Timers – Invitation to Host a Timer Tip Tuesday

Our live Timer Tip Tuesday webinars are a valuable resource for timers. We use these to provide product education on the latest technology, share tips on timer tools, and answer timers questions. In addition, we sometimes host a timer to share their best practices with others and dive into their timing business. We are now inviting timers to host their own Timer Tip Tuesday or other webinar to cover topics they feel other timers or their race organizers will be interested in. Timers can take advantage of this to share information with fellow timers or to help inform race organizers of the various tools and services timers bring to the race.
