Re: Minor Consent Waivers at your Workshops

Cub scouts must follow the Rules for power tools as laid out in The Guide for Safe Scouting. Look it up if you're not familiar with them.

Re: GPRM: Disqualify after scheduling?

Schedules don't take that long to generate via GPRM. I have pre registered everyone ahead of time, print out the roster then when they show up check them off and check the PASSED INSPECTION box on GPRM. Simple and easy if they no show.

Re: WANTED: 4 lane aluminum track

Don't know if you found a track yet but just tell you what we did. Our Pack sold the candy bars for $1 and in two weekends in front of wal mart we sold enough to pay for a 42 foot best track with champ timer, remote start solenoid and the gprm software

Dual projector screens on Gprm v17

Is there anyway to use two projectors and have gprm show the on deck list on one screen and the current race heat on the other?

Re: Best Track Mods

I had purchased BestTrack's leveling kit when I bought my track but I had to modify the kit to compensate for my uneven basement floor. There's a floor drain and the floor is sloped towards the drain so I had to add some extensions to the feet in the middle of the room. I made them about 6" long so...

Our District has used this peculiar schedule method for years now. I've not seen it anywhere else so for that reason I have dubbed it the Single Lane Start Lane Rotation schedule. We race on a four lane track....so we start with one boy on lane 1...next heat said boy advances to lane 2 and a new boy...
