WHAT IS THE LANE GENERATOR??
The Lane Generator (Version 2.0) is a self-contained program for PC's that randomly generates Lane Rotations for Games rallies. The program will take any number of teams and any number of lanes, and randomly generates lane assignments. It analyzes its "randomness" to assure this feature after the assignments have been made. The output can be used "as is" (it outputs a file which you name), and further it can be imported into Microsoft Excel in a spreadsheet format. The teams can be assigned numbers by the program, or you can enter the actual team names, and the output will have the same team names. The same is true for the lanes.
This program was designed by two-time USPC Nationals Advanced Champion Chris Clader, and has been utilized to assign the lane rotations for all of the the USPC Championships East since 2001. The program is free, and downloadable. It is self-extracting, requiring no additional program to run it. There is a help file included with the program should you require assistance.
