Hare and hounds

Two hare and hounds competitions are organized during the weekend. These flights take place saturday and sunday evenings. Balloonists must participate both flights.
One balloon takes off first and is the hare balloon. The other balloons are called the hounds, and they will launch 5 minutes after the hare. The hare lands at a suitable site and lays out a large fabric X.
The hound balloons attempt to drop their markers as close to the center of the X as possible.
