After all the data is entered in the software:

- TDTR must be saved as PDF and printed/signed for result packets

- TDTR may be viewed as XML

- TDTR must either be auto sent or saved as XML

- Saved XML TDTR must be attached to an email and sent to

Errors? Corrections can be made and the XML can be resent

NOTE: FIS results will not be scored to the FIS Points List until the TDTR XML file & FIS TD Report are submitted.

SUBMITTING THE TDTR XML FILE
what about non fis events
WHAT ABOUT NON-FIS EVENTS?
  • A TDTR is required for all USSA-scored non-FIS events
  • A TDTR is required for all USSA non-scored Championship events, e.g. YSL, U10, U12 Junior Championships, Masters Championships, etc.
  • Either the original paper copy USSA TDTR can be prepared or the FIS TDTRsoftware can be used to produce a PDF report, as required, for non-FIS events.
  • FIS TDTR software may be used for non-FIS events (FIS logo instead of USSA logo is a non-issue.)

-“National Race Code” is used for USSA Transmittal # (alpha character + 4-digit number) - “Category” must be selected; JUN-Junior or CHI-Children are acceptable

- “Race Codex” is left blank.

  • The TDTR XML file must not be submitted to USSA’s autoscoring system as USSA is not currently set up to accept the TDTR XML file

The TDTR for a non-FIS event must never be submitted to FIS!

Thank You For Your Attention!

This is an upgraded presentation. It has taken advantage of the work done by many Alpine Officials and we are grateful for their contributions.

The intention was to build a vehicle that can be used for explaining the intricacies of the TDTR as well as for updating Timing Chiefs and Technical Delegates.

This presentation is dedicated to Allen Church and includes a special “THANK YOU” for his many years of service to the USSA and the FIS Alpine Officials’ community.

Allen “The Pope” Church has been a valuable mentor and is a valued friend. He encouraged us to do our best and helped us to be better than we thought possible!
