  Tips on using this site

Be careful about using the Print button displayed on most pages ... the printed output may be radically different than what you are looking at on the screen.

Welcome to our new site. The features of this new location include online results that dig deeper into a game than where the results used to be displayed. Please keep the following in mind as you use this site and become more familiar with it:

  • Results: most pages have a small icon towards the top left of the screen that you can click to print the page that you are looking at. The printed output can sometimes take up many pages on your printer and, in most cases, the format will not be identical to what you are seeing on the site.
  • There are 2 buttons for looking at the Calendar:
    1. Calendar shows a line-by-line list of what is happening this month.
    2. Calendar Month shows a page with the familiar calendar month ouput

If you are on the Calendar Month page and the display is unreadable, click the icon at the top of the display that looks like a table ... box with horizontal lines, and the display will change to something more readble.

  • All pages: this site is more configurable than our previous location, such that, if you have some suggestions about what you see and how it is being displayed, please let us know as we may be able to implement something.
