Rule 10.3.5 Finish Line

From Reference
Jump to: navigation, search

A platform several feet high should be placed on the northern sidewalk of Frew Street, directly in line with the finish line of the buggy course. This platform will provide a vantage point for the Sweepstakes race timers, so that they have a better view of the finish line of the race.

A flatbed truck is usually used as the platform at the finish line. This truck can usually be obtained from the Physical Plant Department of Carnegie Mellon University. Arrangements to borrow this truck should be made by the Sweepstakes Chairman, approximately six weeks before the preliminary races are scheduled to take place, through the office of the Sweepstakes Advisor.
