It's Japan. They do things a little differently than we do. I work for a Japanese firm. It's different. 😶

They just roll it up, out of the parking lot and throw it in the back of the truck when they’re done??

I would have to imagine the economics of this years Olympics are by far the worst of any for the host club, which are usually pretty bad in the end to begin with. We'll probably see cutting corners to be the norm here.

Unfortunately I’m not even a little surprised at the color choice. This Olympic Games is the most political, virtue signaling I’ve had the displeasure to learn about.

I’ll be helping keep their TV ratings low as well.

I gave up on the Olympics around the time they added Pole Dancing to the program. Another maligned and corrupted institution.

I am surprised that there is not one police officer escorting every gun. Years ago when bringing a firearm in for engraving and you had a permit, local LEO would meet your plane and take the gun to his station where the engraver could dis-assemble it and do the work bit by bit. You received your firearm at the departing aircraft and the police stood by till you departed. Don't even think about it today.

What color lenses would you recommend? I was wondering if rose colored glasses like Janis Joplin wore would be good.

Well it is a skeet field isn’t it?
That is ALSO the bunker trap field … combo fields, just not a good camera angle. The 1964 Tokyo Olympics were shot at the same location… different color and backgrounds though

Why in the world did they let Maser pick the field color! (Retorical question)

Some posts in this thread contain outdated cultural depictions.

Disrespectful… Not only that it’s pink, that is non-traditional and sure to be a distraction — but disrespectful due to the sloppy mat construction and generally thrown- together appearance…this is the olympics, not a Saturday morning cartoon. I see folds and wrinkles .. and really what is with the mats? … they are an overlay on a preexisting field.. was it done because a sponsor’s wife wanted pink and white? … probably so
