How Dania's Speed Challenge works

By now, you may have seen it in action, but here are the details (from Benny Bueno):
    It uses high end speed radar gun that is used for baseball and tennis with a display so that people can see the mph...

    There is no way to rig the gun up or down so I assume it is accurate...

    The gun has settings for inbound, outbound or both for pitch and height...

    I stand behind the thrower set at a 45 degree angle. There is a setting for 0-45 degrees.

    The gun is set to record the peak speed which I imagine is at release. We have done testing to ensure it is not picking up cesta or body motion. It is set to pick up the ball in a wide range including left, right, up and down.

    I read the results from the gun with several witnesses behind me and an assistant reads it off the display and writes it on the score sheet.
He added: "I imagine you're not the only person that is or will be skeptical but it's OK. Makes for a fun time on your board.... it's funner than thinking that it is on the up and up."
