    What is Otters Online?

    This is an automated system to simplify gala entry, and to maintain gala results, historical records of your times, and the club records. It also generates rankings, carries out club-wide qualifying checks,  maintains mailing lists, handles SMS messaging, and provides a club wiki. However, it will take some time to transfer old results and club records on to the system, so some of it is not yet functional. 

    Use the menus above to:

    PBs Find your PBs, or all the club PBs, here.
    All times List all your results (whether or not they're PBs), at any or all licence levels, from a specific date, or for all time. However, we are still adding old results to the system; it will take some time  to complete this.
    Results
    Find the results for a specific gala, including PBs and CSPAs.
    Records

    List the club records, or the best times achieved in the past year. This requires the old records to be transferred, which will take some time.

    Galas
    • Online entries: this is the place to enter galas. You can't enter on paper, or by asking nicely; you have to do it here.
    • Gala qualifying: find out how close you are to reaching the qualifying times for a gala.
    • Gala information: find out about a gala: when it is, what the entry requirements are, when online entries will open and close, and so on.
    • Gala entry reports: find out who else has entered, or what events you've already entered for.
    ConversionsCarry out course conversions here: SC to LC times, or vice-versa, for any event. This is just for fun: we do all the important conversions automatically.
    Emails Automatically send a test email to all the addresses that we have on record for you. All new members should do this, to ensure that our messages to you are not treated as spam or discarded. You will also need to do this if you change your email address.

    Email test
    1. Select your name in the pull-down list below, and click 'Send'. We will send a test email to every address that we have recorded for you. This email is constructed in a way that is likely to trigger your spam filters, if you have any.
    2. The test email should arrive within a few seconds, but may take longer if your mail provider is busy.
    3. If the mail does not appear in your inbox, please check your spam folder. If the mail is in your spam folder, mark it as 'Not spam', and send yourself another test email. Repeat until the mail is delivered direct to your inbox. If our test email continues to be delivered to your spam folder, proceed to step 4 below.
    4. If you do not receive our test email within a reasonable period (20 minutes or so), or you cannot convince your provider that the test email is not spam, then you will need to take special action to 'whitelist' us. We have published instructions for this. Please contact us if you do not know where these instructions are, or if you need help with them.
    5. If you are not receiving our emails, then we may simply have the wrong address for you. You will need to contact us to confirm your address. We cannot display your address(es) on this page for security and privacy reasons.
    6. Please let us know what happened when you followed these instructions. We need to know what email address you were testing, and (1) whether you initially received our test email without any problems; or (2) if you successfully marked a test email as 'Not spam'; or (3) whether you had to whitelist us.
