RE: 2017 Grand Tour Questions
I can't wait to see what people post for NJ-1 Boro of Teterboro Teterboro 40.858055,-74.05191. This should be interesting.

And this one is going to take some creativity CT-2 PT Barnum Statue Bridgeport 41.160720, -73.193674

Look at my Grand Tour FB photos (link in my signature) and you'll see a pic of Teterboro. If you need the address or coords of that pic to get one yourself, let me know and I'll look em up

EDIT: realized it was hard to tell which pic was Teterboro so here's a direct link to that pic: https://www.facebook.com/photo.php?fbid=...57&theater

RE: 2017 Grand Tour Questions
I'm planning a trip to wrap up my Grand Tour - but in researching, I think that NC-6 is no longer the same name:
NC-6 - Frontier Barbeque
Sugar Mountain, 36.12035,-81.83469

It looks like it used to be Frontier BBQ, then Pappy's BBQ, and is now the Pedalin Pig. Will find out Friday.

You had to represent NJ with a pic of a sewer pumping station? ROFLMAO

Wouldn't want to change the preconceived notions of what every one thinks Joisey is. This is just a reinforcing picture of those notions. You know the Jersey Turnpike, Jersey City, Orange, etc etc Big Grin

RE: 2017 Grand Tour Questions
I'm getting ready to start, better late than never. Bought a new bike so I need to put some (more) miles on it.

My printer isn't making colors. Can I use a black and white flag? I took a picture and it shows up fine.

I would guess, the same thing as not having a flag in the picture!

Naming Our Submission Photos
As the end of the Grand Tour comes into sight, I would like to ask if there is a preference in how to name our submission photos.

My style has been this:

IN-GL1a Pokagon State Park

Format decodes as:
<State> - <Category> (optional supporting photo) <Location Name>

So to interpret above, the photo is for Indiana, General Location 1, first of two Parks (State or National), and the picture is for Pokagon State Park in North-East Indiana.

For a Specific Location I just use:

MI-2 Sutton's Bay Galleries

<State> - <Specific Location Number> <Location Name>

If I have more than one picture to support a location, then I add a letter after the Specific Location, such as:

MI-5b Tawas Pt Lighthouse Closeup

This format should provide some order to the target locations, listing in order of state and aligned by Specific and General Location.

This works for me, but what about our scorer Alex ?

I'll let Mike chime in, but that should work.
I will send out a blank scoring spreadsheet as well sometime later this week.

Looks like this year's TS GT flag so, close enough.

Actually, the object referred to at the given coordinates was the Green and White DOT sign that read, "Entering Boro of Teterboro."

RE: 2017 Grand Tour Questions
Points for Rider #120 and #521 are going in the mail today.

I think I ended up with 24, and my father 46. He could have had a lot more, as he took a 3 week trip out west and hit a number of national parks - but he was riding with a group, and didn't want to hold them up each time he saw a school or something,

The Frontier BBQ in NC is now the Pedaling Pig - I confirmed that one with the manager, that it's changed hands a couple times in the last few years.
