I was wondering if we could look to mark the field out for metres aswell as yards. We do not have many club records for metric rounds and there are a number of competitions coming up the SCAS Junior FITA, Essex County FITA this might encourage people to shoot a Metric round. :cheer:

So myself and Neil are working through some ideas to put distance markers. It'd be good to work out if this goes ahead so we see if this changes what signs we need to put up and where.

We could, for instance, put Yard signs up on the right hand side of the field and Metre signs up on the left.

Also an idea would be to have yellow horizontal lines for metres and the normal "white lines" (i can feel a song coming on) for yards

Not sure of the song your referring to, unless it's something like "The 70m Nation Army" by the White Stripes ;-)

So the yellow lines is great but does make my cunning plan of using Soffit Boards as distance markers a bit awkward as the metre variants should be yellow - but then I could be a bit ocd...

So looks like between us myself and Neil have a working idea for the little distance markers and - all being well - we'll get together some time this week and make one or two prototypes up and see how well they work out.

Was thinking of having them just down the right hand side of the field semi-permanent.

If we did that, would you want similar "Metre" versions down the left hand side? Or in different colours or something down the right hand side too?
