I like this idea, something that simple has got to work! <grin>
Was it much trouble to set the flag up? Presently our Barony has the
permission of a primary school to use their cricket oval to shoot on. The
pitch makes a pretty natural shooting line, however we don't have any
onsite storage so a simple set up with the bike flag looks promising.
To the others on the list who have responded - thanks a lot.
