Subject: RC: Timing Clocks
This is a question mostly for ride
I've been mulling an idea for a new kind of
competition that would help the
mostly recreational trail riders that attend my
events improve their
skill at judging pace and distance.
To pull this off, though, we'd need about five or
six *synchronized* accurate clocks.
I noticed that, at PAC, there were these big
white clocks that were the official
timers. Big 10" digital white plastic
things that were scattered all over the
place: at the in/out timer's, when the
horse entered the pulse-taking area,
Where does one get these clocks? Were do
you get your timing clocks,
whatever you use? Are these clocks
something special--guaranteed to be
more accurate (and thus synchronized) than your
typical K-Mart kitchen clock?
Or is K-Mart quality considered
good-enough? How much do the clocks
cost, if they are something special?
