What Others Have Said

Thank you Bob, and your co-workers in timing. I have been a FORTUNATE event participant at several of the running events you have handled and continue to time. I appreciate all of your technical expertise, particularly the reporting to Mike Setter the results on certified courses, without a lot of begging and prodding to do so. MANY runners benefit from this generous priority placement of top timing in all the details and physical technicalities involved. May you continue the great gift to MN runners that you have open-mindedly honed to great respectful standards---and may it rub off in several other directions for event managers to benefit from witnessing or sharing what you feel runners want, support, and appreciate.

The GSE Advantage

Our Timing System...

RFID Timing RFID (chip) Timing: Ultra - The ultimate rifd timing/chip timing system. We chose the Ultra system because it is one of the leading technologies in RFID timing and chip timing. It allows us the option of being able to source UHF tags from anywhere, meaning we keep our prices competitive with rfid timing or chip timing providers without compromising quality.

Team Liam was formed in honor of Liam Schumacher. Liam was an incredible baby that truly amazed his team, his strength and resilience was like no other. Our goal is to continue through Liam’s legacy that has formed “Team Liam”. The event will take place two days before, what would have been his third birthday, and will not only celebrate his life but the funds raised will be used to assist families who find themselves in a similar situation.

GSE Series 2016

GSE Charity: Water Campaign

Charity Water Campaign

Many of us have no idea what it's like to be thirsty. Many people around the world don't have that luxury. Every day, about 1,400 children die from diseases caused by unsafe water and poor sanitation.

We at Gopher State Events started this fundraising campaign to help charity: water build these types of projects around the world. Please donate to our campaign -- anything you can give is a huge help. 100% of the money will be used to build clean water projects.

Connecting Fitness Through Teams

Connected Fitness The fitness world is very much about connecting folks socially. Giving them a chance to register for a race together and "connect" their results is one way to facilitate that. Along with non-competitive ways to dovetail on the team component, from a results standpoint, we provide several options. Teams could be scored by:

  • Combined Time (when a fixed number of participants are on each team);
  • Average Time (when you allow a range of numbers of participants on each team...ie: "You must have at least 3 team members.");
  • Team Score (adding up the individual places for the first x team members as is done in cross-country running);
  • Team Points (assigning a maximum number of points for first place and then going down from there as is done in Nordic Sking);

Nordic Ski Technology

Our Nordic Ski process uses a gantry structure with four overhead antennae. Participants wear vest-type bibs with an RFID tag adhered to the inside front and back of the bib. Below is a video indicating how to attach the Nordic Ski adhesive tags.

The GSE Mission

To make fitness event management, including related school sports, a more enjoyable, healthful, and social experience for all participants, to support the worthy causes that these events contribute to, to make the work easier for the event director, and to do this at a fee that is affordable and margin-based, rather than driven by what we think the market will bear.
