Test Drive

If you just want to try some of the facilities, without commencing an official trial, then this page will help you gain a glimpse of what things look like.

We have set up a sample web site, Castalia Bridge Club, which is created from a web site template, to allow you to experiment with system facilities and see for yourself how easy or difficult it is to use. It demonstrates most of available features.

Uploading Results

Before embarking on uploading results with any of the scoring programs, please visit manual pages, and in particular the pages that explain how to use your scoring program to produce result files that can be uploaded.

ACBLscore users

You can try to upload results using web admin interface. This is a password protected page to prevent unauthorized users to change your club data. The user name to use is vito and the password is corleone. Just go to the admin interface page, then select the option from the menu on the left to go to the page from which you can upload the results. ACBLscore users who have wireless scoring system like Bridgemates can also upload BWS files that go with the score.

ASE 8+, Compscore and Compass users

You will need to download and install a special program for uploading results called ShipResults. Read the brief manual page and download the program from the installation page.

At the beginning of the installation, you will be asked to provide an activation code. For Castalia bridge club, this code is:
