Event Timeline

We may plan two or three wave starts.  This is to keep the numbers manageable for each wave enabling easier timing of teams at the finish.  We would like the teams expecting to score high to start in an early waves as we know these teams take longer to check their score sheet at the end. (Fast on their feet but not so fast at checking!)
