Tasks of the Hot-Air-Balloon

What do they compete with hot-air-balloons?

In balloon events, they compete on their 'accuracy' within a given period of time, not like general sports' cometition in 'speed'. They fly from several kilo-meters away toward the goal called 'TARGET', and they drop the sandbag called 'MARKER'. This is the basic rule of balloon completions. There are two ways to be decided the goal in advance, one is the event director decide and another way is pilot, oneself does.
In this site, we explain main kinds of 'TASK'. Some of them are not held so many times, however you will be able to enjoy watching better if you know their rules.
