Overhead banners +
When being displayed, pass/unroll the material backwards to the row behind you. When the banner is up, do not wave it or hit on the underside. We want the overheads to lay flat. When taking it down at the capos’ direction, roll the material being passed back to you such that when it reaches the front row, it can easily be re-rolled back out again.
Table rolls +
Hold them as flat and as even as you can and do not wave them. Try to line them up with the rows that are above/below/beside you.
Card displays +
These will be laid out in a matrix so that when each card is held up, it forms a collective image, slogan, or colorful display. Do not move cards, leave them as is, otherwise the image will not be correct! Do make sure your neighbors follow this and hold the card up when prompted. Also try to line them up with the rows that are above/below/beside you.
Two pole banners +
Make sure they are facing the right direction (the field) and that you hold it flat (no sagging), particularly if multiple two-pole banners are combined for a choreo. For these, follow the capos’ leads on when to hold up and take down. For individual ones, don’t hold them up during organized displays, but feel free to hold them up at any other time. Sometimes during a game a capo will ask everybody to put their two-poles up.
See the previous item. Plus be cautious of the people around you. We do not want people to get hit with the flag poles. If a flag starts to rip, stop waving it, stow it on the chairs, and let a capo know when possible. The big flags should only be waved by people who know what they are doing. Before the match and before the GA fills up is a good time to try it out.
Before matches, we will need people to help with setup, and at the end of matches, help in tear-down and storage. Make sure gear ends up where it originated from, if it is something that is used match-to-match.
