Only race secretaries identified as such in the AU Office database can use
eWinspeed. Login is required.
This is the main eWinspeed menu. The Station List, Races and Lofts icons
take you to the same place as the Stations, Races and Lofts menu options
The far right end of the menu line defaults to the NDB current active
season available for uploads (e.g. 2019 OB). Click on the downarrow to view
prior seasons (view only; not update or upload to NDB). Prior season
eWinspeed data begins with 2019 OB when eWinspeed was put into production.
Older seasons are listed because historic data is available in the NDB and
this list feature is shared by the NDB and eWinspeed.
To the right of the season, your current race secretary role is displayed
(club, combine, concourse). If you are race secretary for multiple
organizations you can use the downarrow to toggle to another role. All
eWinspeed screens will display customized data for the organization you
selected. You can only update data for the organization you selected. You
can change roles at any time during an eWinspeed session.
The Changelog (by date) tells you what programming features have been
modified and released into production.
You must use a recent version of Internet browser Chrome, Edge or Firefox
to use the Import by Date option. If you have one of these browsers be sure
it is up-to-date and not an older version. Other browsers cannot import
files from a folder.
Clockings can only be imported or manually entered at the club level. They
are automatically merged into your combine
if you matched those clockings to a race header defined by the combine
. If you choose your combine or concourse role, you will not see the
Clockings option on the menu.
Import by Date
: This option is used to bring in clockings from an electronic clock
interface. When you evaluate clocks after a race those clockings are stored
in a folder on your PC. If you don’t have Internet access to run eWinspeed
at your clubhouse, copy the files from that PC folder to a similarly-named
folder on a removable zip drive and take it home where you can run
eWinspeed and import clockings from the zip drive. The files MUST be in a
folder, not individually stored on the zip drive.
The first popup screen in the import process (titled “Select Folder to
Upload”) allows you locate the folder where the clockings have been stored
(click “Browse). They will be in a folder on the C: drive or on your zip
drive, so choose that drive on the left side of the popup screen. Then on
the right side of the popup screen double-click the folder in which the
clockings were stored. This will bring the folder name into the box at the
bottom of the popup screen where it says “Folder”.
For Benzing clocks this folder is Atis.
For Bricon clocks this folder is Bricon.
For Taurus clocks this folder is BT97\DATEN.
For Tipes clocks this folder is Tipes.
For TopPigeon clocks this folder is Uni.
For Unikon clocks this folder is Uni.
For Victory clocks this folder is VictoryExport.
The box on the right side of the “Select Folder to Upload” screen should be
blank and not list any of the individual files in the clocking folder.
Click “Upload” to proceed. The popup screen says, “Upload … files to this
Click “Upload” again to authorize the upload. The Internet requires
explicit permission to upload.
Then the “Import Race Clockings” popup screen lists the evaluation dates of
the clocking files.
Choose an evaluation date for the race you’re working on and click “Next”.
If you had more than one final knockoff for this race on different dates do
one import process per date.
The “Import Race Clockings” screen now has a popup where you match clock
positions to races. More than one clock position can be matched to a race.
(Example: a flyer’s clock would not accept birds to be entered in clock
position 1 so you used clock position 2 for that flyer.)
If you make a matching mistake there is a “Clear Matches” button at the
bottom of this screen.
Click “Import and Add New” if this is the first time you have imported
clockings for this race or you are adding more new clockings for this race.
Click “Import and Overwrite All” if you have previously imported clockings
for this race and want to replace them.
If a flyer name or loftname coming in from the clock does not exactly match
a flyer name or loftname in your Loft List, a matching popup screen will
appear with the mismatched lofts. Choose the correct loftname for each
listed loft. Then click “Ok”.
Wait until the import process is done. Then you’ll see the Upload Clockings
Upload Clockings List
: Displays all clockings you’ve uploaded or entered manually. The list is
sorted by race name and then flyer name, with the most recent race first.
You can make corrections to the clockings here.
To see all clockings for a flyer in a race just click on that flyer’s line.
On this line you can change loftname, race name and number of birds entered
Use the dropdown list to select a new loftname. (Example: 2 flyers share a
clock and both were imported with the same loftname.)
Use the dropdown list to select a new racename. If you matched clockings to
the wrong race or accidentally matched them to a club-defined race when
they should have been matched to a combine race you can select the correct
race here. This will reassign all clockings for the loft to that race. Then
go to Reports and re-upload the race to the NDB.
Type over the Entry number and all entries for that loft for this race will
be changed automatically.
: If a flyer does not have an electronic clock, use the Manual Clocking
screen to enter data for each bird that clocked. After you enter
information used to determine flyer clock deviation from master time
(master clock start date/time, master clock end date/time and flyer clock
stop date/time) you can repetitively enter multiple birds without having to
re-enter deviation data. If you switch to another flyer, enter the
deviation data for the new flyer.
When entering bands in manual clocking, type-ahead is in effect. As a band
number begins to be typed in, a list of the loft’s birds that match the
characters typed so far is presented and you can choose a band from the
list. Stored information for that bird is brought in so you don’t have to
enter the rest of the band information.
Manual Clocking field edits:
Band organization must be AU or IF or FMC or CN
Bird Color – maximum 4 characters
Add No Report
: Do not use Add Manually to add a no report. Use the Add No Report option.
Select race name and loft name and enter any band for the loft and number
of entries for the loft. The band is required because the clockings table
key for storing records is band number, so it doesn’t matter which band
number you enter; it is just a place-holder.
The Bird Table is populated automatically with all clocked birds for a
loft. If a clocked bird already is in the table it is not replaced. Race
secretaries also can add/change/delete birds in the table.
During import from electronic clocking systems the race secretary has the
option to use either the color and sex from the Bird Table or use the color
and sex from the flyer’s clock.
For lofts with manual clocks, printed race entry sheets can be produced by
selecting a loft and then selecting from that loft’s Bird List all birds to
Races must be added only by the race secretary of the highest level
organization participating in the race
. All subordinate clubs must use that race header when bringing in
clockings. That is what controls automatic merging to combine (and
concourse, if any).
Add a race
: Click the Add New button. A popup message asks, “Is this a combine or
concourse race?” You MUST answer YES if your club is part of a combine.
Your club race report will still be compiled with clockings you import
or add manually
If you answer NO you will be allowed to add the race as a club-only event.
DO NOT ANSWER NO if your club belongs to a combine! Your club’s clockings
will NOT be merged into the combine.
Edit a race
: Click on a race in the Race List.
You can VIEW a race defined by your parent organization (combine/concourse)
but cannot change it.
You can change races that you defined. If you change a race, the race
result will be recalculated and a red message will be displayed on the
result screen to remind you to re-upload to the NDB.
Add/Edit Race Screen fields
Organization name will be prefilled with your logged-on organization.

