Electronic Submittals to the South Texas
Please zip any file before you send it. Different types of e-mail handle files
differently and I have had a lot of problems
recently with files which have been sent.
Zipping seems to eliminate most of those
problems. If you need a zip program
- go to http://www.winzip.com for a free evaluation copy of winzip.
It is a requirement that all South Texas
Swimming teams who host a meet use Hy-Teks
Meet Manager for Windows. For exemptions from this requirement, please
contact the South Texas office.
It is preferable that all meet information
include the South Texas meet sanction number
in the name (e.g. meet invitation should
be ST2_01.doc, or meet result be ST2_01.mdb,
etc). Meet sanctions must be obtained before
meet information will be posted. All invitations
are requested to be submitted to the South Texas Swimming webmaster at least three weeks prior to the date of
the meet. The preferable method of creating a meet
invitation is Microsoft Word. If you do not have Microsoft Word
please export your file to Microsoft Word. If neither option is available please
submit your file in a RTF (rich-text format)
or as a pdf file (portable data file for
Adobe Acrobat reader). These invitations will be posted on the South
Texas Swimming Meet Information Page.
Maps to the Swim Facility
An street address for the facility is required
to produce a link to an electronic copy of
a map to your swim facility. Please inlude number, street, and city for
the facility (zip not necessary, but useful).
Meet Setup Files
All meet setup files should be sent at the
same time as the invitation. Please submit to the South Texas Swimming webmaster a zipped hyv file created in Meet Manager
for Windows. This file can be created by going to (file)
then (export) then (export to TM). Please zip this file before sending it to
the South Texas webmaster. This file will be placed on the website so
that any team may use this for electronic
Meet Timelines/Warmup Information
Meet Timeline files should be exported from
Meet Manager for Windows as an html file
and sent to the webmaster no later than Wednesday
the week of a meet. These can be created by going to (reports)
then (sessions) then choosing (all). Once you are viewing this report on the screen,
click on the envelope icon which has an arrow
on it. This is an export button. Export this file to html and send it to the
South Texas Swimming webmaster
Meet warmup and/or timing information is
optional and should be sent to the webmaster
at the same time as the timeline. The suggested format for meet warmup or timing
information is Microsoft Word.
To submit results to the South Texas website
please go to (file) then (backup). This will create a .zip file. This file should be sent to theSouth Texas Swimming webmaster. What will be posted on the website
is an HTML result file and a .cl2 file which
can be used to upload results into team manager.
