As you may or may not be aware, PHRF-LO has adjusted the Time on Time numbers used for calculating your race results.
This change was made after the Technical Advisory Committee did an in-depth analysis of our data over the past 5 years. This data included over 3,500 races.
On November 15, 2008, the analysis of the data (and results) was presented to the Central Council of Handicappers along with a recommendation to adjust our current Q.Factor (used in calculating our Time on Time numbers) from .045 to .008.
Central Council voted in favour of the change starting in the 2009 season.
On January 10, 2009 we held our Annual General Meeting at which time all Member club handicappers and representatives were also presented with this analysis and it was recommended that they also implement this at their respective clubs.
That presentation is available in an Adobe format for your review.
