The driving school is being used to storage right now and not too conducive to field day needs. The winter field day association is a non profit group, but it costs money to run, they are asking for donations to assist with the running of the contest. Other clubs are donating monies to them, and we should do the same, it doesn’t have to be a lot, even 20 bucks or 40 would be good. It suggested to put a jar out for donations during the field day and if we don’t reach a set amount we can throw in more. It was also suggested that we put the donation can out and donate %15.
