    Many simple timers limit out at one hour with two, instead of three, banks of digits.

    You need the timers NATC brings to the events to judge with, some were fairly small.

    I can just see that one in my mind! :rofl

    Everyone looking at some oddly positioned finger in the air. Wondering if is some new way to get the best results before a section.

    Next thing you know you see everyone doing it trying to figure out how it helps! :jack

    I thought you are supposed to wave it in your exhaust and then lick it again to see if you have your carb tuned properly... not sure how that helps with timing on the course though.

    It is interesting that some sports have developed very specific timing devices this is one that all the paddling and rowing coaches use ($150 for a stop watch is steep but "everyone" has one ) https://nksports.com/category-timing/interval-2000-split-rate-watch

    Some sports have people who throw a lot of money at their sport :-)
