Chief of umpire review team list on double entry issue with Team Manager from Thailand University
Cool weather.. heavy rain... damaged boat ... capsized...
It's tough day but everthings under control. First Team Manager meeting being held to vote for the lane & heats at 3PM. We had the briefing & voting session. Last night, we have to stay back until 3:00am after the dinner. Last minute change by team manager cause a a lot of amendment to the list of participant and also to the race plan.
Some team managers trying their luck to have double entry on the favourite event but later we advise them to change the participant or withdraw from the event. I'm very busy with the result administration. Unable to join the crowd & enjoy watching he race.
It's quite tense up at tower with the conflict, data processing, umpire screaming at us etc. But most of the time, we laugh at each other & checking all the task carefully. A lot to improve and it's good to have all this automate some day like online registration and database.
well.. good luck all!
