GABMC Registration & Scoring System
In the shared folder linked below is a universal version of the registration and scoring docs that was used at the NACBMA 2018 Great American Beard & Moustache Championship and other regional competitions since. It’s available free of charge to any club that would like to use it.
There are templates for judges' scoring sheets and Google Sheets for signing up competitors and auto-calculating their scores and places, based on your number of judges. Easily customize them with your event and category names for the big day.
These Google docs are meant to make it easier for your club to register and tally scores for each competitor at your comp. It’s paper where it counts and online for the rest, providing simultaneous live updates to everyone with access.
The basic layout was based off of the Microsoft Excel result sheets from the 2015 Worlds in Leogang, Austria. This version was built out in Google Sheets by the RVA Beard League for internal club use in 2016 (through the present day) and has been used at comps around the country since the middle of last year, including for registration and scoring at the 2018 Great American BMC. With each comp, updates and revisions have been made to simplify things as much as possible.
The intent is to have the MC(s) read the contestant info off the left half of the category tab from their phone or tablet. The right half for each competitor lists their scores that the scorekeeper enters from the paper sheets. In our experience, having a hard copy for the judges is easier for them to write comments and notes about each competitor and, more importantly, to have a record to double-check scores if need be.
Since each club has it’s own selection of categories, we’ve kept this fairly generic. No one’s trying to tell you which categories to have. Most of the setup beforehand will be in typing the names of the categories in the tabs.
