TRANSPONDERS
-  For 2019, we will be scoring using MotoTally scoring system.
-  Each rider must have a MotoTally transponder, which is to be mounted under the visor of your helmet.
-  Riders of the same team will be assigned a letter suffix to their team number (i.e. 1A, 1B, 1C, 1D, etc) 
-  Riders will be given a sticker with their race number on it. This is to be placed on the riders helmet as shown.
-  MotoTally transponders will be available for purchase. Cost is $15 per transponder. 
-  All transponder proceeds go to team M.O.R.E. (Motorcycle Out Reach Evangelism, aka. Motorcycles for Missionaries)
-  If you have multiple helmets, you can purchase multiple transponders. 
-  If you already have a MotoTally transponder, we can program it for you before the race. 
-  It is YOUR responsibility to mount the transponder on your helmet correctly.
-  Please mount them as we suggest. Improperly mounted transponders may not score properly.
-  Bring your helmet to on-site registration so we can test and/or program your transponder. 
-  Once the race has started, please do not come near the scoring area with any transponders.
-  *IMPORTANT* It is your responsibility to ensure that your transponder is properly affixed to your rider’s helmet that is       going out on the course. If a transponder does not read when passing through the scoring area, the scoring crew will         briefly stop that rider on the following lap to check that their transponder is present. If the transponder is present             and simply didn't read, the team will receive credit for the unscored laps. If the transponder is not present for any             reason (i.e. fell off, forgot to transfer it, etc) then the team will not receive credit for the unscored laps. PMMC will             only be responsible for inoperable transponders, not for you failing to mount transponders correctly.  A team or                 rider with a missing transponder will be sent back to the pits and promptly given a new transponder if needed, at               which point they may continue racing.
