Topics for Discussion
1.Should we modify the Application for Certification to allow the option to enter Certification Number of Calibration Course instead of mailing the certificate and map for calibration course?
2.Ted Corbitt’s documents/possessions - there are 17 legal cases of certification docs that NYRRC is still storing. Lots of historical importance. Hence, what should we do?
3.Ted Corbitt Award can’t be done as part of USATF, but we can do one as part of USATF. How will we handle this?
4.A new version of the (FS) Certificate blank, in which the default ID text beneath the signature line says "USATF/RRTC Certifier". Some have changed it to: "USATF/RRTC National Certifier" Should we address this issue?
5.Last year Toni Youngman felt we should make our Application for Certification compatible with IAAF. There are only one or 2 extra questions. Do we make changes?
6.Also the question on the application that asks how much you added or subtracted from the start, finish, or turn-around to bring the course to the correct distance. When one states they "added 30 meters to the turn-around." Does this means they moved the turn-around 15 meters, or moved the turn-around 30 meters? Should we change the question to "how much did you MOVE the start, finish, or turn-around to bring the course to the correct distance?"
7.All USATF Championship races will be pre-verified. What does this mean? How do we get this across to the Men’s and Women’ LDR’s? Also, what is the stipend the race should pay the measurer(s) and what other expenses should be paid by the event.
8.Mike Wickiser came up with a document showing problems with a GPS. What do we do with this?
9.One area of concern is accuracy of listed splits on the map descriptions. A Good example to list splits as Accurate as Possible can be made by this year Rock n Roll Half Marathon in Philadelphia, PA.
10.In reviewing the USATF manual for Adjusting a Certified Course, it never mentions the format for submitting this to the State Certifier. Maybe we should modify the text to give heads up to the measurer regarding the forms to be completed for the adjustment.
11.How do we handle a situation when a measurer’s work seems to be unrealistic over many submissions to a Regional Certifier.
