Wearing that is the one thing I refuse to do as an orienteering volunteer!
Then how will people know you are a volunteer and not just another tree (or in your case a tree stump)?
Because I have a friendly exasperated smile on my face and am being politely helpful to them while trying not to yell at someone else who isn't doing something right and which I could have done quicker myself* :)
I don't mind being the "ask me" person but I WILL NOT wear the orange vest :)
*oh wait, that's in my day job...
In WA you have a choice of orange or yellow (or both if you cannot decide).
This has to be a strong contender for post of the year.
I'm confused, is Jenny a post or a stump?
Jenny- I bought a "highlighter orange" top in a style I liked. It was similar to the vest colour. It fitted me and I was obvious so people could direct others to" the person in the orange top". This worked well at Easter 2014 when i was in charge of Rego etc. Barb Hill tried to encourage people to buy several for club usage with VOLUNTEER on back about 6 years ago but there was some resistance and if for club use then washing etc arose. I'm not a great fan of the vest - except for parking people.
SARA gave out orange shirts to rogaine volunteers a few years back. I gave mine to my mum.
Is parking people any easier than herding cats?
tRicky - that difficult choice was eliminated for me - the damn things are too small, whatever colour. Possibly the only advantage that has accrued to Juffy and I as the larger persons in WA orienteering :-)
However Juffy and his Dad are also easy to point out to someone.
"I want to thank the wonderful person responsible for this awesome course. Who do I thank?"
See that really tall person over there.....
Job done :-)
Yes cats are very small, especially when you're trying to herd them. However I have a knack for catching them with loads of practice. Dunno that colour makes a difference, except in the dark when it's difficult to see my two black ones although they give themselves away by opening their eyes.
Maybe the cats would be even easier to herd if they were high-vis cats.
I want one of those!!!!!!!!!!
That looks like Katniss in her youth. She's a rather aged 2.5 at the moment and was probably a bit smaller when this was posted back in 2014 (actually I don't think she'd been born yet).
