Just a little idea

Postby Tom on Tue Jul 29, 2008 10:25 am

Just a little idea i was thinking about.
Seeing as we hardly ever do full runs of the course or time ourselves properly, i was thinking about having a leaderboard on the website and then we can post up our times on there as a little competition to see who fastest.

Now only one problem and that is timing. It is easy enough to mark out where everyone should start and finish but timing them between this is the only problem. Anyone with any ideas then post them up here, also do you think its a good idea or not?

Found a proper timing system but it will probably cost around £270 and apparently is accurate to 1/200th of a second
Its 2 timing poles which are £60 each
and a watch which is triggered to start timing by the poles and then to stop again by the second pole.
BUT the watch is £150 and seeing as you need 2 poles it will be £120 for those.

I will keep searching but walkie talkies and sotp watches are all good but not that accurate and it needs a few people for it to work.
