Hi Ken
Events 2017:
Swiss National Races are not listed. Other small events are there. I guess you import the data.

I believe that it's just up to AttackPointers to add events? I want aware of anything happening automatically.

It looks like the actual location has not yet been indicated for many of the 2017 Swiss races, which is preventing them from being added.

Jim, event schedules from some sources are imported automatically (with some supervision from me).

This can work for any source that's not hand-formatted, i.e. if there is a database of events generating the club/federation schedule pages. The most general requirement is structured name/date/location data. Some clubs with hand-formatted pages also have a Google calendar feed, which works.

Feel free to get in touch with me if you are interested in setting up a new source.

I'll see if Brooke is interested in having you pull from the RMOC database.

Yes, it is true, the location has not yet been filled at many events. I will wait until the location is filled. It still takes a while until this events starts. I'll wait. Thanks for the feedback ken.
