You need to register when you first arrive. This is not a difficult procedure and you just need to present yourself at the registration desk. You’ll be given a slip of paper that has your details on it. Don’t lose this.
Once you’ve registered you should proceed to weigh ins. Only if you are in a lightweight event. Open weight events do not require weigh ins.
You want to warm up starting about 30 minutes prior to your race. Warm muscles are important. Try to start off lightly and get warm then do some sprint work.
You will be called to your race by an announcement. Proceed to your erg and this will be on your slip of paper. Sit down and make the necessary adjustments to your footboards. only make adjustments to drag factor and other items with the race coordinator.
Race away based on my talk this morning.
When you are finished your race, stay on your erg until all of your fellow competitors are done. Do not jump up and high five your friends. Show some sportsmanship and stay until the last stroke……
Be aware that multiple race classes are sometimes combined. So you may have competitors beside you on ergs that are outside of your r event.
The screen on your erg will show you the same times and splits as you are used to plus it will also show you what position you are in. Number 1 meaning you leading.
See me if you have any questions.
Here are the race times.
