Re: POST ONLY REPLIES, don't use New Topic

The Dixie Cup did not receive a sanction. I sent the sanction application, and Lynn, Steve and I would have been happy to grant a Prime, but unfortunately we never got the app back. Sometimes that's not the most important thing for all race organizers - nor is writing up a summary. I'm awaiting the ...

Before I bought my timer (from eBay seller "dragonwarrier2012"), I emailed to ask if I could also buy an extra beacon at the same time, and if they...

Re: Cheap Timer

I bet they actually did a bit of research - or at least paid attention to forums like this - to decide on including "Skateboard" on the label. The cord is more suitable for motorcycles, go-karts or other vehicles, where sometimes the sensor works best when positioned away from the display. (The sens...

Sorry to hear that, Wesley. Sounds like you're the latest addition to the roster of Team Broke the F$#@ Off.

If you haven't already, be sure to treat yourself to some RICE: Rest, Ice, Compression, Elevation. And if that doesn't work, get thee to a doctor. Hope it mends fast, though.
