I have to agree with the previous reasons to prefer 5 - everyone can see it, and people are looking that way anyway. It is already the case that when the first buggy in a heat passes, everyone turns to follow it, and yet it's pretty rare that someone forgets that there are more buggies in the heat and steps in the road.

If people drifting into the road is a serious concern, one (awful) way to reduce that is to blank the jumbotron when there's a buggy nearby. You'd only miss what you can see live anyway so no great loss. The last buggy's chute might prevent you from seeing the first buggy's hill 3-4 on TV.

According to Sam's diagram, you can only get close enough to see #5 if you're actually standing in the road

To debunk the Cook's statement a little ... South facing isn't as bad as East facing between the hours of 8-11 when we have these races.

Uploaded a sunpath study to indicate direction and elevation.

Locations 3 and 4 are garbage on a sunny day.
Trees lining the course could provide some shading in location 2 (but also obscure some view angles) and the more south it faces the better.

Location 5 is best the more north it faces, but too much could tempt chutegazers on the inside bales to hop over and sneak peaks. Adjacent shitapple tree could help, so could a hood.

For sun considerations the best location would be inside the chute, right where they dug that annoying trench across the road (anybody wanna help me lay some pipe?)

So I downloaded the brochures and all for the Barco B-10 jumbotron ().

I can't figure out anything on 'ideal viewing distance' but most of the pictures are of folks standing quite near to it (~10') and I think location 5 would be too far away for viewing.

But from what I can tell the system is self-contained and runs off of a diesel generator (28 hours of operation with a full tank) and data handling is input through fairly routine interfaces ('The LED-PROTM is the ideal solution for converting RGB, HDTV, component, S-Video, composite (NTSC,
PAL and SECAM), SDI, DVI, and HD-SDI for use with the B-10 Mobile LED.'). I'm not sure what the AV guys used last year to interface with the jumbotron but it looks like this is setup for remote operation with video feed coming from anything from a computer/laptop to a camera or whatever. So I don't know why you couldn't park this on a flat spot by the gazebo like Tommy suggested () and pull the feed off of a laptop.

Presumably, the lag will be atrocious if it's run off a laptop and not cabled in to the live broadcast. I have tried to get laptop reception at the gazebo before, and the signal is terrible just for text-based email; I can't imagine trying to stream video.

Does anyone remember what watching the jumbotron was like last year? I was too distracted by actually participating in the race to remember how far away I could be and still able to see well.

Thinking about viewing distance, a 15' diagonal screen would be roughly 9'x12'. A buggy is roughly 7'-8' long. So a life-size image of a buggy would occupy ~2/3 of the long dimension of the screen (or ~1/2 of the area).

Looking at what I'd do for still pictures, I suspect the cameramen would aim to have ~1/4 of the image area occupied by the buggy, so figure the image on the screen will be 1/2 - 2/3 of life sized.

Everyone stands where they can see a life-size buggy on the course, so how does that compare with how far away the half-sized TV image will be?

Alternatively, 9'x12' is a little smaller than the side area of an ambulance. How far away would you have to be not see an image projected on one.

I was across the street in the tent all day. Everyone at the finish line and near hill 2 could see it. Even with the sun.

so, just curious if you all settled on a location yet...
