and the insurance offered by the scheme not being in place.
To those of you who have
operated it finish funnels before this may seem as trying to teach your
grandmother to suck eggs, but the method is tried and tested and it works, so
why try to reinvent the wheel. If we all sing by the same hymnbook nothing
should go wrong. Ha Ha.
(TK) & TIME RECORDERS (TR)
Make contact with the Race Starter and make sure that he / she will not start the race until you are ready to start timing. Position yourself where you can see the race starter and signal the starter when you are ready. Start both stopwatches the instant the gun / horn goes off.
Return to the
finish line and prepare to time the first runners home. The
timekeeperís recorder (TR) will note the leading competitors finishing time as
called by the timekeeper in the section marked time by position 1 on the timing
sheet, the second runner in position 2 and
so on with each runner to finish. If possible the TR will record the first 3
competitors number as well as their finishing times. The TR will also record at
least 2 spot times preferably more, per sheet including noting the first 3
ladies to finish. (Spot times are where a competitorís number is recorded with
their time, as to give a finishing point of reference for the computer
operator). DO NOT LET ANYONE DISTRACT YOU BY ALLOWING ANYONE TO ASK FOR A
FINISH TIME, TELL THEM POLITELY TO GO
FINISH RECORDERS (FR) &
FINISH CALLERS (FC)
Position yourselves at the opposite end of the finish funnel to the timekeepers and nowhere else ready to record the first finishers race number as he / she leaves the funnel. The person who is doing the writing (FR) should stand with his / her back to the finish line, so that he / she cannot see the approaching runners. The finish recorderís caller (FC) will call the competitors race number to the FR to write the competitors number in the appropriate position on the finishers sheet and the FC must stop anyone exiting the finish funnel until they are happy that the FR as noted the competitors number in the correct position on the finishers sheet. Be as quick as you can without making any mistakes as to keep the finish funnel as clear as possible.
