As we near the 5 year mark for the incorporation of the MyLaps timing system, some of the transponders batteries may be starting to lose their charge. The club has found a company that refurbishes the batteries in the transponders and we have tested them with success.
As a result, the club will be offering a transponder exchange program where members can exchange a transponder that is no longer working, or near failing, for a refurbished one.
Refurbished transponders will be $45.00ea and are offered as a swap – that is, members must relinquish their old transponder in order to receive a refurbished one.
There will be an option to purchase refurbished transponders when you register for races and we will also be selling them at races, although correct change will be required as the club carries limited funds on the day.
All refurbished transponders will come with a 12 month warranty on the battery.
The company the club is using is Transponder Services – if members wish to arrange the repair of their own transponders, feel free to contact them directly.
