Hello Poke!

I've been asked to mentor and fly for a high school in OKC.

I have some questions about the race itself:
Scoring: Ok we get 1 point for each pylon turn completed in a two minute period. Since the instructions state a 1 second staggered take off when does each teams two minutes acutally start?

Flagging and cutting turns: The AMA guide book and your paragraph on cut judges implies the team flagger cannot anticipate the turn, they must wait til the plane crosses the turn line. Is this correct?

Course dimentions: Your final diagram indicates it will be 675 feet from the spectator line to the pylons. What is the absolute minimum distance from the pilot stations to the pylon line?

Will all take offs be south towards the first turn even if this is a down wind take off?
