                  Would anyone else be interested in moving the timing lights around to measure performance on a particular element?

                  For example... from start to last cone on slalom. (Find our how much time you might lose or gain with a poor start)

                  .. or time from entry of a long sweeper to exit of that sweeper (measure effects of proximity to cones vs. Speed)

                  ... or a basic slalom time?

                  Those running race analyzers can compare performance on individual elements but many of us can’t and it is challenging to see exactly where time is lost when the only feedback is on the entire course time.

                  Food for thought... I’ll have fun no matter what.

                    That would be fun. But with the current schedule it may be difficult to change things around so much through the day. We can play it by ear. Otherwise I would highly recommend you pick up a solo storm setup!

                  could you put me down for 12:00 - 12:30


                  • #14
                    Put where you can use me, no worries!

                      I’ll help with course setup, if you like.
