With all the big two day contests coming up, which adhere to strict F3K tasks, we've decided to mix things up a bit and will be doing all non F3K tasks for this contest.We will be doing unusual tasks such as 4 x 2:30, 3 x 3:20, 6 x 1:40, perhaps a round of Javelin launch, and the Mountain -my own variation on the ladder. Suggestions welcome!

Let's have some fun!

Yep. Remember it from the javelin launch days. IIRC, it was a 15 second minimum, unlimited throws (?) in a ten-minute window, so the idea was to fly one flight of 15 seconds and then another of 9:5X.
