Clearly my 2p cannot count in the poll, but it was always telling for me as a Marshal to stand well back, and time competitors without their knowledge.
If I was standing at your peg, you were safe as I was likely to be watching someone else.
A suggestion may be for Marshalls to do the same for a trial period, issuing warnings in the first instance, and excluding repeat offenders if deemed necessary.
I seem to remember that we knew who the slower people were likely to be, and while not victimising anyone, we knew where to look.
Hello to everyone too!
