Race Director Spring 2014 Update

Fremont, MI - May 5, 2014. It's been an extremely active year so far in the Race Director timing world.  I'd like to bring everyone up to date on several topics. 

Race Director 2014
There have been a few more  changes in RD 2014 in the first few months than I've seen at the beginning of other years.  Many were related to the new Timing Point processes introduced in RD 2014.  I've also made quite a few improvements that you'll be interested in reading about.  There has also been a lot of activity in the systems that RD integrates - specifically my-finish.com, Run Sign Up, CT Live and Xact.
Race Director 2015
I now have a start on the development of Race Director 2015.  A working release of the new version will be available to Extended Support customers within a few weeks.  

Webinar Tuesday, May 27th
I plan on holding the first ever Race Director Webinar on Tuesday, May 27th @ 8 pm Eastern time.  I will spend 45 minutes covering new features in Race Director 2014.

Chicago User Conference 2014

Chicago, IL - March 20, 2014 - Thank you to the 50 timers and business partners attending the Chicago User Conference yesterday. I feel so blessed having such a great group of customers to work with. I appreciate all of the compliments from the timers, but you as a group of timers and partners need to be complimented as well.

2014 Timing Season Underway

Fremont, MI - February 24, 2014 - This is the time of year when I really start to see a pickup in activity related to Race Director.  At this point, there are close to 200 timers using Race Director 2014 with hundreds of races scored with the new release.  Keep your ideas for improvements coming my way.  I'm developing quite a list for 2015.
New Chip Timing Partner
I'm pleased to announce that Race Director now integrates with the race result chip timing equipment.  At this point, we have imports of timing data from this system working under both the standard chip results import and the lap results import.  Next, we'll be working on creating a Direct Connect option for this system.  For more information about this system, visit www.raceresult.com, or contact their US sales representative Mark Bockmann - mark.bockmann@raceresult.com.
2014 User Conference
It's not too late to register for the the March 19 user conference in Chicago.  I've had over 40 timers express interest in the conference - at this time there are 25 officially registered.  The conference will be held at the Chicago O'Hare Hilton Doubletree and will include a thorough run-through of Race Director 2014 - concentrating on all of the new features.  We'll also see in-depth demonstrations of the Race Director integration with CT Live, Run Sign Up and Xact.  Use the Race Director "Buy Now" button to secure a spot at this conference. Time is running out on the $129 hotel rate.  Register for the hotel using this link.

2013 Holiday Message

Fremont, MI - December 24, 2013 - Happy Holidays to all my Race Director friends.  What a wonderful year 2013 has been.  A little scary retiring from a "secure" job I liked a lot to concentrate fully on the "fun" job that I really, really love.  What it comes down to though, is not the work, but the people.  I've got such a wonderfully loyal, friendly, easy to work with customer base.  I really appreciate all of you.

I'm really happy about the improvements that we've been able to deliver for next year's release.  There are over 50 customers using RD 2014 now and all seem to be producing excellent results.

Rejoice in the spirit of Christmas which is Peace,
the miracle of Christmas which is Hope,
and the heart of Christmas which is Love
