How can I import a results file in text format (e.g. the columns format in hytek or racetab) into a new racetab meet file for purposes of copying it's events?

Sprint Entries - Part 2

Just got in from running a 7 team meet.

All events were finals with no prelims, semis, and so on.  All finals.

We used the FAT timing system and important all the times.

All events were set up as to seed full heats, best together, best heats first, by lane preference.

The 800, 1600, and 3200 where set us as alleys with 4 to an alley.  (Coaches did not want to run 2 heats of these…

Results Report

When printing the results during the meet for updates the report doesn't say how many events you are through.  It seems as though prior to the 3.5 update that it did.  Did I miss something?  Is there a box to check to get it to print?  It is nice to be able to say - "Through 8 events the score is...."

Thanks for helping out.

Sprint Entries

Hey all, I import my meet from  Everything looks good, meet sets up and I am ready to go. We use the Radio Flash Timing system and I am absolutely loving it so far.  Easy to use and very straight forward.  Here is my problem.  On the sprints events (we are talking just a dual meet here) the sprints will put in a pre-lim level and a finals level.  I have a number of heats but we just want it do a final.  I can get it to do it, but I think I am missing something else…

Breaking ties in HJ and PV

I have watched the tutorial and read what was in the manual part.  In breaking ties in the verticals- I understand to go to the bottom and just type in the number of misses.  That still leaves it tied.

Then, I went to the field series.  Typed in the last two and then three heights. I marked accoring to legend, i.e, o= make, x= miss, p=pass.  Then, for example, tonight there was a tie at 5'6 in boys' hj. 

I typed in for one boy 5'6 o misses, for another boy 5'6 one miss. It kept…

Version 3.049 is out... 3.05 will be close behind

I had a couple of bug reports related to printing heat sheets and printing field relay results. So I pushed 3.049 out the door quickly to resolve those.

The plan is to keep on plugging away at some more fixes and features. So expect another update following close behind. Please provide your feedback, bug reports, wish list, etc on the User Guide. And Don Passenger... that does not include your wish list. :-) I already have heard it a few times haha.

Thanks everyone for your…

Version 3.047 Released

We have now officially released version 3.047, which we have had in beta for a while now. It has some crucial updates and fixes.

The main thing that you will notice (if you didn't try the beta) is that it looks very different, especially the welcome screen. We are in the process of updating the UI. I am calling this a transitional release because half of the UI is the same and half is like it was.

There is a really good grand vision here for the user experience and you'll just…
