warm-up starts. The pads need to be in before warm-ups.
Set up the tables and chairs
for the scorers and timing system.

Get Starting System (from the swim team office on deck in Hillsborough or in the life guard room on deck in Bridgewater). Hopefully it was charging from the night before.

Connect the Starting System to one end of the cable harness.
Put one touch pad per lane.
Plug the touch pad into the “Primary Input” in the cable harness. Plug
one button per lane into the “Backup Input”.
At the 25-yard end, hang up
the wire cable with the harness attached. Lane 1 on cable harness goes
with lane 6 on the pool in Hillsborough. Tighten the end with pliers so it doesn’t sag.

In Bridgewater, the cable just lays on the deck. Lane 1 on the harness goes with Lane 1 on the pool.
The 2 harnesses at each end are connected by la long extension cable.
At end of the meet put everything
