You can send the contest to ECats on-line scoring system for simultaneous pairs, either when the contest is over or continuously if you want barometer scoring.
The requirement for scoring at ECats is that you have a session number that you can use for reporting. If you just want to try it out, use session number 9999 that will take you to the ECats test area.
If you want to know details on how to report results to ECats, please read the detailed How to... section on your right.
Reporting to ECats is possible but restricted in the Magic Contest demo version. You can only report to the test area (session number 9999) and only odd board numbers up to 9 are included in the report.
