Got it! The fifth time I've tried it, and I got it today.

3:06, 3:06, 3:26, 3:58, and 3:14

Lots of fun! Bring on December!

Yours, Greg

Oh, yeah: Flying a Blaster 3, at the Balloon Park in Albuquerque, New Mexico

Jaap comes up with some very interesting tasks. Sent my score in yesterday. Yea, five 3+ minute flights in a row. Flying weather yesterday was really great.

December's here - made 180s in the Task #2 Ladder over lunch break today, but had too many re-flights to get more before the 30 min max.

Good fun, and we'll try again on Saturday.

So far I haven't been able to get out for task2 but hope to this weekend. I think if I can get to 180 that will be doing pretty good for me.

We had a cold but beautiful day here today, crystal clear, bright sun, little wind. I thought it would be a great day to try the December task (and my first ever try at any DLG competition task). I took a long lunch break from work, drove over to the field....and found that my Tx battery was dead.

I would like to join in it but I am too late. I did not even know about it. There is one thing about the first task I did not understand. What is the window for the task?

Never mind I saw the rules in front page 30min window.

If you gentleman do not mind I would like to join in the fun. But this is up to the director.
