They painted the track last night, a redish color. Alot of people upset over the color of the track, but I actually think it looks nice. It makes all of the colors on the field stand out.

They are going to hate the reddish color. The color bleeds off on everything. Especially anything that is white. My daughter was a cheerleader (from another school district) and they hated when they went to a school that had a reddish painted track. Everything that touched it turned red. The girls white cheer shoes would turn reddish brown by the end of a game. Their shoes would have to be bleached after a game. A real mess.  >:(

I saw the track today and it is brick red color.  I bet it is very hard to get off white.  Does it just rub off  or is it when it is wet that it gets on everything?  Maybe they can scotch guard their shoes.  That might help. (???)

Not trying to be negative, just stating a fact that I know from past experience. It does not matter whether the track is dry or wet.  It would still bleed off. Now it did seem like the older the track paint was, the easier it was to rub off on everything. Kind of like when you freshly paint something. Over time and in our southeast Texas weather the paint starts to turn powdery and rub off. Just stop and think, the track is made of a rubber material. Paint does not stick to rubber very well or for very long. Ever tried to paint a tire? Big mess. The band kids need to keep this in mind on their white shoes.  :ha: Just a heads up...

There are different types of surface paint.  This may be less likely to wear off.

I hope so. That would be good.
