Go to the Evolution Driving School, Phase I, II and then you won't need the
colored pointer cones.  I went to the Phase I and II and now I can "see"
the course VERY clearly.

                IMO, it would be great if every event, region, Tour, Pro and
Nationals would 
                use different color cones.  It is much easier to 'see' the
course using them.  
                I have run events where the left and right side of the
course used different 
                color cones.  I have also run events where the pointer cones
were a different 
                color, this is VERY beneficial.

                But the negative side is if your local clubs use different
color cones then 
                your members will get use to that.  Then if they attend
another event outside 
                your area, like a Tour, Pro or Nationals, that may not use
different color 
                cones, then they would be at a disadvantage.  Due to the
fact that people would 
                get use to the different color cones.  That has been the
argument in our region 
                for not getting them.

                Has anybody ever tried using different colored cones for
events?  Since
                they're readily available I figure somebody must have given
them a try.
                Are other colors easier to visualize?  Have different colors
for different
                functions?  Different sizes for different functions.  We
have some tall
                cones that we use for pivot cones and start/finish.  Seems
to make it
                easier to see.  Color might be another benefit.  Of course
there's the
                downside of having to stock the different colors.
