Looks like a 5 turn-point MAT which goes NW into the ridge system. Also looks like they have not quite launched yet.

Enjoy!

PS...I thought I made the right call not going this year, until I saw this task just now! Damn!!!!!!!

There are no targets found under the tabs for 18, FAI, or Sports. Either no one has turned on their Spots yet or the tracking isn't working very well.. I have found this site to be rather hit or miss with mostly miss. Sometimes there is tracking, but usually of only a small percentage of the Spot/Delorme equipped gliders flying.

Bummer. Either they are not flying or nobody on site has turned there tracker on. Already 2pm, I would expect to see at least one tracker running, if even on the ground.

Apparently this is live on HawkeTracking.com but you need to know the exact link.

Something like...hawketracking.org/r4n/large.htm?

Anyone know the correct link?

Thanks,

Sean

Here is the link to HAWKETRACKING which works!

Looks like they are about halfway into the task....
