RunnerCard Timing and Scoring System using our Mobile App Experience the difference beginning August of , just in time for the cross country season! The system controls will be accessible from your RunnerCard meet director. Fulton Accurate Timing uses FinishLynx Technology in conjunction with Hy-Tek and/or Meet Pro to give you Fully Automatic Times for your track and field meets. We have been offering Ipico Chip Timing with FinishLynx software for your XC and We are working towards powering all of our equipment with onsite solar. The Jaguar RFID chip timing system provides fast, accurate, real-time results. and timing hundreds of road races as well as track and cross country meets.
Every years I try to research the basic Finishlynx timing costs across the country for the main timers in each region. The south Florida in particular is very low in cost to provide the equipment I consider to be the basic HS package. Now for where I think this is going and how it may cause issue for HS track: The current this year FHSAA plan to have a 64 district two week free for all window means that quality timing is going to be real thin as each district thinks that they should be priority 1 for each company and get the premier Thursday for their meet.
I plan to sit at FACA I'm sure Mike will be with me there as well and try to avoid the issues, but quality timing will not be available in this format for many districts unwilling to move dates.
Why does this sport get to set the post season dates themselves? Other sports are told when they will compete in post season 3. The big meets will continue to be able to hire out and get the toys, etc.

Either the middle range events will need to figure out how to afford the toys or meets in Florida will start to disappear as things like wind readings, etc. Completing the meet seems to be enough now instead of providing a quality product that makes the meets better.
There is a growing small group of timers that seem to be improving so that if this was a priority, they could make the jump to full time guys. My final observations are that I am going to continue to add and advance the services we are able to provide which will continue to keep me making about the same as or less than I did teaching with way more risk and travel wear and tear on the body and vehicle. Those that just write the check and believe that we are making a killing, I wish that were true!

Safety pins are not included.
Results are posted live during the event on Webscorer. Teams can be scored by points or times. Only one mobile device may be needed to time the race.
