I don't feel that recording the jam times, timeouts, injuries, etc. on a sheet is too much work for me to do as a jam timer. I'm not doing anything else in a jam anyway. Getting a period timer to do this might also work, though. What I normally do is leave my clipboard in the centre of the track and retreat to it after I've performed my jam starting duties.

Personally, I am doing other things during the jam. As long as it doesn't interfere with my Jam Timing duties, I try to act as a backup wrangler. Specifically, once lead jammer has been established, I tend to watch her and her ref as they circle the track which: first helps me anticipate when the jam ending whistles will be blown so I stop the jam clock on the fourth whistle, but also has the added benefit letting my eyes sweep past both outside whiteboards so I can see when a penalty is being written down and can alert the wrangler or the closest penalty tracker. Beyond that, I'm also listening for penalties and relaying them.

Again, my JT duties come first. But beyond that, there's more I can do to be of assistance.

That said, I think that the stopwatch we discussed in the Advanced Stopwatches thread would let me handle Jam Timing paperwork with minimal effort. The recall mode allows you to review each lap time, so during the break between periods, or immediately after the bout, I could go back and fill in the length of each jam at my leisure, so all I need to notate while the bout is under way are timeouts and the like. However, I have not tried this and this is simply what I expect could work.

But if there's a mechanical failure, all that information's lost. I don't think I'd want to use the stopwatch as anything more than a backup plan.

I don't want to be doing that paperwork at all, and if I'm required to keep it while doing my JT duties, I end up not doing either very well.

WFTDA doesn't require the JT paperwork to be submitted as part of the standard stats package for a sanctioned bout. However, if the it's important to you, assign someone else to maintain it, like in tournaments. :P

(Just to be clear, this is me sassing a new Head Ref. Congratulations.)

Of course, if you reallly hate him, you'd keep him on the job, so you can make his life more miserable. First thing I'd do is put him on half rations and half salary.

You will bout as you practice.
