New Timing Software, New LiveTiming Set up

Happy New Year to the Far West Families. Cheers to 2016 where we have snow on the ground, been able to enjoy early season training, and a few powder days, too! We have been patiently awaiting a November and December like this for quite some time.

A little bit about the upcoming New Year of Racing and some things to expect.

In October USSA mandated a new timing software to be used by all race organizers across the nation. With this comes some changes from your viewing in the past. The new timing software is called Vola and the reports (start lists, results, etc). 
As with any transition, we do ask for your patience as it may take the Race Organizer and Officials a bit extra time as they navigate the systems.

Along with a new timing system comes a new live timing platform. Take a moment to bookmark for those that are interested in checking for start lists, results, etc online.

The one exception is when athletes are running dual/parallel events (such as the U14 Jan 2-3, and the U10.U12 North Series on Jan 9-10, etc.). The USSA live timing platform does not work for parallels so these events will be run in the old timing software, split second and will be used.

Cheers to an outstanding year of Snow and Racing in the Far West Division.
