It's not like this never happens despite warnings. Just mentioning it because it /is/ an ongoing problem, particularly with phone-addicted workers. I noticed in the background of one of my course pictures from last Sunday....

I know cell phones/cameras on course was addressed in the morning drivers/workers meeting. I worked safety for RG1 and RG2 and tried to keep an eye on the course workers, but this course was so long I couldn't really see what they were doing out there. I guess we need to have some binoculars for courses this big<grin>.

Is that a cell phone or a radio? Seems like a weird way to hold a cell phone and a normal way to hold a radio.

I'm not saying cell phones don't come out on course. They do, all the time. But I don't think this guy, working the station by himself, is on his phone.

You're right Jourdan. It looks like he could be talking into his radio. I'd need a higher res picture to see if there is a strap hanging from the radio.
