Another Field upgrade for/by FLBA

As many parents know in the FLBA community, one of the biggest struggles has been finding ways to upgrade the fields since FLBA does not own a single field. This feedback has been heard and FLBA has worked hard to make a difference. Last year, FLBA was able to lead an effort logistically/financially and work with the city to get Fenway 5 upgraded. And all feedback was exceptional.

The most problematic field for FLBA has been the 13 Year old's since its the only age group that has the 70 feet distance for bases. In the past, all efforts have fallen short to upgrade the Century Field #21 for the almost unplayable environment.

However, FLBA (represented by Colleen Peterson, Steve Voss, & Natalka Hertaus) got on the September 16 agenda for the Forest Lake Park Board meeting and presented a field upgrade to 1 of the Kuhlenkamp fields to turn it into the new FLBA 13 year old field. The idea was approved!

Quickly the issue was: could the work get done before the MN weather so that it could be ready for 2015?

Within 2 weeks time...the FLBA board was able to get multiple bids for the work, have an off cycle adhoc vote to Approve spending the money; This was possible due to FLBA fundraising with the Gun Raffle, Signage, and website spots, and these things provided the money to vest in this field and now....the construction changes and field upgrades are complete and ready for the 2015 season!
