To begin, Andy has done his homework, and anything that can be done has been done in preparation. The DZ is set up very nicely, with a small collection of mobile office buildings and a large banquet/DZTV tent placed across the taxiway from the manifest. The taxiway has been closed and a pair of buses will be moving jumpers from the usual boarding area to the end of the runway. Andy's latest and greatest addition to the DZ is the tiki bar in front of the restaurant, a very cool place despite the butt-killing toadstool chairs.
Andy was also very gracious in supplying OmniSkore with not one but TWO phone lines for our Internet coverage. I have one phone line just for pumping the DZTV webcam up, and the second for all other files. Among those "other files" is a newly updated feature that we haven't used in a while: scoring details for each team's jump. If you go the one of the results pages, you will find an index of teams in the form of a drop-down list in the upper right corner. Select a team number and it will take you to that team's page, with a photo of the team and the team member names. At the bottom of each team page you will find a link to that team's scoring summary; click on that link and you will see how that team has been scored by each judge. This page is generated by the OmniSkore processor and uploaded automatically in real time; you can see the team's score before they do!
