Jen holding up the stake that anchors the tube with the control flag to the ground. Easy to miss during control pick-up if you haven't been explicitly warned to look for it. Ruth, Charlie, and Bob.
View of pavilion looking out toward the peninsula point. Finish shoot being setup; flags still on the ground.
View from the pavilion out toward the controls. You have to get to the dark green before you can expect to find any controls. The distance seemed much longer on the way to the finish than it did on the out.
Evghenii, Harley and Karla (backs to us), Vadim and Joseph. Checking receivers. But it's all messed up. Evghenii is checking his heart beat with a stethoscope. Harley and Karla are looking away from the transmitters, having adopted the Chevy Chase philosophy: the shortest path between two points is a straight line in the opposite direction. Vadim and Joseph have assumed a posture which they started on the hour and will hold for exactly one minute and repeat every five minutes in observance of a ritual prescribed by their chosen minor deity "MOE".

Vadim, Joseph. Joseph is directing Vadim in the next-gen receiver design: "The coffee maker circuit should only turn on if the receiver has been turned on between 0600 and 0800 and only if it senses that the cup is firmly connected to the adapter."
Vadim: "Now that Joseph is gone, I can concentrate on circuits that actually make sense for ARDF: the distillery circuit!"
Jerry, Lori, Ruth, Joseph. The picture is a bit blurry when zoomed in but it's such a good picture otherwise and I have no better one from the dinner.
Partial list: Joseph (white hat), Iurii (event T-shirt), Lori (white shirt with orange shoulders and blue sleeves), Bob (with cap on), Ruth (red and blue shirt), Karla (blue shirt), Harley (white cap), Mike (flagging tape on glasses, black hoodie). Everyone is checking out skips.
Joyce delivering the pre-race instructions. Joyce, Ken, Nancy (behind table), Greg (sun glasses, partially seen only), Nicolai. The rest of the group is just to the right.
Sarah, Norbert, Kuon, Brian, Joyce (plad shirt), Greg (green shirt, behind Joyce). Those clouds are looking a bit dark.
Joyce, Kuon (sitting), Scott, Bill (red shirt, at back), Richard, Matt, Jerry. And now that we have the impound area covered, the sun is back.
