Hi...I noticed that in our stats for Earlybird, our final game (we won against Carbondale) is missing. As this may have an impact on PACE qualifying, can you enter the result of that game?

The score sheet got lost. The hope is that Mrs. Lorinskas, the Carbondale coach, was keeping score and we can reconstruct from there.

"mostly" being a key word here as Barrington A's final match vs. Carbondale had no scoresheet submitted.

Hi everyone -- apologies for a delay that is entirely my fault, but a discussion forum for RAFT is now available. You can ask to join by selecting it on the "usergroups" section of your control panel.
