  5. Equipment
    1. Sally has not turned in any receipts for the equipment he purchased for the team
    2. If we cannot use the shed at the field to store equipment, look into renting a storage shed and place it in a parking spot

    2. Zweber going to go back to them with a short term, 1 year lease with less requests (only have field Tuesdays, Thursdays, Saturdays)
    3. Zweber got a quote from Dayton Bluff community field for much less than Maplewood field. Use it for negotiating leverage.
