The minimum duration prediction allowable is 30 seconds.

Set DurationEdit

The Contest Director shall set the target duration when the meet is sanctioned. This value shall appear on the sanction form and all appropriate contest information. The target duration shall be a multiple of 5 seconds between 30 and 120 seconds. All contestants shall attempt to achieve this same Set Duration.

Random DurationEdit

The Contest Director shall randomly select the target duration just prior to when the event is flown, by draw, dice, or other random device. The target duration shall be a multiple of 5 seconds between 30 and 120 seconds. All contestants shall attempt to achieve this same Random Duration.
