New caps! I am trying something for easier reference...there will be a number at the bottom right of each cap that we can use to identify the pics. Let me know if it works/doesn't work??
and oopsie..they are a little big! Will shrink the next batch!

I think our knights can be found here...
http://www.knightsofmiddleengland.com/flashsite/tv-film.htm

They are based in Warwick which is quite far from Salisbury, but they seem to be mobile so they could have been at the Druids Lodge still.
The knight shown in the promo seems to be the same.
From there to here, and here to there,
funny things are everywhere

Oh Nice! Stonehenge to Warwick is only a couple of hours, wouldn't be a bad drive at all. We know they have cars...

So do the knights travel to them?? Or do they travel to the knights? Aye...there's the rub!

I am already missing Charla in this ep! :lol:

hmmm...we were under the impression that at was at The Eastern Point Yacht club...but a quick pic review makes your location look VERY good.

Map guys? Can we spot this??


:thankyou: Keep 'em coming! :lol:

I think I'll like the first leg!  I went to Orlando for my senior class trip and one of the things we did was to go see Medieval Times.  I loved it, so I think I'll love seeing the knights on the first leg!

The only problem with Stage Fort Park is that there is no dock to unload the lobster boats that they travel in to get to the starting line. I still think it is at the East Point Yacht Club across the bay. Both have similar surface geology, btw...

Where did you see that please? Channel and time? If y'all will keep track of that, you have a better chance of getting caps!

I can tell you without a shadow of a doubt that those vidcaps are of Eastern Point Yacht Club.  See the railing in the left hand side of the shot?  That is the railing that leads down tro the dock where they get off the boat.  My best friend grew up two houses away from EPYC and I basically grew up wih him and his brothers in that house.  When we were young we would go to record hops at EPYC.

In the map below they line up in the northwest corner of where the pool is.

http://maps.google.com/maps?f=q&source=s_q&hl=en&geocode=&q=Eastern+Point+Yacht+Club,+Gloucester,+MA&sll=42.454368,-70.999832&sspn=0.211259,0.673599&ie=UTF8&hq=Eastern+Point+Yacht+Club,&hnear=Gloucester,+Essex,+Massachusetts&ll=42.582631,-70.664632&spn=0.000412,0.001316&t=h&z=20&iwloc=A

I'll make a google map of their destination from leaving The dock in the inner harbor to the outer harbor and Eastern Point Yacht Club and then the only way they can get off Eastern Point and down Eastern point Road and onto East Main Street where my wife ran into the string of smart cars and gave directions to one of the teams. After that  don't know exactly what route they took but up til that point I am 100% certain.


In the Google Map Below I outline the route that they took with a line depicting the route-

Hey! I think I saw the same promo. I came on here hoping someone had caught it and put up caps already. Anyway, it was during Big Brother. It was delayed here in the Bay Area because of football, so BB came on at 1:37AM. Saw some sort of task involving teams in some body of water, and one team getting frustrated (might have been Jill and Thomas?) And the promo ended with Chad and Stephanie and I also noticed that they looked like they were sitting in the backseat of a very small, tight automobile of some sort...

Okay, that promo shows the start line, the Smart cars from the start to the airport in Boston, and a task..looks like they have to get a purple flag in the water. My guess is that this is a start line task and is in Gloucester, but can't confirm. Steph and Chad are looking way happy, and we know they were one of the 3 teams on the first flight.

Working on getting the promo for y'all!!

Promo! Sorry I don't have the actual promo video, and these are not HD, but  :wohoo:

Clearly shows the start, the Smart Car, the road from Gloucester (?) and then...a task!

Is this a start line task getting them on the first flight (only three)??

Or is this the comp for the Express Pass? Or  does that go later to the winner of the first leg??

The purple could be a banner for the knight task as well... lots to think about!

Chad and Stephanie look thrilled, and we do know they made the first flight.

And from Phil via FB

The site looks good! Thanks for doing that!

Not quite sure of Phil and the racers' exact placements though...

This promo shows them leaping over some boulders in 5, 6, and 7...maybe they are a little further back??

I think he is pretty close, Peach. If you look at Caps 1,2,3, then Katie/Rachel, Gary/Mallory, Jill/Thomas and Ron/Tony are at the end of the line and right in front of the path to the docks. I think teams on the far end of the line can run around the outcropping that Phil is standing in front of and split him. I think they are all closer to Phil than his position indicates. Ron basically hurdles the other outcrop. It appears that teams in the middle of the starting formation try to funnel through the gap and get sort of all mixed up. I think the camera is probably next to the building at the top or the satelite view and teams will run toward it and then pass in front of it to the cars.

That twitvid maybe the most painful looking moment I've ever seen on TAR. How did that happen? It didn't look like the melon was overly covered by the slingshot when she launched it. I'm sure that it was unexpected or they would have had them wearing safety helmets.

It might be a little peek into the motivation level of the victim that she didn't seem to want to get back to the target shooting, but I'd imagine that I'd have a slight lapse in focus too if I had a splitting headache and blurry vision.  :colors
