Do we even have any of the older timings systems?

Just in case, everyone bring their Simon units. I know I have one, and Tom has one and now Warren does too. Reto or Thomas, don't you guys have a set?

Tim
We've done OK the past few events with Simons system. If we have four or five buttons things should be fine.

Terry will be happier if I don't add two plastic bins, spool of cable, and light box from my old system in the van. I already have multiple winches and batteries and line.

I'm packing tomorrow. The weather looks great do far.

Van is packed to go. Old signal system did not make it into the van. Hope everyone remembered to pack the new stuff.

What options do we have on setting the lines? Hopefully we can avoid the crosswind from two years ago. And also figure out how to keep the number of duration groups down to 3.

We have unlimited options re the lines direction. Any direction we like. I think it looks pretty much like it will stay E to SE for the contest. I had it mowed N to S with an expectation of a Northerly but we have no fronts this year. It may not be mowed low enough E to W to set up in both directions East to West but we can probably have more mowed on Thursday if necessary.
