 Lightning Protocol 

- click for full details

If lightning is spotted, everyone must clear the field.  Once the players are outside the field fence they are the responsibility of the parents.  Coordinators will seek shelter in the shed and start a 30 minute timer.  If another flash is witnessed, the timer will restart for 30 minutes.  The sky must be clear before anyone is allowed back on the field.
