Today was the second Long qualification race, again in the Woodhill Forest, but with the same finish/results area as yesterday. WooHoo – easy setup!!
But not so chill at times during the day…had issues keeping the generators up and running…
first off was the one running the front displays and the network. It ran out of gas about three hours in. Got the network on battery backup after that, since a lost network = lots of fiddling getting the display screens up again today. Today being different because we were including extra windows for the two day total time for each class so that people could see right away where they stood. Worth the extra effort! The competitors loved it. Yay!
It was a mad scramble to reset all of the displays. Got that done, when just a bit later, the back displays went dark, twice! Turns out the generator’s fuel vent cap had been turned to off, and it took some head scratching for me to figure it out after the second time. All was good after that.
