A few years ago I joined Oranco Bowmen Archery Club and decided I wanted to lend a hand. They needed some help with score keeping so I volunteered. At the time they were using a Microsoft Access database which worked well but had some limitations and was very time consuming. As a software developer my job is to solve problems like this so I spent a few weekends in the office building our first version of our score keeping software and donated it to the club. It was pretty basic. Add the clubs event calendar, add archers to those events, track their scores and produce a ranking report at the end so we could hand out trophies and post the results to the clubs website. We were pretty happy with the results. We reduced the time it took to input registration and add scores by half and had the printed final results within minutes of getting the last score card. Another advantage was that one person could easily handle scoreing an event with 250 archers or more and still have plenty of time to shoot a few arrows. As I met archers from other clubs I found that the majority of archery clubs where using spread sheets or pen and paper to score their events and few were posting the results to their sites. Making version 1 available to other clubs was one solution but we had been using it for a couple years and in my research I found that there was alot of diversity in our sport and it needed an upgrade so we built ASN.
