Buy a Push Broom, take the handle off (attach flag to the wooden staff), then donate the broom to a local team, a team w/ a trailer, or just put it in your robot crate afterwards for shipping home…Same thing if you do decide to get that 70" long flag staff…into the crate afterwards. Home Depot should have what you are looking for. And you can then leave your pit space fully broom clean afterwards!
If we were to order it, would it be safe to choose Ground shipping to get it to our hotel on Wednesday? Should we use next-day air at this point? We need to have to package when we get there on Wednesday.
