This is about 10 minutes from my work, I will be on my lunch in 2 hours so I will swing by and see if there is any action here today! FYI, this is the public dock at Harbour Green Park, which is literally right next to the seaplane terminal and Jack Poole Plaza at the Convention Centre

The person who tweeted info about Grouse Mountain earlier has confirmed in a reply to somebody that he is working with TAR, and he also tweeted pictures from his perch on one of the air tram's towers:

On the tower. A view from the top: http://yfrog.com/ocedtgj

More from Grouse Tower 2: http://yfrog.com/mnximij

I suspect the cameras are on the towers to film teams' arrivals or get shots of the tram coming up the mountain, because there is not really anything below the towers that they could be doing.

Thanks! They could have to jump to the tower, bungy/rappell out of the tram, all sorts have been done before!

Found a photo tweeted about 2 hours ago... this is in downtown Vancouver, so I imagine teams were hailing a cab to take them up to Grouse

Sadly I haven't got anything to report after my walk along the Coal Harbour Seawall, other than the fact that I saw the previously mentioned sailboat sail away from the dock. Didn't see anything that would indicate it was related to TAR. It had a banner that said "Abracadabra" in pretty large letters, so I am hypothesizing that a clue might have said "Find abracadabra in Coal Harbour". The boat also had a banner for this company http://www.blastsailing.com/race.html, so it is a racing sailboat. I doubt a racing sailboat would be moored in this location on a Monday morning unless it was TAR related...

I also walked through the seaplane terminal and didn't see any sign that there had been any TAR-related activity there today :(

FINALLY another tweet with a bit of information to go with:

A friend of mine spotted Amazing Race contestants running down Denman with paddles and life jackets today. They finally came to Vancouver!
this was posted to twitter 5 minutes ago.

The picture Peach posted above is very close to Denman, and Denman goes right down to the water of Coal Harbour.

I was able to catch a few things today in between studying for exams.  It's not super extensive, as it's just bits and pieces of information and evidence, but hopefully this will help:

  At Harbour Green Park, I noticed several two-person kayaks (it was difficult to tell how many there were but it looked like 5), which would fit in with the tweet regarding teams "running down Denman with paddles and life jackets."   I was only able to catch one team (male/female) there, who were possibly the last team.  There were people packing up after they left, including one camera man (I'm not sure if they were production or some news channel) who was getting shots of the boat flags.  They left the area around 11:30am and went up to Hastings St.  I'm assuming they hopped into a taxi as I had lost them after walking up Bute St.  I did manage to see something blue in their hands (Route Info?).

  I then headed up to Grouse Mountain, where I found some teams heading up/down the tram.  At about 1:20, a male/female team came out of a tram.  I overheard the female yell to their taxi driver something like "this is the finish line," which I'm assuming was the Pit Stop for this leg of the race.  I overheard a woman and her kids saying something about Crab Park, which may have been the Pit Stop location.  This team had some problems with money (they didn't have enough) but left Grouse within 10 minutes.  I'm not sure if they begged for money when they entered the Starbucks or not.

  During this time, a male/female team had just arrived at Grouse Mountain.  (They may have been the team I saw leaving Harbour Green Park earlier)

  The other team I saw was a female/female and they had just got off the tram at about 1:30-1:35.  As they were running to the taxi, I spotted one of the teammates holding a red Roadblock clue (Grouse Mountain=Roadblock). 

  After the female/female team left, I stayed for ~20minutes but nobody else came down during that time.  Unfortunately, I wasn't able to stay any longer to get a glimpse of the other teams or head out to Crab Park.  I was able to get some pictures but some aren't that great due to the distance and angle.

Pictures:

At Harbour Green Park:
-Male/Female team
-Male/Female team about to leave the park
-Man on boat handing out the clue
-Kayaks

At Grouse Mountain:

It looks like TAR Australia will go from Vancouver to Location Removed. I'm going to have to hunt down the episode when it airs. I love Vancouver and Location Removed!


After thinking it over, I've removed the info until after the next leg has been run as I don't want to cause people to show up and interfere with the filming. Vancouver sounded chaotic and it appears that at least one location was scrapped due to the presence of fans. I don't want a repeat of that. I've passed on the information to Peach to put it up later or I'll do it myself. If it doesn't get posted before then, which is likely.

Peach, your PM inbox is full. Check your email.

Here's another tweet from someone who claims to have helped out an Amazing Race contestant:

gretmoll Gretchen Moller
Helped a contestant out along the way #theamazingrace
3 hours ago

From her other tweets, she was flying from Toronto to JFK airport in New York City and then on to Santiago Chile. She apparently was having to deal with a flight cancellation from Toronto to JFK, but was tweeting from JFK. It's not clear whether she helped the contestant in Toronto or JFK but either would be possible if the teams were flying on to Vancouver. I saw where Peach said they were going from Havana to Vancouver. If that was the case, I expect she assisted the team in Toronto.

Bc922, this is wonderful!! :tu and great pics!! We have seen that F/F team before!

You did just right Plaidmoon, prob safe to post in a few hours. Vancouver was a security disaster, so we need to remain aware of the timing and safety of the racers. Great find!!

it's not exactly live sighting but it's a confirmation of Paris. The girl in the picture holds something that looks like a yellow TAR envelope.

Also, the blonde standing directly behind her appears to be one of the blondes from the Dubai race track.

Thanks RichInSydney and georgiapeach!  :)

The team in Paris looks a bit like the one I saw at Grouse Mountain.  The female also had a tag with the number 11 on her bag:

Yes it could!

It looks like TAR Australia will go from Vancouver to Location Removed. Banff. I'm going to have to hunt down the episode when it airs. I love Vancouver and Location Removed Banff!

3 hours ago


Since they are leaving at 7 AM and 8 AM this morning (Tuesday) for a 9-10 hour bus ride to Banff, they won't get there before sunset tonight and I expect an HOO. Therefore, most of the activity will likely be on Wednesday.
