Re: [RC] [RC] Racing - heidi

I think what sometimes happen is, originally, when set up, the finish
line  is in a safe area.  What happens at these crowded rides is folks
start  parking everywhere, and, eventually, start migrating towards the
finish line  area.  Parking their rigs, setting up a farrier's location,
that sort of  thing.  By the time the ride manager finds our about it,
it's too late.   People are dug in and getting them to move ain't easy.

Huh??  Being a ride manager entails delineating where people can and
cannot park--as well as designating areas for the farrier and other
vendors.  A simple matter of a strip of surveyor's tape on lathe stakes or
fiberglass posts can mark off a "Do Not Park" area well in advance.  And
if people are so rude as to park there anyway, part of the ride manager's
job is to be able to say "Move your carcass outta here--or else!!"  A
manager is SUPPOSED to manage...


Of course things aren't perfect,  perfect doesn't exist on this earth.
Doesn't mean we won't go on trying to get better at what we do. Besides, if
everything was perfect today, what would you do tomorrow? Slamming each
other doesn't get anything done.
