c.     re-create start lists
d.    delete all non-Canadian athletes.
e.     calculate race
f.     print official race (National)
g.    output to .xml

National Race Results:

Unofficial Results (with the non registered athletes (0000000)):

Showing Winners by Category.

a.  Print Unofficial results showing category, year of birth and group  - sort by category

Showing winners by time:

a.  Print Unofficial results showing category, year of birth and group – no sort.

Official Results (without the non-registered athletes (0000000)):

a.     calculate the race as per FIS and discard the penalty calculation.

b.    print the unofficial results  (Results (Unofficial)/Results/print a 2 run race/sort by Category  (this would be the one that I would have the TD sign; but ask him/her first).


To have a start list with a random draw by age category:

1.  Enter racers and add the age category to the category window.
2.  Random draw the whole field
3.  Print start list by using the sort category – this will randomly draw all racers in each category.

Late entry:

a.  add racer to race

b.  Under Generate Draw – calculate where the racer is to start and add late entry and insert his/her bib and start number. 

Note: This will not affect the start list order which is already done.  The racer will be added in the correct start with the correct bib and all the other start numbers will be shifted down.

Start List  (run 1) with both ladies and men:  (This will result in a start list with the lowest bib number being assigned the oldest racer up to the youngest)

1.  Create file as either ladies or men and add the appropriate gender athletes.
2.  Change the file gender to the other gender and add those athletes.

If Ladies are to start first –

a.         make their group A and edit their profiles to include Group A
b.         Make the men group B and edit their profiles to include Group B.
c.         create start list by showing category, group, and birth year and sort by Group first and then Category.

This will result in a start list with both the men and ladies with the ladies starting first by their category followed by the men by their category.

If the ladies are to start first before the men in their categories:

a.         follow the instructions as if the ladies are to start first; however sort by Category first and then Group.

This will result in a start list with both the men and ladies – with the ladies starting first in each of the categories followed by the men.

Note: You will need to create separate ladies and mens races and manually enter the draw.  This is require so you can upload the race to ACApoints.

2nd run start list:

a.  NOTE:  1st run start list must be sorted  by category.
b.  Reverse top 15 – this will reverse each category filed with the fastest last and slowest first by category.
c. 0 – will result in no reverses in category field – best time starts first.

Disabled racers in Masters race

1.  They start first
2.  Determine the start order of each athlete (by their diablility code) and assign them Group code A, B, C etc.  Give the ladies masters the next letter and the men’s masters the letter after that.
3.  Get the factor from the Para Alpine group for each athlete.
4.  When you get the times – multiply their time by the factor and manually enter into race.

1.  enter all racers in 1 race
2.  ensure all categories are correct
3.  assign group codes as above or as agreed on by Masters Coordinator (Peter McGibbon and Dave Nighswander)
4.  draw whole field
5.  start order by group and then category

NOTE:  after start list is created:

1.  you can add a late entry and it will not disturb the start order.
2.  you CANNOT change the category or group after the start list is created and try to recreate the sort – IT WILL CHANGE THE BIB NUMBER.  If you need to do this – try deleting the racer and entering him/her as a late entry – otherwise you will have to reenter everyone with a manual draw.


1.  Send the 1 file (with both men and ladies) to timing.
2.  They need to run the race and either men or ladies (no need to break out the genders).

3.  As long as the race office file has the same gender as the .dat file from timing it will read.  If the gender is different – change the race office file to the same gender.

4.  Create a copy of the .dat file and rename and men, open in Notepad and using find and replace – change the gender.  Do the same for the ladies file.  You will have 3 files (ML, L, and M).

Split out Genders:

1.  Copy the original file to create a separate Men’s and Ladie’s files.
2.  Change the gender to match the racers in the file.
3.  Delete the other gender in the file.

Entering times to separate gender file:

1.  When you load the .dat file, you will get bib # missing (they will be all the other gender that you have removed).  Just keep hitting okay.

2nd Run Start list

Start order – flip racers within their categories.

Note: Measures will not do this.
Note: dTris will not be able to do a bibo for this.


1.  create a .csv file after the run 1 start list is created.
2.  Open in excel and re-assign the start number and put a blank row in between each categories.
3.  Make a copy of the run 1 start list and save as run 2 start list (I set up a template with the logos).
4.  Change the header to include 2nd run start list – the 2nd run info (ie: course setter, gate count, forerunners).
5.  Insert the re-assigned start list from excel (copy and paste)
6.  Font – Courier new 9, margins .5 (all)
7.  resize the colums
8.  resize the row heights to .15
9.  adds the measures column titles and footer.


Note: Unofficial are created because they include the 000000 carded athletes.

1.  Unofficial of all racers (men and ladies) file by category and group

2.  Unofficial of all racers (men and ladies) file by finish time(no category sort).

3.  Unofficial of ladies file by category and group
