Purpose

The initial purpose was devising a way to run the Ken Stewart Quickplay in an online format. In this case devising a suitable registration system.
Next was to devise a way to display a timetable for various online tournaments. During this time of lockdown, there might be a greater demand for tournaments of various types - or not. Another aspect is that would our GPCC members want to still play on Thursday at 7.15 pm onwards or at different times?
Having devised a system, it may be that other clubs might want to have me set up a similar system for them.
