The federation secretary has a seperate account for the federation with username and password. The fedration secretary controls the federation using this account. This is to ensure all clubs process the same results and it make life much easier for the club secretary. 

1. The federation race secretary designs the organisations race programme, including Hours of Darkness two, three four day events etc All forms including e.g. Captain Cutcliff’s (RPRA) HOD. 

2. The federation secretary uploads the race program to the organisations cloud. (Select transfer to the cloud, select the race event, select This PC and tick the box Race Events - press accept. The race is now in the organisations cloud. 

3. The federation secretary amends the race once the birds have been liberated adding the correct liberation time and then uploads the race event to the cloud. (Repeats the process above)


4. Club secretaries synchronise their races before going to the club so that the correct liberation time is added. (Some clubs tether their mobile phone to their laptop to send and recieve data, Wifi is available at some locations. Most do this at home. The program does not need Internet connection to produce a result.