Race Date must be in MM DD YYYY format.
Release must be a letter of the alphabet. Common usage is A for the first
release of the day, B for the second release of the day, etc. If your
organization has a special race series for which separate average speed,
champion bird and champion loft statistics are to be compiled, use C for
Release Time must be HH:MM in military time.
Examples: 7am would be 07:00 and 1pm would be 13:00.
A season (Old Bird or Young Bird) must be selected. Old bird clockings will
not be accepted into a young bird race.
Special Race is optional. If you select it the race will not be included in

Optional: General Conditions, Release Wind/Weather/Temp, and Arrival
Wind/Weather/Temp, Custom Points.
Custom Points values may be entered if your organization wants their local race results to show customized values. Otherwise NDB points
will be displayed. Race results uploaded to the NDB will show only NDB
points in the National Database.
Points is the starting value for the first bird.
Blocksize determines how many birds get the same number of points in the
race. (i.e. 5 = 1st – 5th place birds get the same
number of points, 6th – 10th place birds get the same
number of points. This field is usually 1)
Decrement is the amount of decrease in points from one place to the next
place in the race. (i.e. 1st, 2nd, 3rd,
etc.) (i.e. “5” indicates the 1st place bird receives the
maximum number of points, 2nd place receives 5 fewer than the 1st place bird, 3rd place receives 5 fewer than the 2 nd place bird, etc.) This can be any whole number.
Stop Points determines where to stop awarding points.
: The first tab lists all races that have been defined for the current
organization. The second tab lists all races that have been defined for the
higher-level parent organization, if any.
Example 1: If you are a race secretary for a standalone club that is not
part of a combine, the first tab will list your club-only races and the
second tab will have no races listed.
Example 2: If your club belongs to a combine and you chose your club race
secretary role, the first tab will list your club-only races and the second
tab will list your parent combine’s races.
Example 3: If you are a combine race secretary and you chose that role, the
first tab will list your combine races and the second tab will list your
parent concourse races (if your combine is a member of a concourse).
Example 4: If you are a concourse race secretary and you chose that role,
the first tab will list your concourse races and the second tab will have
no races listed.
Clockings for flyers listed in the AU Office Database as members of your
club are eligible to be brought into your race reports.
Club loft information can be populated from data in your PC Winspeed backup
file (Master Lists, Backup Data). To assure eWinspeed lofts are
synchronized with Member records in the AU Office database, flyer first
name and last name coming in from PC Winspeed must match the AU Office
database Member first name and last name for this AUID. The flyer also must
be a member of your club in the AU Office database. If they are rejected
during import call the AU Office at 405-848-5801 and resolve the
discrepancy. Non-matches and non-members of this club are rejected.
Some members pay their AU dues as an individual or through another club.
The AU Office staff can add your club to the Member record. Then
re-importing from your PC Winspeed backup file will bring in that member.
Only flyers in the current Loft List for your club can have clockings
imported or manually entered for club races.
: If your club has sections you can add the section 1-character code and
its long name by clicking Manage Sections. Then you can assign a section
code to each listed loft. Sections are optional and are used to produce
separate section race reports.
Combines and Concourses inherit loft information from their member clubs.
If you are logged on as a combine or concourse race secretary the inherited
lofts will be displayed in the Loft List. Combine or Concourse sections can
be entered in the same manner as club sections.
Manual Loft Entry
: You can enter Loft information manually by clicking “Add New”. When you
start to enter the AUID number a list of your club members will be
displayed and you must choose a person from that dropdown list. Their data
will be filled in from the AU Office database. If you have sections in your
club, click in the Section box and a dropdown list of sections you created
via the Manage Sections button will show. Select a section. Select
Competition Level (Open or Junior). Enter Loft Latitude and Longitude in
either degrees, decimal minutes (DD:MM.mmmm) or degrees, minutes, decimal
seconds (DD:MM:SS.ssss) format. When you save the Loft record eWinspeed
will convert Latitude and Longitude to GPS format, so the numbers you
entered will change. They represent the same point on the map as the format
Station information can be populated from data in your PC Winspeed backup
file (Master Lists, Backup Data). For clubs, stations are only needed if the club has stand-alone races that are
not released with other clubs in a combine.
Stations must be defined at the highest level of competition so if
your combine releases with other combines in a concourse, the combine race
secretary would not need stations either but the concourse race secretary
would import them.
Manual Station Entry
: You can enter Station information manually by clicking “Add New”. Enter
the station name and Latitude/Longitude in either degrees, decimal minutes
(DD:MM.mmmm) or degrees, minutes, decimal seconds (DD:MM:SS.ssss) format.
When you save the Station record eWinspeed will convert Latitude and
Longitude to GPS format, so the numbers you entered will change. They
represent the same point on the map as the format you entered.
General distance of the station must be entered. This is the average
distance your organization uses for the race.
S (short), M (medium) or L (long) distance must be entered. Example: If you
enter M this race will be included in reports where M (medium distance) is
Load diploma blanks purchased from the AU Office into your printer and the

