A lot of preparation goes into getting ready for the Stawell Gift. On the Thursday afternoon we start measuring in the track, mark the lanes and getting signage and tents organised. Then early on Friday Morning, we continue by getting the handicap marks put in, lane ropes and finish gates all in place ready for the start of competition on Saturday Morning.

Zachary helped this year and, during a bit of a break, borrowed one of my cameras and got down really low and took this great photo of the line marking machine on the Gift Track as we measured in handicap marks every 25 cm.

Well done Zac.
