(For those of you playing the home game, "...circles and arrows and a paragraph...explaining what each one was...")
The RD still couldn't figure out where the splits were. Sent me an e-mail asking if I was going to put down paint. So, I went out to paint. Darned if all three of my intermediate marks (bright yellow duct tape!) weren't still out on the course, right where I put them, in varying degrees of visibility.
"A typical case of...blind justice..." The kind of stuff that turns otherwise sane, rational men to strong drink.
After chatting with a RD friend, I recently learned the local powers-that-be frown upon spray-painted course markings.
Has anyone ever tried some sort of marker, using an adhesive (like what gets used to secure reflectors to road surfaces)?
I'll resort to carrying a hammer and PK/washers if need be, but past hammer episodes have never been, er, pretty.
