PHOTO FINISH/ELECTRONIC TIMING
SCAA now has its own Photo Finish / Electronic Timing equipment.
See article below.
At the Annual General Meeting held on 15th March 2002 changes to the SCAA Constitution were approved.

PHOTO FINISH/ELECTRONIC TIMING
Many of you will know that Surrey County Athletic Association were given a grant by the London Marathon Trust to purchase Photo Finish/Electronic Timing equipment for use at various tracks. We can now report that the equipment has been delivered and a training course and demonstration given. More importantly the equipment was set up and used very successfully for the first time at the recent Kingston AC/Polytechnic Harriers open meeting at Kingsmeadow. All the track results for the afternoon were electronic. A great step forward for a club sponsored meeting.
Looking ahead it is intended to use the equipment on an experimental basis (we are still learning to use it) at the Surrey Championships at Kingsmeadow on the 11 and 12 May. There will be normal manual timing present but wherever possible times given will be from the electronic readout.
Any clubs who would like to use the Photo Finish at their meeting are invited to make contact with Michael Scott (Tel: 01932 343108) to discuss its use and fitting at the arena.
Also if any individuals are interested becoming skilled in the installation and use of the equipment they are also invited to call Michael Scott. To make full use of this new tool will need a number of 'operators' if we are all to obtain the most benefit from the system.
