II.   Tour of North Field as Alternate Field
All in attendance met at the construction trailer and then walked out to the North field site. Mr. Poprik explained that in the original plan a seven-foot wall planned along the walkway that would have obstructed any views. He pointed out the eight-foot sidewalk that went around the proposed field. Mr. Harlow spoke on the proposed fence that people could stand by and watch the event. There is a flat top on the fence with bar on the bottom. Mr. Poprik pointed out the end of the field markers, showed where goal posts would go with the capability of 25 feet of netting, and all the current dirt area would be turf. He explained a large set of bleachers would be up by the cone, area to be flattened out for a set of bleachers, showed bank where people could stand or sit to watch the game, the street (Logan Ave.) would remain there but would be closed for a  game. He pointed out a flat area closest to the backside of the building that could be a good location for the band, or could have bleachers there. Mr. Jones spoke on the access to restrooms in the building, handicapped accessibility, team using the locker rooms inside building and extra portable potties would be brought in for games also.

Mr. Poprik added the press box would be situated on a sideline close to mid-field and not at an end zone, showed access for emergency vehicles, and felt this would be a nice venue. He thought bleachers would work better at the two ends for viewing the game, they could add more around. Since the bleachers  are towable, they can be moved to work at a better position. Mr. Poprik also explained the set-up, connecting of portable bleachers and reviewed/explained a portable press box.
