
will not have time (I should be getting as many as 70+ emailed score reports), Sunday nights are busy enough with
updating multiple Web pages as it is. Apologies for that!
