If you ever do a triathlon you notice they all do chip timing. I did one race recently, where they had the results broadcast to the internet within minutes, from the race site. How frustrating is it when you do a race, you came in like 13th and they don't even acknowledge you finished.
Around here nobody does chip timing. I'm wondering what one could charge for timing an event, considering the chips cost 100 bucks a pop at wholesale. I have no clue what timing costs in general???
