Lining an Ultimate Field

Volunteers serve as ground support for operations at Ultimate tournaments. Even closer to the ground are the lines for Ultimate fields. Those lines don't paint themselves! Liners push a 4-wheeled field marker which sprays a 3" wide of aerosol white paint.

Just follow the straight line - a taut string - from one end to the other. Sounds simple enough, right? Well, slight veers are caused by unkempt terrain, walking too fast and not paying attention (like recklessly recording a video).

Watch the thrilling end of how this Ultimate field line turns out...

Loved it. As a coach who paces a field every day for practice, this is close to my heart.
