SSRC Board Meeting, June, 2011
7:00 p.m., Bakers Dozen
Attendees: Brad Rhoden, Marla Rhoden, Norma Weiser, Jared Durall, Paul Wagner, Mary Anne Durall,
Chip timing system:
Brad spent some time observing the chip timing systems at his last few races. He noticed in some cases
people had their bib all wadded up as they crossed the finish line. It appears that if runners do this it
doesn’t record their time so most races have a manual timing system working in conjunction to ensure
they capture runner’s data. Some times runners just didn’t get recorded. As we look at a timing system
we need to give some thought to the impact to race type instructions and for the races we time we should
consider providing a formal instruction sheet with the bib. Additional discussion was had regarding
funding for the system, back up to the system, information provided in Brad, Paul’s and Jared’s research
regarding number of mats at start and finish (2each). Another back up option may be to video the finish.
Currently the only groups the club knows who used race director are in Connecticut and New Hampshire.
Yearly/ software upgrades will most likely be required - rare free. Discussed storage – we know of one
timing system that has 16 mats and decoder and can transport in back of ford bronco so don't need
Board agreed that we need to move forward and then set.
