MglSoft Meet Manager Software Now
In response to many requests I am now prepared to make my Meet
Management software available for others to use.
The first 3 modules are now available:
- The Gala Recording Module records the results of an
inter-team gala, calculating points and producing results at the end
of the event. It may be used with the ARES Online Module to
operate online with Omega electronic timing systems and with the
Announcer Module to supply information for the announcer (using
a separate computer).
- The ARES Online Module collects online times from an
OMEGA ARES 21 (or OSM6) timing system and stores them in a database
for retrieval by other modules.
- The Announcer Module provides a console through which
other modules deliver prioritised messages for the competition
announcer, including heats lists, results, disqualifications,
official times, running scores.
Other modules currently exist and will be made available as and when
I have the opportunity to improve them to a suitable level of quality.
- The Meet Manager Module supports all aspects of running a
- Recording of entries
- Entry cards
- Competition programme
- Results processing
- BAG Points
- Results sheets
It may be used with the ARES Online Module to operate
online with Omega electronic timing systems, with the Announcer
Module to supply information for the announcer (using a separate
computer), and with the Club Statistician Module for running
of internal club competitions.

personal statistics information within a club, including
- Personal bests
- Full swim history
- Gala results
- Club records (including masters)
- Event selection
Download the files, extract to an empty directory and run setup.exe.
