As you may have heard through the forums, a group of us is evaluating the timing and results systems that are currently available, to see which (if any) would be a good use of the money NCNCA has budgeted for this. It's a range of equipment all the way from finish-line camera systems to bike-mounted transponders.
The first step is getting some feedback from promoters. We've put together an online survey that asks a bunch of questions about finish lines, courses, entrants, etc. It would be great if we had one survey filled out for every race so if you're a race organizer, please take a minute to fill one out - should take under 10 minutes. Here's your chance to let us know the details about your race, to make sure the next generation of equipment will be up to the task.
Here's a link to the survey - it'll remain open until Thanksgiving:
If you have any Q's you can email me at tadborek at pacbell dot net or just post to the boards.
