Timing Tips

Always Keep A Paper Copy!

Ok so our lead developer is an Eagle Scout. The Boy Scout Motto is “Be Prepared!”

We have tested our app extensively and have purposely tried to break it. We assure you that there are no issues. HOWEVER Please always have a backup plan. You could accidentally spill coffee on the device or forget to charge it the night before. Whatever the reason may be. Please keep a backup method.

A recommended backup method would be to keep a paper copy. Here is a template you can use Just in case!

You can also use this method to collect more data at the end or a timestamp if a swarm of people come accross the finish line in a confusing fashion.
