Here are two more crops from CaptJoe06.

More info at http://goodmorninggloucester.wordpress.com/


Peach - these are from the pictures CaptJoe06 has posted, I believe all the teams have been isolated from the video, but the pictures (and I hope there are more) will provide more clarity.

Okay...this is marked but I have uploaded it now on tinypics, photobucket and mediafire and can't get the audio to play, if anyone has a solution, please EMAIL me.

This is a video from drjtrade with thanks!! Security was extraordinarily tight, he did well to get these.

On the left is the blue/black F/F team.

In the center are the pinks.

Bending over on the right is the yellow F from what we are calling the possible Father/daughter team.

The scene then switches to Kevin Wu...the woman to his left is the woman with the multiple tattoos.

Sweet!

Notice the absence of The Amazing Fannypack and the presence of Hooky's black tags.

That tag is definitely the same one I saw last season. :tup:

I seriously doubt they've totally done away with any form of fanny pack; but I can see them having a "new" model that's not so obvious to bystanders. (After all they've had almost two hundred teams running the Race in the 16 prior seasons, and that probably is a reasonable size for a manufacturing order that's been used up.

I know it's hard from these caps to see what may now be a fanny pack, but it may be something to look for for the long term.

I've gone back and rewatched the start of TAR 16. From what I can tell, its just a black bag, and looks pretty similar to a purse.

Apologies for dodgy quality of screencaps.

I'm an idiot that can't tell the difference between the words "Stonehenge" and "Fannypack"

These are the REAL screencaps.

Georgiapeach thank you for all your work. I am enjoying sleuthing along with you guys.
That video is amazingly clear, and I agree with someone who said that the tall dark haired girl looked of Asian decent. But not even sure she is a racer.
Kevin Wu is very very clearly shown at the counter at the very end of that clip.

Taken from the Good Morning Gloucester video:



Full-size: http://img132.imageshack.us/img132/3253/tar17.jpg

A) M/F, Black and Blue, Black-haired/Blonde
B) F/F, Red and Black, Black-haired
C) M/M, Green, Dark-haired
D) F/F, Black/Light Blue, Black-haired/Blonde
E) F/F, Lime Green, Blonde
F) M/F, White/Purple, Black-haired/Blonde
G) F/M, Yellow, Blonde/Grey-haired
H) F/F, Pink, Black-haired/Blonde
I) M/M, Orange, African-American
J) F/M, Dark grey, Black-haired
K) Kenny & Kevin Wu - M/M, Dark Blue, Asian Father/Son

Macaroons has done a wonderful job compiling all of these teams and correlating them all with the reports from CaptJoe and the Airport.

I am going to use this is a guide for posting all the team pics, so click on that link about to see more pics of each team.

And CaptJoe has kindly given permission for us to use his fabulous starting gate photos in order to provide a clearer picture of the whole Boston adventure.

Y'all be sure to read up on his coverage HERE:

http://www.goodmorninggloucester.com

Team colors have proven to be confusing, so I am starting with the colors they wore on the start. By the time teams reached the airport, they were incredibly hot and sweaty apparently, so many of them changed before their flights. Teams were also heard referring to other teams by colors that were not so apparent (Team Turquoise?) but have used that nomenclature when possible.

And a HUGE THANK YOU to all those on site who have kindly shared their stories, their photos, their videos, and the wonderful adventure with us all!! You know who you are, and we couldn't do this without you!!

They could be using the bandana colors instead of the clothes. The couple in black (Team A) are wearing a turquoise bandana as opposed to a black one.

Ladies up next...after a brief doggy walking intermission. :lol:

Actually, The male/male blue team is the Wu's.

Apologies, that was my mistake initially, made before we had the video including footage of the 2 teams on the last boat. :-[

They could be using the bandana colors instead of the clothes. The couple in black (Team A) are wearing a turquoise bandana as opposed to a black one.

That seems most likely. In Macaroons images from the video you can see the Team A lady wearing the turquoise bandana around her neck, and in the airport interview the male has it tied around his right wrist

Of the Red Girls, why does the blue female look older and the rose girl like 22 and the other 40? Is that just me? Maybe its just the angle...Can someone else help me with that?
