    source for course marking arrows?

    I'm looking for course marking directional arrows printed on a plastic similar to a MTB number plate that I can use over a whole season. All the ones I have found are either very expensive or cardboard, any ideas where to look?

    You can make your own and laminate them (or have the copy shop laminate them for you). I do mine on yellow cardstock with my ink jet printer. Staple them to a wooden stake (make your own or buy them pre-made at Home Depot) and pound them into the ground to mark the course. You can make all sorts of signs and markings with your software and a printer.

    Or, get some thin plywood, cut out your signs and paint your own if you don't like cardboard. Otherwise, you have to pay one of the companies that makes the signs. I buy things from Rainbow such as these and then laminate them to last longer. Again, I just staple them to a wooden stake and drive them in the ground to mark the course.
