@SgtChavis They do count. I had to remove them to make the virtual meet work right, and I will put them back in.

That way the ones who do purchase can contribute more. i would pay more for different features if possible.

The reason I am asking is because the Wake County Championships is listed as hand times for the first 2 heats of the girls 100 but non fat times for the last 2 heats.

@SgtChavis They were having trouble with the timing system not picking up the firing of the gun. They went to back-up hand-timing for those races. It happens from time to time. You never rely on only one timing system! I know the guys from Big Kahuna had three FAT systems running simultaneously the last time I saw them working a meet. The tip-off is that those heats have times that all end in zeros (and the huge discrepancies between prelims and finals for those races). It appears that the problems happened during the hurdle prelims and the girls' 100 dash, but were fixed by the time the boys ran.

@SgtChavis The big discrepancies were in the hurdles races, not in the girls 100 dash.
