Did you read the title of your original post? The one where you said the scoring system sucks?

I guess a better title would have been that the scoring system "reporting" sucks.  But if the official scoring program(s) do not have the option of showing penalties, as Happy Jack mentioned, then I suppose there really isn't anything to be done short of the program authors adding it.

It seems to me that everyone has had their say on this topic. 

It is important to note that the WBAS Committee has NO say over how the scoring programs are written. Either Practiscore or the SASS program written by CD Tom.  They decide whether Misses and "P's are shown on the report. So if that is the OP's issue we cannot help you. You will need to take that up with the program authors.

I will leave this open for a short time if there is anything useful added.  If not I may close this topic.

What exactly is the point you’re trying to get across? Like I said, you started out attacking the scoring method.
You should read my first post where I said I don't have a problem with the "Method" I have a problem with the info the final report gives.

But really I can give my shooters a real score sheet until I don't have a device ACES runs on anymore. And I am really done. Really.



Here is an example of what I was hoping we could have in the future. I can see now that won't happen.

I really think that at this point I would be wasting my time trying to get a point across that may help recruit new WB shooter so what I am getting here is the upcoming scoring systems (Practiscore) will just show numbers that mean nothing to the new shooters and that the powers that be or stuck in their way and will not change something that would be so simple to do. I am done Thank you!

Flash,
That is a red herring argument. USPSA uses PractiScore and a similar scoring system. It's not causing problems for them. In fact the local USPSA club that started last year at Founders Ranch ended the year with 20 to 30 shooters twice a month. Looks like they'll have even more for this season. No problems with the scoring system there.
SASS on the cowboy side is the only major shooting sport that uses total time. Everyone else uses something like Stage Points. Shooting sports are growing. Your argument is simply not true.

What exactly is the point you’re trying to get across? Like I said, you started out attacking the scoring method. Then, match directors for not showing performances. Go look at the scores from EOT the last few years in the side match called cowboy. Wild Bunch is the main match. It only shows the times. Doesn’t show penalties. Same with Winter Range. Both quite successful matches.
Again, what exactly is the point?
The Rules Committee over the last few years has made lots of changes listening to what shooters have spoken about. What is it that would be so simple to change?

As to the scoring methods, if you want to see penalties go to the match director and ask. Usually, it is very simple for them to print that for you or email it to you.
And here we see one reason that this sport isn't growing. A simple thing that would let shooters see more about how the shooters perform in a match and are unwilling to do it. We had some new shooters at out last WB match. They don't see how what they did reflected on the score sheet. But again this is just my opinion.
Why did you hide the scores from them? If they want to see how they did, show them!
What exactly are you trying to get to here? One post, you’re complaining about the scoring system. In another, it’s match directors not show the minutiae of shooter’s performance. Then, you say your the match director not showing shoote’s scores.
And for most of us, it’s not all about winning or who won but the is a competition. Someone is going to be first and someone will be last. Of course, we could go like Cowboy is going. A category for everyone and a participation trophy for everyone who shows up. In that case, we may as well throw out the timer and the shooting and just give out the trophies at registration.

You know if I were not the guy that runs the shoots at my club I wouldn't even be bothering to call attention to this. I can deal with a score sheet that just says who won. That is all most people want to know right?

Trying to get new Wild Bunch shooters in our matches is hard enough but add in the fact that the new guys that are thinking about shooting see a score sheet that looks like a tax return just seem stupid to me. Just my opinion again.
