I apologize for not getting the scores up earlier or getting them in the paper this week. I had a hard drive failure on the data drive on my computer and it took longer than anticipated to recover everything. Everything is now working and the scores and scoring sheets are done. The new standings are on the standings page. We had another good week of shooting with many high scores for teams and individuals alike. Congratulations to last weeks high guns: Jon Counsell 48, Erika Ehlers 46, Ryan Aumann 46, Rich Schroeder 46, Jim Goodbrand 46, and Rick Mews 46.
For anyone who hadn’t made it out this weekend the chicken shoot was a big success with shooting lasting all day. After shooting we had our Rock the Range event with two bands that both did an excellent job. It was a great success. We also had a great fireworks show between performances, it may have been the best one we have had yet and everyone there seemed pleased. We also raffled off our yearly cash prizes. Congratulations to all the winners.
See everyone Thursday
Trying furiously to solve the world's problems
Sorry that there have not been any scoring updates on the site for the first night of league. I updated my computer this winter and in the process updated the Ruby runtime library that my scoring program code is based on. I then proceeded to make the necessary changes to make my program work properly. Everything was perfect, there will be new features I can implement with the updated Ruby runtime and I could simplify some spots of my 4500 lines of code, or so I thought. While the program was technically working and did a fine job at keeping track of members and the league scoring aspect, I seemed to have forgotten to check the compatibility of the reporting capabilities with the new runtime environment. That didn’t work out so well. Some libraries I was dependent upon are incompatible with Ruby 1.9.3 and there are no plans to make them. Well to wind this up without writing a book, I am working as fast as possible to update my code base to fix all the reporting problems. I sure hope to have a fix before Thursday night league, if not then I will have shooting yards figured by hand and posted at the club. This is also why the league results are not posted on the site, my code does most of this work for me. Instead of spending time and effort to get the site updated I am spending my time on the code to get it working so all will go smoothly from here on out. I you need to see the results before Thursday pick up a copy of the TRG as they should be in there. Thanks for everyone’s patients.
