**MAY/MAY NOT BE RELATED QUESTION:**

About TAR 15 Leg 7: I just learned that there is a sort of "time-change" there, and Im sure time here will be changed too, since we are "live via satellite". What time does it start there?

So, after reading all the spoilers, speculations and seeing the pictures, not to mention what my gut is telling me...

The Bell Tower is done at dawn not twilight (gut instinct).  It is a roadblock.  Brian and Erika get behind and stay behind.
In a general task, they go to the windmill, put on costumes, ride their bikes to the strong man task where they take turns until their team beats the strongman to receive their next clue. DETOUR clue that is.
The detour is Dancing or Golfing and once done, pitstop is at a campground?
It's a non-elimination leg and Brian and Erika are most likely last to the pitstop.
Based on pictures & video, Trotters and Gary & Matt do the dancing task, Sam & dan, Meg & Cheyne do the golfing task.  I have a feeling Tiff and Mare will also dance, Brian and Erika?  Hummmm After the day Erika is having, it's anyone's guess. LOL

I may or may not be right.  Guess we will find out tonight!

Good Job detectives!  :hearts:

I know there is still a lot of speculation on whether the Bell tower or whatever takes place at the quay is the RB.  I still say it is the Bell tower for 2 reasons.  First, we only see Ericka doing the Bell tower.  Second, if the quay is the RB, why are BOTH Sam/Dan wet?  If it was the RB, wouldn't only one of them be wet?   Just saying......

The Bell tower is not in Zoutkamp at the quay its in Groningen  , they probably drive to the windmill as we see the cars in the lot. We don't know what they do at the quay if anything? Dan/Sam might be wet from the marsh at the golf/detour as pointed out by Chateau a few pages back.

I think the quay is just a difficult/ambiguous clue that the teams have to figure out. I don't think it's a Roadblock. Or it could be a general task.

No, I realized that.  I meant  either the Bell Tower  OR whatever happens at quay were possible RB locations.   I was just stating that out of those 2 choices   my money is on the Bell Tower, and that the quay seemed like a task both team members would do.

Here are the flights that teams may be taking from Dubai to the Netherlands.  The criteria I used to sort through the possibilities was that the flight had to end in Amsterdam based on Dutch's comment about teams driving from there.  The timing constraints are based on having the leading team Cheyne & Meghan cross paths with Steffie Sunrise in the lobby of her hotel as her family was checking out.  Her Twitter post at 7:51 am gives an upper bound on the leading team's release time.  It also suggests that the leading team was released after 6 am.  So the take off time from Dubai that I used as a selection criteria was 8:00 am or later.  At the other end, we have Brian & Ericka at the bell tower with lots of late afternoon sunlight.  Since sunset on July 29th was at 9:34 pm and the light on E&B is in the 6 pm to 8 pm time frame I used 8 pm as the Groningen arrival time upper bound.  Also, the driving time from AMS to Groningen is about 1 hour 50 min.  So I allowed for flights arriving at AMS up to 6:00 pm.


EK 15 DBX LGW 8:00 am 12:25 pm  U2 8875 LGW AMS 1:35 pm 3:50 pm
EK 17 DBX MAN 7:55 am 12:25 pm   WA 1084 MAN AMS 1:35 pm 4:05 pm
EK 59 DBX HAM 9:00 am 1:45 pm  WA 1782 HAM AMS 3:15 pm 4:25 pm
EK 87 DBXC ZRH 8:40 am 1:20 pm  WA 1960 ZRH AMS 2:50 pm 4:30 pm
EK 73 DBX CDG 8:20 am 1:30 pm  AF 2040 CDG AMS 3:25 pm 4:40 pm
EK 49 DBX MUC 8:35 am 1:00 pm  CL 4698 3:15 pm 4:45 pm
EK 45 DBX FRA 8:25 am 1:15 pm  KL 1768 FRA AMS 3:45 pm 5:00 pm (cancelled)
EK 93 DBX MPX 9:05 am 1:45 pm  KL 1626 MPX AMS 3:30 pm 5:25 pm
EK 15 DBX LGW 8:00 am 12:25 pm  BA 8117 LGW AMS 3:20 pm 5:30 pm
EK 45 DBX FRA 8:25 am 1:15 pm  LH 4680 FRA AMS 4:40 pm 5:45 pm

The flight through Hamburg has always been my favorite even though it is not the earliest because it left at 9 am making it more likely to be bookable than the flights closer to 8 am.

Heee!! Thanks so much!

I was just coming from flightstats myself with the almost same list...hope we do get to see what they took this time! :yess:

The upshot is that there are so many flights it will be very doable for teams to get either to Hamburg or AMS in plenty of time to be seen at the BellTower in the late afternoon on July 29th.

Now why don't I see a single flight into Bremen on that list? It is much more probable than Hamburg as the alternate to Amsterdam. And Peach you yourself sepfically sent reminders aboutit. However, as you know if you read my posts I believe the departure from Dubai will be much earlier and teams will be on different flights depending on their arrival time at Dubai airport.
