Tracing in the Rain
The equipment is water resistant. In instances where heavy rain is expected, we advise covering the connection between the external battery pack and the Camera’s power cables with a half-gallon plastic bag.
As for the Trace Case, this should be kept some place dry as well during the game. The Case, if closed, will be fine in the event of a light rain, but if it becomes heavy, this can pose a problem.
The Cameras themselves, Tracers and Tripods can all be exposed to the rain. Below is a picture of an example:
In the event that there is a delay, make sure that everything (tracers and camera) is powered down. We recommend that you take the battery pack with you to cover, but leave the camera where it is. Moving the camera (besides lowering it) will affect the results. 👍
Tracing when Windy
We provide 3 empty sandbags with each set of equipment. Please remember to fill all 3 sandbags with sand, ~10lbs of sand each. This will ensure the tripod is secure.
If winds begin to pick up and you notice tripod is not secure, please lower the tripod and stop tracing. (If the tripod is not secure and the camera falls, it will not be possible to process your game, and you will not receive results.)
Tracing in Extreme Heat
If you are playing in extreme heat please store the equipment in the shade before and after each game.
