Way points for triangles task for Woodside

Postby pep » Mon Jun 11, 2018 12:53 pm

Can someone tell us a good set of Way points for Woodside and the Valley?
And what could be used to set some easy triangles (if any) as task for Woodside? I am looking to set a 10, 25, 50 and of course 100 k triangles.
I know these are a good challenge in Woodside considering that usually is difficult to get over 4500 feet ASL, but I like to publish these points and maybe set a "year open challenge" for our flying community. (of course it should be under each flying category).

Thank you I will use this to set some task.

Will something like this work?

Are there any Waypoints done in the past that are worth setting up?

This is also a pretty solid tool: https://berndgassner.de/thermix/

The web app combines some of the functionality of Tom Payne’s XC Planner with thermal data from Thermap and Hotspots as well as track data from flight logs on XC sites.
