I'll be out (and will not be racing), so will be available to assist as needed.

Doug

PS let me know if any additional PC assets are needed. I can bring my laptop and it can connect to the Intranet from the field.

Doug,

If you are able to bring your laptop, it may be a candidate for a backup for running the timing system software. The software we are using is called "Laps Free" and can be found at the following link.

http://www.rctiming.com/download.shtml

For this to work your laptop needs a serial port. I think Chip has a USB to Serial adapter... Does your PC have a serial port? Can you have the software installed (or at least downloaded) in case we need to call your laptop into service?

Yes, it has a serial port. I'll download the software as well.

Race Results

All,

Here are some scans of the race results. We had some learning to do with the timing system and have a few bugs to get out. Thank-you for your patients. This was our first attempt at a race and we learned a lot from the experience. All suggestions and comments are welcome!!!

We hope you all had fun and enjoyed it as much as we did. Thanks again to all who participated.

Alvin

Here are a few of ours. Not sure if anyone had video, but that would look great at night.



















I thought I got more pics than that. My phone pics were bad. I got a few of my son rock crawling and having a good time on the rockpile.
