HY-TEK's MEET MANAGER for Track & Field is designed to run any type of meet. But there are a few general set-up requirements that apply to all meets
MM requires that you specify the general set up of the meet. This general set up includes specifying such things as the Kind of Meet (e.g. Track and Field), the Meet Class (e.g. Open), and Meet Type. It is very important that you review carefully what you have set up. If they are wrong, or things have changed since you first set them up, please go back and correct them. MM is designed to be dynamic (that is responding to changes) and forgiving.
If you make changes after the meet is in progress, these changes may not produce the results you expect. For example, if you change the points awarded to 2nd place in the Scoring Set-up and you are half way through the meet, you will have to go back and re-score the first set of events so that MM can re-allocate the new set of points.
Here is a set of the generic steps to help you get started setting up your meet.
