With the recent advances in the HEXTA online database the NSDRA was confident they could run the event without manual scorecards.

Shot results were uploaded automatically in real time and displayed on the homepage of the HEXTA database. HEX Systems first trialled real-time upload in 2011 at the Hornsby Rifle Range, and now all users of HEXTA targets can connect their systems to the internet and their results will be uploaded in real time.

Adrian Bonnani, a member of Hornsby RSL Rifle Club and the statistician for the event, said the system performed flawlessly. He sees many advantages in running without scorecards.

“I believe that the lack of a scorecard improves the accuracy of results. We often find mistakes in manual scorecards, and there were no mistakes today” Adrian said.

“The scorer has to be more focused on what the shooter is doing. And both scorer and shooter have to keep a closer eye on the score for each shot. They can fix any problems immediately.”

Adrian said that because there is no data entry it eliminates human errors in transcribing the results to the stats system.
