Electronic Lap Scoring to be used at Championships
Lap scoring is always the bane of organisers of masters track distance races. You can’t get enough of them, many are not very good at it, mistakes are frequent. Remember poor Bob Schickert in Sacramento. Despite him thinking they were wrong, the lap-scorers told him he had finished so he did. Then a later check revealed they were wrong, he ran a lap short, and was disqualified.
So MAWA are delighted to announce that thanks to the AMA Perth 2016 Project Trust Fund, we have purchased electronic lap-scoring equipment, and we will use this at the Nationals. It is similar to that which we used at the World Championships.
