Weekly Club Result Updates

It is the committees general belief that the general membership of the ISRF wants the ISRF weekly and open result published as soon as possible after the race bang off time.

But With the general slow response from some clubs sending their club results in for inclusion in the weekly  ISRF races on the day of the race and the poor response from some clubs not sending in their top 6 for the opens has made it impossible to get the result out.

The isrf committee have decided going  forward  that all clubs that want to be included in the ISRF result must send their result in on the day of the bang off .

Any club failing to comply will not be included in the result for that week

When  there is two races on the same day

1)  the open race has to be in on the day
2) The  weekly Fed race club results have to be in on the second day after the bang off .

Half of the clubs put their club result direct into pigeonlink which quickens up the final result being published and if all of the rest of the clubs did the same the result could be completed on the day of the race.
