Chase bikes and Golf carts
In accordance with the renewed lease agreement between Barron Field,
LLC (owner) and Shuback Farms, Inc (lessee), at sanctioned contests on Barron
Field, participants are now permitted to drive MOTORCYCLES with caution, and
at their own risk, on the edge of each strip of sod (i.e. on the sod within
3 or 4 feet of each ditch) for purposes of model retrieval, but not drive
in toward the middle of a strip (so as to not harm the sod that will be harvested).
This will enable you to get much closer to the model, going the last twenty
five yards or so on foot to get the model, and then continuing on by bike
to the next farm road. Depending on the conditions, turning the bike around
on the sod may be unadvisable. Follow a method of retrieval and return that
will not harm the sod. Motorcycles with wide tires are preferred. Caution:
If there have been recent rains, as evidenced by the water level in the ditches,
this motorcycle usage is not permitted, as the soft ground can give way, causing
harm to you or to the farm. Automobiles and motorcycles are permitted on farm
roads, adjacent to farm roads, and on designated grass areas, but not on commercial
sod (except as noted above) and not on foot bridges. Golf carts are permitted
anywhere on commercial sod or farm roads or grass areas, but not on foot bridges.
