Re: Race timing

At these events have you noticed the narrow chute and rubber mat
at the finish line? In order to get a good time the transmitting
and receiving antenna have to be in quite close proximity to the
chip. I think this constraint would impose problems for most of
our races, not to mention our racers who, I might add, sometimes
have troubles navigating between large stationary objects. :-)

I don't think we have the kind of $$$$ for this idea: I don't know
how much the related technology costs, but what happens to all those
transmitting tags that go on the shoes of the entrants at the Boston
or NY Marathon? do they get thrown away? wouldn't we like to have
them? Would anybody here like plot to "borrow" shoes at the end of a
marathon from about 80 unsuspecting and fatigued runners? Under the
ruse of giving foot massages?
