In past years we’ve always been plagued with winds playing havoc with our competition. Each place we go we have different measuring devices and while some are better than others, we routinely find winds playing too much of a role in our competition. While we can’t remove wind difference altogether, we can continue to do our best to minimize them from effecting the outcome of our competitions. In an effort to give us better wind reading capabilities, we’ve ordered a super sweet AIRSHOTS system. This software and and hardware system comes from our friends in Austria who have custom built a program that will give us detailed information that is specifically designed to work for our discipline. We will have detailed wind speeds, direction, graphs and the capability to save wind readings for each competitor into a csv file.

The good news is that it’s in the mail and hopefully we’ll have it up and running for next weeks meet. The bad news is, as mentioned earlier, we’ll be reducing the prize money paid out at each meet in order to help fund this expenditure. But it’s well worth it!!!
