National chair Gary Snyder vows site devoted to pending records

Gary Snyder, USATF National Masters T&F chairman, made a significant remark over the weekend, saying [in comment 52]: “Thanks to all who have offered constructive criticism, some good ideas and well other types of comments [on the records process]. This is an annual issue that I have been unable to improve. This year there will be a change. Jeff Brower the MTF web guru has volunteered to assist me in developing an online status system to provide information for everyone to see for pending record applications.” As some have noted, this falls short of a simpler process, and one that involves a true committee, and not just a single person. But progress is progress. We expect to learn more.

    Wouldn’t it be simpler just to have an unofficial wiki page? Of course some bogus claims would get in, but I imaging people would be pretty vigilant in policing each others’ submissions. It would certainly share the load.
