Remember that feeling when the event organiser asked you to take charge of the SI? Nine of our members put their hands up and joined Andy Rimes in a ‘revision’ session at COACH on Thursday (27th)

Andy and Rosie Wych had set up several ‘stations’ for a hands-on session taking them through the SI AutoDownload software used at events and then into the system of ‘crossover’ connections and DOS commands to enable a network of machines to ‘talk’ to each other.

We were introduced to the new version of AutoDownload that we will have to adopt in the near future and the ‘contactless dibbers’ that QO have purchased for use at selected events this year.

Many thanks to Andy (and Sport England) for providing the course. Hopefully he will have a follow-up session next term after we have all had some practical experience!

Please come along to the next club night on Thursday, when we will be preparing for and discussing the Come and Try It on the Saturday following.
