Race Director Mid year Update - 2017

Upcoming Conference.  Join us in Philadelphia for the Fourth Annual Race Director/Timer Symposium on July 17-19 at the Chemical Heritage Foundation.  This year's conference will again include Customer Race Presentations and RunSignUp Employee Demos.  The conference is designed for both timers and race directors.  There will also be representatives from multiple chip timing manufacturers in attendance. There will be a half day session devoted to Race Director where many of the latest 2017 enhancements (see below) will be highlighted.

Race Day Scoring.  Work has begun on Race Day Scoring, and we will have an Alpha version at the Symposium in Philadelphia to demonstrate the basics of the platform.  This is the system that will (after a few years) become the replacement for Race Director.  This is a very big undertaking and we're off to a great start.  Currently, we are working on how to sequence the work around simple race scenarios and general race day tools.  Having a system that will work with or without an internet connection is one of the biggest design challenges.  At first, Race Director PC will be required for scoring your race without an internet connection. Strengthening the current Race Director / RSU integration points will continue to be a major priority.
