  Electronic bookie's board
by KennetRose

Although the traditional manual boards still dominate, with the odds being changed with a marker pen and a wipe of the bookie's sleeve, an increasing number are moving towards electronic boards driven by a keyboard.

I mention this by way of a warning to photographers - you'll be using fast film at the course, but taking pictures of these boards means a slow shutter speed to adjust for the refreshing of the electronic characters!

Review Helpfulness: 3.5 out of 5 stars
