Whilst not a major imperative on a Saturday morning, the Event Flags really make a difference for anyone new to the Sport or new to the Oval trying to find their way.
There are event flags for all running start lines and field events. Most are banged into the ground while the Discus and Shot Put are hand from the fencing.
The Set-up and Pack-up of the Event Flags will take a single individual about 15-20 minutes to complete. The task only involves banging into the ground Tent Pegs at the right location on the field and setting up the flags on those pegs. The more volunteers assisting with the set-up and pack-up reduces the time by over 50%.
