New notification system

University Recreation and the grounds crew have implemented a notification system utilizing flags at the West Intramural fields, located across from Cramer Hall. The conditions of the field have fluctuated greatly due to weather and melting snow over the past few weeks. A flagpole next to the road will indicate whether or not the Intramural Fields are available for use.

Green Flag- Fields are open for use

Red Flag- Fields are closed

If the red flag is flying, the fields may not be used by anyone, even if the field is reserved. Using the fields while closed will result in use privileges being lost. Contact the Intramural Coordinator at ext. 2678 with any questions or concerns.
