    Vote on better course idenification turn markers


    Another vote on better course idenification turn markers. We have always had problems negotiating the course and finding the next turn that is a mile or more away. With so much going on in the turns it can be hard to keep your bearings on where you are exactly. I have suggested to use air ballons in the turns and sell sponsorships on them. Fly them 100 feet above the turn. A pilot's meeting would be needed for the choppers but other than that I like it. You could even put a camera on them and tape the turn with live coverage to shore on a big screen TV.

    There needs to be a change maybe a larger type marker, orange for left hand turns, neon yellow for right or something to that degree. as for the tv thing , maybe mercury can step up and bring the jumbo tron they had at the boat show in miami.
