Points Race Credit Reminder

A reminder regarding points. In order for your points to be calculated you must register for points races spelling your name the same way it is spelled for your membership. If FWRC member James Andrews registers as Jim Andrews for a points race he will not be picked up by the points software so will not get credit for that race. He can be manually added if we are made aware of the miss. Points have been updated through the Turkey Trot with the exception of volunteer points which will be added shortly. If you believe there is an error in your points please email me at: points@fwtc.org Thanks Mike Clendenen
