Assingments
These principals hold true for assigning volunteers or competitors as race workers. There are three very important jobs at a slalom race. They include: the Starter, the Finish Timer and the Scoring person who talks to Start & Finish. These three people run the race and keep it running.
Start needs at least two people, but three is better. Only in extrordinary circumstances can Start be run by one person! If the race is providing back up timing, additional back-up timing personal may be required at Start. The total number of assignees required should be three and four.
Finish needs at least two people but three is better. Only in extrordinary circumstances can Finish be run by one person! If the race is using electronic timing fewer people may be required. If the race is providing back up timing, additional back-up timing personal may be required at Finish. The total number of assignees required should be between two and five.
Scoring needs at least four people, but up to eight people may be requires depending on the type of timing system that will be used and how the communications with the gate judging stations is set up.
Gate Judging Stations needs at least two people and three is better. At least one of the Gate Judges should be an experienced judge. National level USACK races require the additional of an ICF certified judge at each judging station. Most slalom races have five gate judging stations but could require six depending on the number of gates and the layout of the course. The total number of gate judges required, including possible ICF certified judges, will be between fifteen and twenty-five.
