rolling out tarps

ok here is a good one (don't know where else to post)- In helping our marching band out this year- they are incorporating mats (to look like roads) on the football field- These "roads" will be like 50'-60' long by 6' wide (and have curves)- the issue is- we need to deploy them on the field in a short amount of time and unfolding takes too long- I was thinking of using something like a pool cover reel- but since it's not straight- when unrolling/rolling- it will be larger than 6' wide- Looking for suggestions on what might work better to get these long mats unrolled very quickly - thanks!

Could you fold it like an accordion then just take one end on top and walk towards the ending spot? A few guys could follow and move the curves back and forth, or if you know the pattern walk in a zig zag path.
