Repainting

At A Glance

  • Every week (30 minutes to an hour, each repainting volunteer does three weeks.)
  • Shake spray cans vigorously for about a minute.
  • Walk slowly.
  • Just push the machine forward.  Trying to make little course corrections will result in a wiggly line.
  • Wear clothes & shoes that don't matter.  Paint may not come off.
  • Paint Use

Most locations take about 45 minutes to one hour for one person. If even one week is skipped, the lines may have disappeared by the second week, and laying out a field anew will take a team of six at least an hour, probably longer.
