One of Col Johnstons earliest memories of Lorn Park was about painting the picket fence. Recalling the experience, he wrote “In 1923 Macartney paid another visit to Lorn Park – this time to christen the new picket fence. I remember that better because my grandfather (Alfred), an original Vice President of Norths when formed in 1903, had retired. I was his assistant at painting the new fence. Ever painted a picket fence around a cricket oval? On that first occasion I probably put more paint on me than the fence. About 20 years later a repaint was decided upon.

It took 6 months to complete! So to answer the question a couple of sentences back – DON”T!
