Marking an empty chair that's being timed
« on: February 25, 2016, 07:27:08 pm »
In the Officiating Standards, it says that when a Skater has fouled out, the PBT times the empty chair and that "The chair should be marked in a way that it is clear to other Officials that the chair is being timed."  I know a pylon or a towel can be used. Does anyone do anything different?

I know some things, but there's a lot more I don't know.

We use a small orange cone.

I believe we've used these smaller, softer cones. Seems safer. But I've also seen small pillows or even hats used.

I have more than once used a water bottle, because nobody remembered to put a cone in the box before the game. Not ideal in terms of visibility but does the job.

I have more than once used the PBM whiteboard as a marker because it was what was to hand.

My absolute favorite, however, is the situation at Cornfed, where the NSOs are setup in a minature golf course adjacent to the roller rink.  It's a pretty sad little course, with ceramic chickens and pigs passing for "hazards."

You can see where this is going. :)
I'm better at remembering "Smasher" is me than "Adam."
