Scoring Programs

The following programs are available for event directors and/or scorers to download and use for scoring events.

IMPORTANT NOTE: The scoring programs will NOT be downloaded if you use the Google Chrome browser or the Microsoft Edge browser.  (The download is via the FTP protocol.) The Edge browser download capability is fully disabled.  However, the FTP protocol can be enabled for the Chrome browser.

Instructions for Chrome (once enabled, it remains enabled):

Open Chrome and type “chrome://flags” in the address bar.
  1. Once in the flags area, type “enable-ftp” in the search bar stating “search flags”.
  2. When you see the “Enable support for FTP URLs” option tap where it says “Default”.
  3. Tap “Enable” option.
  4. Hit “Relaunch Now” option at the bottom of the page.

If you use the Edge browser the "identified" solution is to use Microsoft Internet Explorer (not recommended as it is at End-Of-Life and not supported by Microsoft) or use Google Chrome with the solution provided above. (added 14-May-2021)
