Ski Race Help for USSA TD's

Update: 11/20/12


The goal of this page is to help USSA TD's become more comfortable dealing with Timers and Race Adminstrators. This is not a comprehensive guide to being a TD. It is a series of tutorials on the processes of timing, calculations and paperwork that many TD's find intimidating.


This has yet to be done.

For now, I encourage USSA TD's to check out the following information:
