developed a new self-registration program to be released in 2008. The Trackside
Self-Registration will work in conjunction with your current
Trackside database and allow the racers to swipe their
AMA card and use a touch screen to sign themselves
into your event. Here is the high-level of how
the process will work to speed up your registration.
1. The race promoter will set up 1, 2, or 3 PCs
each with a touch screen monitor. A special
touch screen monitor and your average PC will be
needed for each self-registration station.
2. The self-registration stations can be set up and ready
for racers to use when they enter your grounds. No
need for registration to be open at that time. A
self-registration station can be open all night and into the early
morning allowing racers to come and signup long before
registration is open.
3. Racers go to the
station and swipe their
AMA card. The screens then take the user through
simple questions and screens allowing the user to
enter one or more classes via the Trackside touch
screen program. The racer is signed into the database for the selected Classes with
the selected Racing Numbers and Brands. If a
number is already taken for that class, the racer is
informed and must select a different number.
4. At the end of registering, the user
gets a printed release for each class. Trackside will recognize any
rider who is under 18 and also print the minor release needed. The racer is then instructed to
take this release to the "cashier" when
registration is open.
5. The cashier takes the entry fee and
marks the racer as PAID in Trackside.
Even though only racers with a valid AMA card
may use the self-registration, this process will be a great
benefit to you allowing your registration to run very
smooth and take less time.
If you would like to be one of the first
promoters using the Trackside Self-Registration, please contact
John Dains and express your interest.
KIOSK STATION SOFTWARE.
Copy the file you download into your C:\Trackside
folder then create a shortcut to it on your
desktop. The program will use the current
database your Trackside Software is pointing to.
Please note: In the sample
program, there are no real updates to your database.
