Cross Country Season 2014
September 15, 2014 - It's that time of year again - cross country season is upon us. Some nice changes are available in RD 2014 for cross country including total integration with my-finish.com.
Thre are two rather significant improvements to cross country scoring that have just been implemented. 1) For races where all of the finishers are expected to be one gender, the chip results import will automatically discard any result for the opposite gender. 2) When removing an unwanted read by entering a zero time override, you're now prompted about automatically switching the participant back to the default division. Both of these improvements are available now in the latest 2014 update and are documented in the Cross Country Scoring Guide.
