Control Points

Five Start Points (all near Hobbs), 43 Turn Points, and 1 Finish Point (at Hobbs) comprise the "Control Points" for the contest. Competitors download the official Control Point database to program the instruments they use to navigate around the contest area. The Scorer uses the same database to evaluate their flights.

The Control Points are identified both by name and by number. Sometimes the names are hard to pronounce.
