Hy-Tek meet software updated to reflect 2010 Age-Graded Tables
Hy-Tek’s meet-management software is basically the only kind used for USATF and collegiate meets. So when this software changes, everyone is affected.
Masterstrack.com: Does the latest meet-management software incorporate the 2010 WMA tables?
Charlie Hodgson: Yes.
How do people know if their software has the 2010 tables?
If they have version 2.0Di or later with a revision date of May 26, 2010, or later, then they have the 2010 tables. Click Help / About to display this information.
If they don’t have the 2010 tables, how can they get an update of their software?
They must have version 2.0. In 2.0, by clicking Check for Updates at the top of the main screen, they can get the latest version.
Does the update cost anything if you already have the Hy-Tek software?
No, if you have 2.0.
Has Hy-Tek contacted people with track software to let them know of the 2010 tables?
We are not able to do that sort of thing. The release notes mention it and it is up to the users to keep up to date with the free updates obtained by clicking Check for Updates.
Has WMA cooperated with you on updating your software?
I was provided the new tables by Sandy Pashkin. I consulted with Rex Harvey to be sure to understand the tables.
Anything else we need to know about your software and the 2010 update?
Yes. The age factors I was provided was only for Combined Events and not for all events, and they were only for 5-year tables. So there are no one-year tables for these events. All other non-Combined Event tables still use the 2006 numbers and they can be used as 1-year tables or 5-year tables.
