Figure 8 Flags

Figure 8 Flags

Two Flags atop Two Barrels. A figure eight pattern, exchanging flags as you go.

The Pattern

Start from either end of the course carrying a flag. Go through timing line and go around first barrel in either direction, exchange flags, then go around the second barrel, turning it in the opposite direction. Exchange flags and return to the timing line. The dowel portion of the flag must be in the pail and touching the sand. If the flag has fallen (laid over pail or barrel), but not touched the ground, the rider may recover it and place it in the pail. If the flag touches the ground, the rider is disqualified. Special penalty: The rider will be disqualified for knocking over a pail, or for using the flag as a club or bat.