TERMS USED IN THE REPORTS:
UNIRATE – Universal Performance Rating. Percentiles for each race
performance are calculated by dividing the bird's position in a race by the
total number of birds entered in the race and converting the result into a
POINTS – Points are earned by the top 20% of birds clocked in a race, so
the beginning factor is that 20% figure and it is decremented by 1 for each
successive position. Distance and overall number of birds entered in the
race also are factors in the calculations. Local reports points are
slightly different from National Database points where distance is not a
factor. Organizations have the option to customize local points by
specifying a starting points value, blocksize, decrement and stop points
value on the Add/Edit Race screen.
LOFT POINTS – Sum of all a loft’s bird points in a race divided by the
number of birds entered by that loft. A minimum 5 birds must be entered to
earn Loft Points.
PRINTING OR SAVING REPORTS: For all reports click “Print” to bring up the
Print setup box where you can choose your printer or save the report to a
PDF. Other print options also are available to choose number of copies,
SELECTION CRITERIA: Some reports have various selection options that limit
the report to specific criteria:
Section as defined in Lofts.
Points Type (standard or custom) as defined on the race header.
Report Type (Full or Short).
The full report lists all birds that clocked.
The short report lists top 20% of birds that clocked plus the first bird
from each loft
that did not clock in the top 20%.

Weekly Race Report #
1: After all clockings and no reports have been entered for a race, select
this option to review the report. Then click the “Upload to NDB” button to
see race header information such as Race Name, Date/Time of Release,
Season, Organization Name, Station, Birds and Lofts participating and
weather information. This also releases that report to the NDB, adds your
club’s data to local reports such as Average Speed, Champion Loft and
Champion Bird, and automatically merges your club’s clockings to your
combine (if any). For combine it automatically merges clockings to the
concourse (if any).
Click “Upload to NDB” even if your club had less than 3 lofts competing.
The report will not be uploaded to the NDB but your data will be merged to
the higher level organization (combine, concourse if any).

earned by those birds.
Sections 1 and 4 are identical to a Weekly Race Report with the addition of
UNIRATE in column 2
NM (nomination) in column 7
PT (nomination points) in column 12.
Nomination points are assigned as follows:
Each bird nominated 1 or 2 that places in the top 10% on the race sheet
Each bird nominated 3 to 5 that places in the top 10% on the race sheet
Each bird nominated 1 to 5 that places 11% to 20% on the race sheet gets
Each bird with nomination 0 that places in the top 20% on the race sheet
Section 2 TWO-BIRD NOMINATED REPORT lists each loft where either their #1
or #2 nominated bird placed in the top 20% on the race sheet. If both birds
placed they are listed first (in ascending Unirate order). If only one
placed the report says “Missed” for the second bird and does not include
the missed bird in average Unirate. The one-bird-only lofts are listed in
ascending Unirate order.
Section 3 TEAM SCORE REPORT sorted by descending team score.
NOM is cumulative points over 5 in the top 20%.
BASIC is the loft’s number of birds in the top 20% times 5.
